A 37-year-old Secret Service officer assigned to the White House is accused of sending a picture of his genitals to a detective masquerading as a 14-year-old girl in Delaware, The USA Today reports.

Lee Robert Monroe, of Church Hill, Md., is facing state and federal charges after investigators said he used a cellphone social media app to send the naked photo and try to set up a meeting.

Some of the communication occurred as Monroe was working in the uniformed division of the Secret Service, according to a criminal complaint filed Monday in U.S. District Court in Delaware.

Moore is charged in federal court with attempted transfer of obscene material to a minor. He also faces two state charges of soliciting a minor for sex and one count of obscenity material provided to a minor.

Florida Man Accused of Plotting Terrorist Attack on Sept. 11 Anniversary

fbi logo largeA 20-year-old man living with his parents in Florida is accused of encouraging a terrorist attack in Kansas City on today’s 14th anniversary of Sept. 11, the Washington Post reports. 

Joshua Ryne Goldberg was charged with distribution of information relating to explosives, destructive devices, and weapons of mass destruction.

“Hopefully there will be some jihad on the anniversary of 9/11,” Goldberg is accused of telling an FBI informant in a direct message.

The FBI said lengthy discussions occurred between Goldberg and the informant.

“The Jews are the worst enemies of Allah,” a social media post read. “When Islam conquers Australia, every single Jew will be slaughtered like the filthy cockroaches that they are.”

Goldberg is accused of offering to help detonate a bomb.

“Have you decided what kind of attack to carry out on 9/11 … I was thinking a bombing. We could make pipe bombs and detonate them at a large public event.”

Twitter Becomes FBI’s Most Effective Informant As ISIS Supporters Take to Social Media

One of the FBI’s most effective informants in the crackdown against terrorism has been Twitter.

The social network is an “extraordinarily effective way to sell shoes, or vacations, or terrorism,” FBI Director James Comey said recently, reports The Huffington Post. “It’s buzz, buzz, buzz, buzz, buzz. It’s the constant feed … the devil on your shoulder all day long, saying, ‘Kill, kill, kill.'”

What makes it such an effective tool for investigators is the ability to monitor tweets, especially those supporting ISIS.

Investigators said Twitter has helped crack numerous cases recently and continues to be helpful

FBI Says Twitter Needs to Do More to Monitor Site for Terrorism-Related Activity

Could Twitter do more to stop terrorists from recruiting others?

It’s a debate waging in the Senate after an FBI official told Fox Business News that Twitter “needs to do more in setting up teams to troll, monitor and review all terrorist-related tweets and content.”

Twitter fired back that it notifies authorities of immediate threats and shuts down terrorist-related accounts. But a Twitter spokesman said, “Like all of our technology industry peers, we do not proactively monitor content.:”

A 2016 funding bill would require Twitter and other social media companies to report terrorism, but it was blocked earlier this week by Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore.

“Internet companies should not be subject to broad requirements to police the speech of their users,” Wyden said.

Wyden said stopping terrorism is a top priority, “But I haven’t yet heard any law enforcement or intelligence agencies suggest that this provision will actually help catch terrorists.”

Presidential candidate and shrewd businessman Donald Trump is asking the FBI to investigate a Twitter threat he received from an account purportedly run by escaped Mexican drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, ABC News reports.

Trump said the threat came after he made comments about the escaped drug lord.

“I’m fighting for much more than myself,” Trump said about the threat Monday in a statement. “I’m fighting for the future of our country which is being overrun by criminals. You can’t be intimidated. This is too important.”

One of the tweets read: “Mexico’s biggest drug lord escapes from jail. Unbelievable corruption, and USA is paying the price. I told you so!” tweeted Trump.

On an account attributed to El Chap, Trump received the response: “Keep f—ing around, and I will make you swallow your whore words.”

Investigators are trying to determine the account’s origins.

FBI Seeks Help with Disturbing ‘Sextortion’ Case Involving Hundreds of Girls

The FBI may be handling its biggest case yet of “sextortion.”

The bureau is asking for the public’s help finding hundreds of teenage victims who sent sexually explicit photos to a Florida man after he threatened them, WJXT reports. 

Lucas Chansler, 31, was sentenced to 105 years in federal prison last year, but hundreds of his victims have never been identified.

The bureau said he pretended to be a 15-year-old boy. After convincing a teenage girl to send a sexually explicit photo, he threatened to post the picture online unless the girl sent more photos.

This happened hundreds of time in the U.S., Canada and the UK, according to the FBI.

FBI: Women Looking for Love Online Targeted Most Often by Internet Scams

By Steve Neavling 

People looking for love online are targeted for Internet fraud more than anyone else, the FBI revealed in its annual online fraud report.

The Internet Crime Complaint Center, or IC3, said romance confidence scams cost victims an average of $14,214.

Although men are slightly more likely to be victimized by Internet crime, the report  found that women were disproportionately victimized by romance cons, accounting for 70% of the cases, NBC reports. 

“Criminals search dating websites, chat rooms, and social media websites for personally identifiable information, and use well-rehearsed scripts to attract potential victims,” it said. “Victims of these scams believe they are in a relationship with someone who is honest and trustworthy without meeting them in person.”

IC3 offered the following tip to avoid being scammed:

  • Don’t respond to any unsolicited email, phone call or mail requesting your personal information.
  • Don’t fill out forms in email messages asking for personal information.
  • Don’t click on email links. Instead, go to the official website of the business or group and start from there,
  • Maintain at least two email addresses — one for people you know and one for all other purposes.
  • Frequently check your bank statements to avoid unauthorized charges and monitor for fraud.
  • Never give your credit card number over the phone unless you made the call.
  • Don’t do business with people or companies operate only from a post office box address.
  • Don’t accept packages which you didn’t order.
  • If someone you’ve never met tells you he or she loves you but needs money to visit you, don’t buy it.

Secret Service Kept Busy Monitoring President Obama’s New Twitter Account

By Steve Neavling

President Obama’s decision to join Twitter unleashed a torrent of hateful, even threatening tweets that have already caught the attention of the Secret Service.

Not only that, the White House is archiving every response to @POTUS, the Washington Post reports. 

So the newspaper kindly reminds readers to be wise when tweeting to the president of the United States.

“Just seconds after posting something online it has likely been disseminated to dozens of people and definitely been archived by an unknowable number of automated systems,” the programmer Pehr Hovey wrote in his master’s thesis on deleted tweets in 2010. “Though a delete button may provide solace to those having second thoughts, in reality it is a façade.”
