An 18-year-old Innisfil man reports that a woman he met on Facebook threatened to post a nude recording of him on social media and to his friends, family and workplace if he did not donate to a charity. Police were notified of the incident on Monday, April 23, 2018 around 8:00 p.m. The man said an attractive woman appeared on his chat screen, wanted to talk and then offered to exchange naked photos.
