AN inquiry is underway after a Huddersfield man found an intimate video of himself posted on the internet.
YouTube officials are now looking into the blackmail complaints made by Jonathan Slee, who believes the film was posted by a woman he met online.
Mr Slee was left highly embarrassed by the woman he had met through a dating website.
The pair were believed to have got on well and were chatting regularly through both www.justchat.co.uk and MSN.
Eventually in a bid to get to know one another better, they began talking through a web cam.
But things went badly wrong when Mr Slee found several intimate shots of himself on the broadcasting channel.
The woman, who referred to herself as Susan, had posted the same video more than three times under an offensive heading.
Mr Slee said she then demanded money to take down the postings.
He explained that as soon as the threats began, her name changed to “Roxanna” and she announced she was actually based in Romania.
