Most Instagram users typically don’t expect to become a victim of a serious cybercrime while on the platform, but unfortunately, that is the reality for most social media users. Instagram users are falling victim to a crime known as sextortion and are being blackmailed for their intimate photos and or videos. If you are a victim of blackmail on Instagram read on to find out what blackmail entails and how to report blackmail on Instagram
Before we get into how to report blackmail on Instagram, it’s important to understand what blackmail is. Blackmail is when someone threatens to reveal embarrassing or damaging information about you unless you do what they say.
Online blackmail is a form of extortion and it’s a serious crime. If you’re being blackmailed, it’s important to get help right away.
To avoid becoming a victim it’s beneficial to know how these criminals successfully reel in their victims.
Here are a few examples of what you can expect from a sextortionist on Instagram.
· They disguise themselves behind fake Instagram accounts of attractive men and women.
· They will be very flirtatious and try to manipulate you into sending photos or taking a video call.
· If you refuse to send content or do a video call, they will repeatedly ask and insist that it’s just for fun.
· They will ask to add you on numerous social media platforms and move the conversation to various platforms.
· They will use the information you publicly provide on your profile to relate to you.
Paying a blackmailer does not guarantee that they will leave you alone even if they try to convince you that paying will end the blackmail. In fact, it may only make them more persistent. Once they realize that you are willing to pay them, they will most likely continue to blackmail you for more money.
Not only that, but paying a blackmailer also encourages this type of behavior.
By giving in to their demands, you are telling them that this is an effective way to get what they want. There is also a possibility that your blackmailer will send your content to an accomplice to be saved and used for later. Some sextortionists work in teams or groups that are similar to companies. They have a database that consists of all of their victim’s personal information, which they refer back to when they want more money.
We offer immediate, 24/7 assistance from our team of investigators.
