Egyptian man blackmails flight attendant with private pictures to get Dubai job
A 30-year-old clerk stood trial in a Dubai court for threatening an airhostess of sending private photos of her to her boss and ex-husband if she does not get him a job at the airline company she works for, the Khaleej Times reported.
The woman, 33, said that the defendant started harassing and stalking her when she refused his marriage proposal. They had met at a telecommunications company branch in 2016 and became romantically involved until she broke up with him in 2017, according to the newspaper.
The clerk lost his job in May 2017, where he then told her that he had hacked her phone, and threatened to spread her private photos.
According to Khaleej Times, he lied to the telecommunication company saying that he needed to check her account for work-related purposes, where he then replaced her email address with his own address.
“On July 6, 2017, he sent me a message that he would force me to lose my job after disgracing me among my family members and among the directors where I worked,” the newspaper reported her as saying.
“He also said he would describe my house to my ex-husband. He also blackmailed me and threatened to misuse his photos with my son to damage my reputation unless I did get him the job he wanted. After I had a mental breakdown, I complained against him at al-Rafaa police station,” she added.
The complainant also said that he had stolen some cheques from her car, which she also reported to the police.
