Blackmail doesn’t pay. Not when you’re Alex Lo Man-nam, at least.
A gay blackmailer who threatened to tell a Hong Kong primary school teacher’s employers about their one-night stand was Thursday beginning a three-year jail term.
Alex Lo Man-nam, 21, extorted nearly 4,000 US dollars from his 34-year-old victim with threats to tell his school they had sex when Lo was under 21, the age for gay legal consent in Hong Kong.
In addition to receiving jail time, Lo – who has blackmailed before – must repay the four grand. That’s only fair.
