Robert Dion Ables

39-year-old Robert Dion Ables of Hutchins, Texas, is accused of allegedly extorting a 14-year-old Canadian girl for explicit images of herself. Ables is believed to have used the mobile messaging app Kik in order to attempt to blackmail his victim.

Investigators say that Ables posed as a 14-year-old girl when asking the girl for explicit photos. When he received them, he is said to have sent similar pictures of a different girl to the victim. He then threatened the victim that he would post her pictures on Facebook if she did not continue to send him pictures.

Ables allegedly admitted to the crime and said that he had been involved in online extortion since 2014 which he says has made him $50,000 in two years.

Ables said he obtained sexually explicit photographs of minors by contacting girls on KIK Messenger.

Another good warning for your kids is that if a stranger online claims to be or around their age, they still could be a predator. Posing as a child is just one of many ways that online predators use to gain your child’s trust. This is not a rare occurrence on Kik either. As I have mentioned many times in the past, Kik is inundated with sex offenders and pedophiles.

UPDATE 7/7/2017: Ables has been sentenced to 80 years in federal prison after pleading guilty.
