There have been developments in the naked pictures scam! It's probably best to just post the primary documents so you can see for yourself (sorry, no nudity involved).

Hi Jen,

Are you coordinating for PAFA in an official capacity? I just called Allison Syvertsen at PAFA, and she said she hadn’t heard of you. You tried to Cc your first e-mail to her, but I see you spelled her e-mail address incorrectly.


"Her" utterly AMAZING reply:

Hi Melissa,

There is no Allison Syvertsen here at the Portland A of FA. There is an Allen Syvertson, who is our (acting) Project Coordinator. He should know me well, since he hired me and is my manager.

I have been working here for 11 years, the last three part-time since the birth of my child. I don't know if you would call it an "official" capacity, but it is a paid staff position and I serve on the Advisory Board and was its co-chairwoman in 2007-2008.

Hope that answers your questions.


I know. I know. I suppose I could have strung this out for a few more e-mails, but I have a busy X-Files viewing schedule to keep up this week.

Hi Jen,

Have you heard of the website Google? It’s really neat. You can search for all kinds of things on the Internet and use it to verify information. For example, I searched for the Portland Academy of Fine Arts, but came up with nothing. Nothing! It seems really strange – nay, impossible – that an educational institution would have absolutely zero web presence. Also, the e-mail address you tried to forward your first e-mail to was at the domain That’s the domain of the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, which, according to Google, is the only relevant PAFA in the country.

I looked up your IP address from the e-mails you have sent. They indicate that you sent them from a Verizon FiOS static address in NYC ( , and an Optimum Online account in New Jersey ( I have contacted the ISPs and told them about your activity, which I am sure goes against their terms of service. I also forwarded all our e-mails to PAFA (the real and only PAFA) in Philadelphia, as they were curious about someone conducting fraudulent activity in their name.

I also blogged about all your e-mails on my website

Thanks for providing some good laughs amongst me and my friends.


Hello, creeptastic person! If you're reading this, I am genuinely curious about the following questions. You can answer by commenting.

  1. Do you make money from this scam, or is it a sexual fetish thing? Or is there some other reason you try to scam naked pictures from random models? In a word: Why?

  2. Did you know that there are lots of pictures of naked girls on the internet that you can find without starting deceptive e-mail dialogues?

  3. Ignore that last question; I was being facetious. How many models did you fool with this scam?

  4. How long have you been conducting scams like this?

  5. Is this an original idea, or are you following in someone else's footsteps?

  6. How old are you? Are you actually male?

  7. What is your living situation? Are you in any kind of relationship?

  8. Have you ever been in any kind of trouble with the law?

  9. What's the kinkiest thing you've ever done?

  10. What is your favorite kind of cheese?
