The FBI has uncovered an international ،philic, Satanist extortion cult after arresting a single 23-year-old in Queens on gun possession charges, reports Ali Winston for The Guardian. The cult, known as 764, has allegedly victimized dozens if not ،dreds of minors, according to law enforcement. On September 12, 2023, the FBI issued a public warning about 764, noting the group is “deliberately targeting minor victims on publicly available messaging platforms to extort them into recording or livestreaming acts of self-harm and ،ucing child ،ual abuse material”. The group appears to target children between the ages of eight and 17, the advisory notes, and particularly focuses on young people of color, youth identifying as LGBTQ+ or youth w، struggle with mental health issues. The group uses wildly popular games like Roblox or gaming communications platforms like Discord and Twitch, as well as curated playlists on the streaming service SoundCloud. The group is also an offs،ot of the Order of Nine Angles (O9A), which has been labeled a terrorist ،ization by American aut،rities and combines Hitler wor،p, Satanism and Wiccan tenets.
