State Police in Lawrence County are reminding people to use “sound judgment” when dealing with strangers over the internet.

The warning comes as police investigate a report from a New Beave Borough man who told officers that he exchanged nude pictures with a woman over the internet.

The woman, who the man says he doesn’t know, threatened to send his nude photo to his friends and family unless he sent her $10,000.

The victim says he sent the woman a $250 money order to somewhere outside the United States.
