This week two U.S. Marines who claim to be the victims of sexual extortion have come forward to Jacksonville, N.C. authorities. Due to the nature of the allegations the names of the Marines have not been released.
There is much speculation about the crime and how it was perpetrated on not one, but two, Camp Lejeune Marines. Many find the story almost too outrageous to comprehend for battle-trained warfighters.
Authorities have charged Patrick Francois Georges, 24, with extortion and crimes against nature.
Here is how the extortion scheme allegedly went down:
The Marines, in separate incidences, contacted Georges on MeetMe.com, a social networking site, thinking they were making contact with a woman. They made plans to meet the woman at her home on King Street in Jacksonville.
When arriving at the home, the person emailing them invited them to come into the house, not meeting them at the door.
After entering, Patrick Georges would then accuse the Marine of breaking into this home and threatened to call police if the Marine did not perform a sex act. One Marine states that he was assaulted when he tried to leave the house.

A local cab driver stated he had multiple calls to pick-up and deliver people to that address. It was not clear if there were other Marines who had been duped and assaulted.
