Dating and webcam scams
Sextortion occurs when someone threatens to distribute your private and sensitive material if you don’t provide them with images of a sexual nature, sexual favors, or money.
According to the FBI, here are some things you can do to avoid becoming a victim: -Never send compromising images of yourself to anyone, no matter who they are — or who they say they are.
Right after that, my software gathered all your contacts from your Messenger, Facebook account, and email account. (I have an unique pixel within this email message, and right now I know that you have read this email).
If I don’t get the payment, I will send your video to all of your contacts including relatives, coworkers, and so forth.
The real person on the pictures has nothing to do with these scams and is an indirect victim.
Here’s a clever new twist on an old email scam that could serve to make the con far more believable.
The message purports to have been sent from a hacker who’s compromised your computer and used your webcam to record a video of you while you were watching porn.
Same for the names, imagine that a scammer creates a profile on a dating website with your full name.
You would probably face trouble because your name would be associated with a scam.
