The one I found most damning was not someone who made a claim against Jackson to extort money from him, it was the (now) adult person I saw interviewed a few years back on television. He was an English bloke who related how he met Jackson at a concert when he was about twelve and how he subsequently was invited by Jackson to his Neverland ranch. The man in question made no complaint about Jackson's behaviour, but said that claims some newspapers made that mutual masturbation took place between them there were "distorting the facts". It was the way he carefully worded that comment so as not to actually deny it happened that I found so striking and alarming.
The interview ended with the man bemoaning the fact that Jackson had no interest in him now he was an adult, but that seemed to be his only axe to grind about the star.
I can provide no names or dates for verification I'm afraid , but I'm certain this story can be read online somewhere else; especially now Jackson is dead.
