Maria was an events organiser and her job took her all over the world. She had partied with the best of them on all the continents of the globe and she loved her life. She was married to Don who stayed at home with their twin sons or travelled with her when she went, if it was not too far.
Maria was invited out to Dubai to organise a huge bash for the horse racing fraternity there. She had been before and loved the Arab state. It was certainly a good place to party. One of the twins had a chicken pox and with the other one likely to break out any day soon, Maria went alone.
Maria threw herself into the event and on the night had a great time. In fact she dank too much champagne and ended up sleeping with one of the guests, a tall and handsome Arab man. They had a really wild night and by the morning Maria was left with a very sore head and a horrible feeling of guilt. She decided that she would just have to put it behind her; after all, she was not going to repeat the mistake and would never make the same mistake again.
As soon as she got home Maria realised that she was not going to be able to consign her night of lust to history. She had an email from the man she had spent the night with. He sent her a clip of their wild sex session and promised that he would send it to her husband and all the people in her mailing list, including her very high profile clients, if she did not pay be $10k. He sent the details of how she could pay by Western Union.
Fortunately, because Maria had worked with us before, and came straight to us to tell us what had happened. She was very embarrassed but we assured her that she was not the first or the last case we would see of this kind of sextortion. We got the details from her and the Wilsons Detectives cyber crime detection team set to work to trace the source of the email working with with our operatives in Dubai. Maria was not the first victim of the gang who, after a lot of work, were identified and arrested by the Dubai police.
Maria’s reputation was safe but it was not quite a happy ending as due to the laws in the United Arab Emirates and that she had been identified on the video she will not be able to travel there again. That could be a problem for Maria and her work but she accepts that it is a small price to pay for the fact that her secret will not come out.
