It contained 141 subfolders, which corresponded to an equal number of women. 1,500 files were stored in them. The first evidence pointed to a case of revenge pornography. Each of the 141 subfolders was allegedly named after the profile name each victim used on social media accounts such as Instagram. Some of these names corresponded to nicknames, but some were real names. The first identifications of women showed that they are indeed in Achaia.
