Have you been flirting online with this girl?

Well, in actual fact, you haven't.

'Sarah Ruddenklau' is actually one Cameron Stuart Hore, 27, of Belfast.

Hore was arrested last week and charged with eight counts of sexual exploitation of people under 18, blackmail, obtaining by deception and travelling to meet a young person after sexual grooming from his online exploits where he contacted a number of young males through Facebook and MSN Messenger and showed them nude photographs of his bogus identity, Sarah.

Hore tried to persuade his male victims into exposing themselves and to conduct sex acts on webcam.

It is also alleged that Hore, under the alias Dan McPherson, befriended some of these victims online and offered between $1000 to $4000 in exchange for performing sexual acts on them and many passed on their details including bank accounts but no money was paid.

Hore awaits a bail application on November 22.
