The beautiful Cassidy Wolf was recently crowned Miss Teen USA.
It wasn’t long, however, before she encountered problems. She was secretly filmed in her room on her webcam, which was hacked. The stranger who claims to have explicit photos of her has been threatening to release them unless she does what he wants.
Now federal officials are investigating.
19-year-old Wolf was only crowned Miss Teen USA on Saturday. Since the hacking, she has been traveling the country, trying to educate young people about cyber hacking. She said, “This next year I’m just so excited to be able to share my story and raise awareness in young teens about what can happen.”
As reported by the Daily Mail:
Speaking to Today.com, Wolf said that she was targeted months before she beat 51 other young women to take the Miss Teen USA title at Saturday night’s pageant in the Bahamas.
‘I was just a normal girl in high school,’ she said.
Around four months ago, she was notified that someone had tried to log into her Facebook account from a different state, Today.com reported.
She then received an anonymous email from a stranger saying he had photographs of her in her room that were taken when her computer’s webcam was hacked.
Wolf did not give details about the photo, but said they showed her doing things that you only do in the “privacy of your room.” One can only imagine. She said, “I wasn’t aware that somebody was watching me [on my webcam]. The light [on the camera] didn’t even go on, so I had no idea.”
Wolf is a dancer and plans to take classes at the New York Film Academy. She says she is humbled to have won the pageant on Saturday.
