Conniving U.K. Teen Entrepreneur Dreams Up Profitable Underage Phone Sex Scam

At least one teacher is among the victims of a fake sex line sting set up — for profit — by 19-year-old U.K. lad Kelz Sutherland (not pictured), who ensnared phone sex callers into discussing their desires to have sex with kids, then threatening to turn over the tapes to their families and police if they didn’t pay up. Total earned from at least 10 identified men? About $135,000, all wired to his mother’s bank account.

“Sutherland used the cash to fund a life of luxury, hiring chauffeur-driven cars to go on nights out at expensive bars,” reports the Daily Record, which says Sutherland placed ads for the phone sex line in the back pages of porn rags, then received the calls in the bedroom in his mother’s home, where he lives.

That’s where things would get creepy.

Some of the callers were interested in gay sex, others in sex with women. Sutherland would pretend to be a woman if the caller was heterosexual. Once he had a caller on the line, Sutherland would try to steer the conversation to illegal underage sex. He then changed his voice to become the “monitor” and threatened to expose the caller to police.

If the men did not pay up immediately, Sutherland would bombard them with threatening phone calls. He obtained callers’ details, including dates of birth, phone numbers and even the addresses of relatives and friends.

This went on for two years until one man, who was told to hand over more than $12,000, went to the police with allegations of blackmail. Sucks for these guys, though I honestly can’t feel too bad for adult men who fantasize about child rape (although some of the men cut the calls off when Sutherland brought up underage sex). And neither does Sutherland, who told police when put in custody, “These men are all f ****** paedophiles. That ‘s why I targeted them. Why is it me that’s sitting here and not them?”
