CHENNAI: A man, who put up a picture of his wife as the WhatsApp display picture, was in for a rude shock when a cyber scamster downloaded it, morphed it obscenely and demanded money.
Ayanavaram police have launched a hunt to arrest the miscreant.
The issue came to light after the complainant approached the police claiming that he got a message with an attachment of his wife’s picture with an unknown man from a number and that the sender reportedly threatened to upload it online if the former fails to pay the money.
Further investigations are underway.
