AFTER only hours of chatting over a social networking site on Saturday, a 20-year-old man and a 16-year-old girl agreed to exchange nude pictures of themselves.
And her parents are now threatening to expose his photograph, the frightened man told China Press.
The man, who wished to be known only as L, said he had kept his word to the girl but the teenager, while not keeping to their agreement on the WeChat site, had offered to have sex with him for RM200 at a hotel in Ipoh.
L, from Kampar, then went to the city and called up the number the girl had given him.
The person at the other end of the line, however, asked if he was looking for a prostitute.
Shocked at the unexpected response, L quickly hung up and returned to his hometown.
“The girl later sent me a message to say she had slept with another man,” he said.
“The next day, a person claiming to be the girl's parent condemned me for sending my nude picture to her.
“The person threatened to tell my parents and circulate the picture,” said L, fearing his photograph will now go viral.
