DAVIE, Florida — For a good time, do not call this gal.
A Florida woman was busted for extortion after sending threatening text messages to a man she didn’t know, demanding he pay her $500 or she would tell his wife he was cheating on her.
The strange episode began after Shawn Schmoll, of Bradenton, went out with pals for some drinks at the Big Dawgs Sports Cafe in Pembroke Pines, police said. While there, he briefly left his phone unattended on a table.
Later that evening, after Schmoll had returned home, the phony femme fatale struck, bombarding him with texts demanding he send $300 via cash transfer app or she would expose him as a cheat.
But rather than pay up, Schmoll called the Davie police. They set a controlled call with the woman, during which she upped the ante to $500, saying she had a photo of the two of them together at the bar that she would send to his wife.
She then asked that he go to an ATM and then text her a photo of him holding the cash. She then directed him to a location to hand off the money.
Cops followed, and when Schmoll handed over the cash, they arrested 22-year-old Briyana Valls, and charged her with extortion.
During her interrogation with cops, Valls admitted she didn’t have a picture of her and Schmoll together and that she needed the money to help her brother, who had recently incurred several large medical bills.
