Sexting scam targets Iowa men

The Des Moines Register reports on a sexting scam that the Iowa Department of Public Safety says has targeted some men in Iowa.
The scam starts by an alleged woman contacting a man through an online dating app or website. Within days, the woman says they should start texting. The texting then turns sexual and includes the exchange of nude photos and plans to meet in the future, according to IDPS.
After the male victim receives the photo of the woman, he is then called by a person claiming to be a part of Iowa's Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. The scammer tells him the woman is underage and there is now child pornography on his phone.
