Cassidy Wolf, the newly crowned Miss Teen USA, is at the center of a ‘sextortion’ investigation involving naked pictures allegedly taken of her on her webcam.

The FBI is looking into anonymous threats made against the 19-year-old Californian earlier this year, before she won the beauty pageant.

According to Wolf, several months ago Facebook notified her that someone had attempted to log into her account from another state.

She subsequently received an e-mail from a person who said he had photos of her that were taken in her bedroom via the webcam on her computer — and demanded money in exchange for keeping the pictures under wraps.

“I wasn’t aware that somebody was watching me (on my webcam),’’ Wolf told Today.com. “The light (on the camera) didn’t even go on, so I had no idea.”

The case is under investigation, preventing Wolf from saying more about the case.

After being named Miss California Teen USA, she traveled to schools and educated kids about protecting themselves from cybercrime — a cause she plans to continue to pursue as Miss Teen USA.
