Several weeks to become a Photoshop expert
Jan 10, 2012

An article in a local newspaper:

"A CHINESE man faces blackmail charges for using photos of more than 40 government officials to make forged porn images in a bungled attempt to extort cash.

The suspect -- identified only as Jia -- spent several weeks learning how to use Photoshop before embarking on his ploy, the Shanghai Daily reported.

With his newfound skills, he downloaded head shots from the local government website before crudely inserting them into pornography he had taken from the internet.

For good measure, 35-year-old Jia even hired prostitutes to stage his own raunchy snaps.

With his "evidence" now assembled, he wrote to his targets in December, informing them he was an IT technician who, having found the x-rated images on a computer, wanted 10,000 yuan ($1,584) in hush-money.

Officials in Taizhou, a city in China's eastern Zhejiang Province, were unimpressed by his mocked-up smut and called in cops.

Jia was arrested on Jan. 5 with ten unsent letters and charged with blackmail, Zhejiang Online reported."
