Sextortion: How To Deal With This Growing Crime

You meet someone online and start talking. It turns flirty, then sexy, and then … boom. 

Suddenly that person you thought you were having fun with says she recorded your video chat, and says she is going to share it with your family, friends and boss. The only way to stop her, she says, is to pay her money. Lots of money. 

It’s called sextortion, and it is one of the fastest growing crimes on the internet. Thousands of Americans fall victim to this crime every year, and that number is growing.  

Typically, there is a gang of people behind the person you flirted with, and soon your phone is blowing up with threats and demands. The pressure to pay is constant. 

The last thing you should do is pay them, because that only tells them you have money and you want this to go away. As soon as you send them money, they will just ask you for more. And more. And more. 

So, what should you do? The situation is not hopeless. Watch the video above and listen to our experts explaining the best options you have for dealing with this situation.
