Blogger ‘ready to meet FBI over celebrity nude photo hacker’
Washington: The Parisian blogger, who is reportedly under the FBI scanner for publishing celebrities’ nude photos obtained illegally by a ring of hackers, has agreed to meet and cooperate with the authorities.
The FBI is investigating a group of people allegedly hacking their way into A-list email accounts such as Scarlett Johansson, Christina Aguilera, Jessica Alba and Vanessa Hudgens and stealing naked photos – many of which ended up on the blogger’s website.
“I’m just a blogger who loves celebrities as you know, who reposts pictures, mag scans and videos that I find on the net and that’s all,” the blogger, who goes by the screen name DeepAtSea, posted on his site.
“Now, if it’s true that there’s an investigation on me, I have nothing to hide because I made nothing, I don’t know if there’re [sic] fbi offices outside the usa but if yes and if you want to meet me, i’m ok,” posted the blogger.
“But I really hope for the safety of the usa (and the world) than the fbi have better to do of their days than to stalk me,” the blogger added.
The blogger told RadarOnline.com in an exclusive interview that while they are willing to meet with the FBI, they have had ‘no contact with authorities’.
“I don``t know who the hacker is,” said ‘DeepAtSea’, adding that he did find someone online claiming to be the alleged hacker and contacted them.
“I asked him if he was not afraid to go to jail and he told me, ‘Well I sold other stuff before and never been to jail’,” ‘DeepAtSea’ added.
When the news of the scandal broke, the blogger had gone underground, shutting down his site and deleting his social networking pages.
