Charges: Man Hacked Into Women’s Facebook Accounts

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A Woodbury man is accused of hacking into young women’s Facebook accounts in order to steal their identifications and photos.

Timothy Peter Noirjean, 26, faces 13 counts of identity theft after police say he hacked into the Facebook accounts of at least 13 different women, took their personal photos and posted them on adult, sex-oriented websites.

“He had quite a large number of young ladies who he was into their accounts manipulating their data and using them as spring boards to attack other friends of theirs,” said Oakdale Police Captain Jack Kettler.

According to the criminal complaint, investigators say Noirjean accessed the women’s accounts by posing as a friend of the account holder and asking questions that would reveal what their passwords might be. Investigators say in another case, Noirjean allegedly accessed a woman’s account after she added a man named “Steve Mills” as a friend through Facebook, which sent a link that crashed her computer.

When police spoke with Noirjean about the hacking claims, he allegedly admitted to the crime but said he didn’t know he was doing anything wrong. He said he would look at a Facebook page, get the email type and get the person to reveal the answers to security questions about their accounts, then go in and reset their passwords. He said he would use Facebook accounts that he hacked to gain access to their friends’ accounts, as well.

In total, Noirjean said he gained access or attempted to gain access to more than 100 profiles.

Noirjean told police he kept the photos of the women in a folder on his laptop labeled “Stuff” and kept the answers to their email security questions in a folder titled, “Victory.”

Noirjean is scheduled to appear in court on May 26.

    Hey some of us had better things to do than learn English in school like look at chicks and stuff.

    If you want to speak proper English move to England. All grammar police should be deported to Louisiana or Canada and speak French.

    We speak American down here. Or as they say in Austin “We spoke Amerrycan here
