Eventually, they met and started a real-life affair. But by late last year, QianQian wanted to break up. She had fallen in love with another player.
Qinmou, 24, became jealous and threatened to release a sex tape they made together if QianQian didn't pay him the equivalent of nearly US$8,000—approximately US$3,100 of it was for emotional pain, and approximately $4,700 was for the in-game gear and support.
QianQian wrote him a check, and then went to the authorities. Qinmou, who's unemployed, was picked up for extortion. Game over.
