Extortr: Blackmail The World

Posted on June 19, 2006 Under Life

We don’t usually post jokes here– but this one was too good to pass up on. Extortr is a spoof-site that makes blackmailing easy, or as they put it “the most efficient way to blackmail the world.” You upload a scandalous photo or video as evidence, set a price, then email an anonymous threat. If your demands aren’t paid your upload goes public. While the actual Extortr service doesn’t function, it’s a hilarious concept and I don’t think it would take much programming to make it a reality.
