European Cyber Extortion Case Study
Online Smear Campaign and Hacking
In the video below, Rexxfield Private Investigator and Page1.me founder Michael Roberts, explains the digital and social forensics investigation regarding the European Cyber Extortion case. The investigators uncovered a massive organised crime network that threatened wealthy European entrepreneurs with online smear campaigns that they would carry out if the victims did not submit to the extortion demands.
This cyber crime investigation lasted over 7 months. After the discoveries were fully analysed and documented, the Interpol and a number of German police jurisdictions used the data for further action.
