Maine escort service owner accused of extortion

WINDHAM, Maine — The owner of an escort service in Windham has been indicted on a charge that he tried to extort money from a client. Nicholas Enfanto was indicted on a single federal extortion charge, which was announced Thursday.

Federal authorities say Enfanto sent text messages to a client of his escort service accusing him of contacting escorts directly. Authorities say Enfanto demanded $100,000 and threatened to shoot the man if he did not pay. After initially agreeing to pay $250 a month, the client contacted police.

Enfanto is the owner of Enfanto’s Perfect Pleasure Escort Service. He is a resident of Saugus, Mass., and could not be reached for comment Friday.
