SEXTORTION, WEBCAM BLACKMAIL
Sextortion is a threat to visitors to Thailand. Using Thailand sex chat rooms or social media apps is a significant risk. Most cyber-criminals use sex-based social media apps. So, the most frequent Sextortion we see is sexual exploitation via social media. Explicit texts, or video, for instance. Sextortion employs webcam blackmail and coercion to extort money from the victim. The term Sextortion refers to sexual exploitation while threatening to send the compromising material to friends, family, and coworkers is the main objective.
It involves webcams and online video sex chat rooms. Recorded video sex during encounters with prostitutes is frequent. Thai bar girls and Pattaya freelance prostitutes also use the scam. There are several methods used in Sextortion.
Sextortion – Social media sexting
Social media and text message applications are the primary sources of sexual material. Sextortion criminals threaten to send these texts to family and coworkers. For instance, nude images or video of the victim with prostitutes. In some cases, Thai bar girls and Thailand freelance prostitutes. Also, the media shared through “sexting” or sexual conduct online is used.
Webcams are the primary method of blackmail, especially for those using webcams for online sex chat rooms. It usually involves a Sextortion criminal posing as someone else — for example, an attractive young female initiating communication of a sexual nature with the victim. The Sextortionist uses a recorded video performance from a cybersex website. The criminal will text the victim at points in the video where the performer appears to be typing. It deceives the victim and creates an illusion. So, it looks like the performer in the video is messaging the victim. However, it is someone setting them up for blackmail. So, it is a very crafty method of collecting explicit material to blackmail the victim.
Sextortion – Explicit material
Here is a typical scenario. The victim gets naked in front of a webcam or mobile phone app. The victim then engages in sexual behaviour such as masturbation at the request of the scammer. The Sextortion criminal records the exchange. The criminal then reveals the real intent. They demand money or other forms of payment. If the material is damaging enough, the victim will pay. However, it depends on how financially able the victim is. In most cases, the price to buy off the criminal can be high.
Demands for payment
Demands for payment can be $1000 to $10,000. The cyber-criminals threaten to send the videos to friends or family unless they pay. Police recommend that victims refuse to pay. Many times the blackmailers are bluffing and have no damaging material. But, most of the time, the evidence does exist. This evidence puts the victim in a complicated situation.
Don’t pay! Contact us instead. We know how to deal with these people and stop the harassment. Many victims who pay get more demands for more money. In some cases, the scammers post the explicit videos anyway. If you already paid, make a note of where the money was collected. Cancel the payment, if possible. The sooner you do that, the better.
The best way to avoid Sextortion is never to compromise yourself. These days, it is easy to blackmail someone with social media because so many people use it daily. Therefore, it is a perfect resource for Sextortion criminals to find victims. Most Sextortion criminals know their victims won’t involve the police, as this may make matters even worse. So, they can exploit the victim with a low risk of being caught.
Video Sex Blackmail
Our advice? Never do anything online that you don’t want anyone else to see. It’s that simple. Because if you do, you’re just asking for trouble. If denied payment, the Sextortion criminal can release the explicit content publicly. Sexually explicit videos and sex chats may go to family members, friends, and business associates. Threats to make false allegations of paedophilia against the victim are possible. An increase in webcam blackmail cases (Sextortion) has been reported more and more over recent years. Sextortion affects both young and old, male and female also.
In extreme cases, Sextortion, or webcam blackmail may cause severe humiliation. Some victims have taken their own lives. So, it is a critical issue. The sexually explicit material can cause tremendous damage to the victim. For example, if releasing the content publicly or to friends and family. It can result in a severe backlash.
In most cases, criminals will usually identify the victim’s social media presence first. They ask the victim to add them as friends or contacts. The next step is collecting contact information for friends, family, and business associates. Also, they will ask the victims friends to add them. The cyber-criminal then threatens to release sexual content. Overall, the goal is to extort money from the victim.
They demand payment in cash via bank transfer, Western Union, or Bitcoin within 48 hours. Otherwise, they release sexually explicit content.
