SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) - A Missouri woman says she is being blackmailed by a California man who is threatening to send a nude webcam video of her to her friends and workplace if she doesn't pay him $5,000.

The 38-year-old Springfield woman told police she had been recorded as a "full nude web-cam girl" for a singles website. The woman says the website "matched" her, based on personality, with a man Nov. 10.

The Springfield News-Leader ( reports the woman received emails from the San Diego man threatening to release the video unless she paid him. She went to police Friday with emails from the man referencing a video involving the naked woman and her "lovers."

Police say the woman declined to answer questions about whether any of the videos involved other people.
