Japanese teen phisher

This pubescent Japanese voyeur scammed young girls to get naked pictures of them. He’s in big trouble now.

Japanese police said they had arrested a 14-year-old boy on suspicion of fraud after he allegedly used the Internet to steal personal details in Japan's first case of phishing involving a minor.

The boy allegedly threatened people, mainly young girls, so they would send him naked photos of themselves after he had already obtained their identification details and other personal information, local media said.
