U.S. Attorney William Hochul told the Buffalo News that at least 10 people were victimized in the largest cyber-stalking case ever seen in the region.

James Allen of Detroit faces felony charges of cyber-stalking, trafficking in computer passwords and making harassing phone calls. He appeared in Buffalo federal court last week.

Court papers depict Allen as a predator who targeted girls as young as 14 by using Internet-related technology to identify and contact them. He's accused of threatening to send out nude pictures of them if they didn't agree to Skype video chats. Authorities don't believe he really had any pictures.

Allen's defense lawyer declined to comment for the Buffalo News story.
