The police arrested a 22-year-old male OnlyFans creator in Singapore on Dec. 29 for allegedly transmitting photos and videos of his private parts electronically on the OnlyFans online platform.
Continued despite order and police warning
In a police news release on the same date, the police said they received a report on Sep. 4 of a man allegedly electronically transmitting obscene materials, or more specifically images and videos of his private parts, through his OnlyFans account.
The police later seized the man's OnlyFans account and served the man an order to not access the account on Oct. 11.
At that time, the police said they also warned the man that a breach of the order would amount to a criminal offence.
However, the man accessed the same account, despite the warning from the police.
The police said he did this by writing in to the administrators of OnlyFans to claim that his account was not secure, and the account's password was subsequently reset.
After regaining access to his account, the police said the man allegedly continued to electronically transmit more obscene materials through this account and a secondary account.
Served a "fresh order"
The man was then served a fresh order on Nov. 1 to not access both of his OnlyFans accounts.
The police added they are conducting further investigations into possible fresh offences, which include a further breach of the order which was served on Nov. 1.
The man will be charged in court on Dec. 30, 2021.
Possible punishment for alleged offences
According to the police, the man will be charged for allegedly failing to comply with the police's order to not access his OnlyFans account.
If found guilty of the offence, this carries a fine not exceeding S$5,000, an imprisonment term not exceeding six months, or both.
The man will also be charged for two offences for allegedly transmitting obscene material electronically via two OnlyFans accounts.
If convicted, this carries an imprisonment term of up to three months, a fine, or both.
The police reminded the public it is illegal to to transmit any obscene materials by electronic means.
It is also illegal to take part in or receive profits from any business where obscene materials are transmitted by electronic means or advertise the sale of obscene materials.
