Fictional erotic story posted online January 30, 2007Posted by grhomeboy in Internet Safety, Yahoo.
When a Victorian woman, in Australia, found a fictional erotic story about herself posted on the internet, it was a nightmare she had never dreamed possible.
The woman, who has asked not to be identified, contacted the police. Victoria Police computer crime squad detectives found the fabricated story posted on a number of websites, and a number of yahoo.com profiles containing personal details of women along with comments allegedly made by them. Each woman was contacted and each denied knowledge of the profiles. Detectives discovered the profiles in an online group within Yahoo.com.
They contacted Yahoo. com in the US and a copy of all data within the group was obtained. This information led police to a male suspect in regional Victoria. Photos and computer-generated pictures of women and computer equipment was seized in a raid on his home. Child pornography was also found. The suspect pleaded guilty to cyber stalking and possession of child pornography.
He was sentenced to an eight-month intensive corrections order and placed on the sex offenders registry.
