How easy are you making it for hackers? At the time she contacted police, in March, Wolf was not a national figure — even though she was Miss Teen California — and lived in an apartment and attended Orange Coast College in Costa Mesa. Wolf got a Facebook alert that someone had tried to change her password to the social networking site, then noticed other passwords had been changed and that her Twitter avatar was now a half-nude picture of herself. A short time later, she received what would be the first of many messages, this one featuring pictures of Wolf at her Riverside County address and others apparently taken months earlier when she lived in Orange County, says the criminal complaint. The message explained “what’s going to happen” if Wolf didn’t send pictures or videos or “do what I tell you to do” in a five-minute Skype videoconference, according to the criminal complaint. “Either you do one of the things listed below or I upload these pics and a lot more (I have a LOT more and those are better quality) on all your accounts for everybody to see and your dream of being a model will be transformed into a pornstar (sic),” he wrote. Recalling that day, Wolf told NBC’s “Today” show she started “screaming (and) bawling my eyes out.” “I wasn’t sure what to do,” she said in August, shortly after her Miss Teen USA win. “So it was terrifying.” The messenger had taken great efforts to hide his online identity. But investigators were eventually able to find corresponding e-mails, IP addresses and other communications they linked to Abraham. They also tied him to online forums asking about malware, how to control webcams, and hacking into Facebook accounts. Investigators also linked him to at least eight other young women — some of them, like Wolf, from Southern California, though others were from as far away as Moldova. The victims told authorities similar stories: of a person they did not know saying, and in some cases proving, he had nude images and making demands as a result. The stalker claimed to have 1,000 photographs of one woman, the complaint said. When she asked, “Why are you doing this to me?” the response was, “I told you I’ll answer any questions after you Skype.” As an FBI agent was speaking by phone to this young woman, she logged onto her Instagram account to find it populated by nude pictures of her, the complaint said.
