Facebook abuser targets own girlfriend
BRITAIN: A man created a fake identity on social networking site Facebook and used a foolish act of hers to abuse her mercilessly for six months.
Darrell Bingham, 49, posed as an American football player and sent a firend request to his girlfriend, which the latter accepted, The Sun revealed. He cajoled her to send him her topless picture, she did and committed the worst mistake of her life.
Then he started blackmailing her and threatened to email her revealing picture to her colleagues if she did not perform sex acts on herself day and night on a webcam, the daily said.
The woman confessed to her boyfriend, without realising that he was responsible for the online torture. He simply patted her on the head and told her to continue and it would solve itself.
The boyfriend went so far as to lie to his girlfriend and tell her that he had murdered her online enemy. He faked the footballer's death and showed his girlfriend a doctored image of the football player. The girlfriend's sigh of relief did not last too long as a someone called 'Chat', supposedly the footballer's friend, started blackmailing her. Chet claimed his friend had sent him her topless image, the paper said.
Finally, the woman broke down in front of her colleagues and told them the entire saga. Her colleagues informed the police and they tracked down the footballer and 'Chat' to none other than her boyfriend Darrell.
The prosecutor told the court that Darrell was a sadist who like watching his girlfriend in pain and dangled her like a puppet on a string.
Bingham was sentenced to seven years of jail for causing a person to engage in sexual activity without consent.
The girlfriend is just glad that her nightmare is over.
