Prosperous German immigrant Jovica "Joshua" Petrovic warned his young American wife Megan that he had "Croation blood," his own code for "don't fuck with me."

That was only one play in Petrovic's obsessive strategy of humiliation, stalking and harassment online and through the postal service. Petrovic ended up in federal prison.

"I want you to win the Pulitzer Prize," he told a reporter for the St. Louis Riverfront Times when he met with him.

A fellow in Las Vegas did neither and ended up getting scammed by a Florida woman who later threatened to send his wife the pics and to kill his family if he didn't send more cash. Miami New Times has the story
