GREAT NECK - Police say a Great Neck man has been arrested on charges that he victimized 15 women in three states in a sexual extortion scheme.

FBI agents arrested Adam Savader, 21, Tuesday at his Great Neck home on Hutchinson Court.

Savader's Facebook page says he is a former campaign intern for Republican presidential candidate, Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, and Newt Gingrich.

According to prosecutors, Savader sent anonymous text messages using Google voice numbers to 15 women, some from Long Island.

According to officials, Savader got photos of the women through hacked email accounts. Savadar then threatened to send the photos to their friends and family unless the women sent him more nude photos of themselves, police say.

Federal officials say Savader sent some of the victims links to a photo-sharing website where nude pictures of the victims had already been posted.

An alleged victim reported it to Michigan police who then contacted the FBI.

According to the criminal complaint, FBI agents traced the text messages to Savader's home.

Savader faces charges of internet extortion and cyberstalking. He is in federal custody and could get five years in prison if convicted.
