+ - FBI/IC3 says online mug shot "extortion" a growing problem->

Submitted by coondoggie
coondoggie writes: The FBI/Internet Crime Complaint Center reported today it has received "hundreds of complaints" from people claiming they have seen their mug shots on 20 different websites, who all often then charge anywhere from $100 to $500 to remove it. Thing is, if the victim paid to have it removed once, it likely pops up again elsewhere.
