The sex extortion short con Internet dating blackmail scam
Kevin Zunk

First, I have to say that the names Tonya Blaze and Kevin Zunk are perfect names for a pair of con-artists, aren’t they?

Here’s the con: A man (let’s call him Roy) signs up on an Internet dating site. Roy is looking for another man to be "more than friends." Roy does meet a man online (let’s call him Kevin) and they get friendly and frisky. Kevin suggests they exchange nude photos. Roy sends nude photos of himself.

Kevin contacts him in a panic and says that Roy actually sent the nude photos to his daughter. Kevin says his wife is freaking out and Roy needs to send him some money to change the phone number and for court costs.

Roy doesn’t respond.

Then an FBI agent contacts Roy, who says that Kevin and his wife are going to press charges against Roy unless he cooperates.

Roy panics and sends Kevin money.

Kevin sends more and more messages, saying if Roy doesn’t send more money he’ll call Roy’s boss at work and let him know what he’s been charged with.

Roy contacts the FBI.

Kevin Zunk, 43, and Tonya Blaze, 40, are arrested.

They had extorted over $10,000 from victims in multiple states using the same con.
