Blackmail that happens online is known as sextortion or online blackmail, which occurs when a victim meets a person on the internet, or on a dating or sex app. The action then moves to a platform where a face-to-face video is possible. Or the victim sends photos or videos themselves directly to the decoy. Either way, while chatting or indulging, the blackmailer is gathering personal information to use as leverage.
Most assume men are the only victims of blackmail; this is untrue. Many women fall prey because of a relationship with an online romance scammer. After the scammer has bled the victim dry of their savings, they pull one more punch and threaten to expose their private photos.
Offline blackmail happens in a variety of ways: sugar daddy relationships that have ended — connecting with an escort who had access to your personal information or has secretly taken photos. Sometimes, personal relationships go wrong, and revenge porn or shaming occurs.
The dangers of offline blackmailers are these are people who have been in your life physically. They have had access, there might be more secrets, like compromising information that they can divulge. They can even turn into stalkers who refuse to back off or predators who keep turning up in your life.
The automatic when it comes to blackmailing is what do they know and how do you protect yourself and loved ones. Think about everything, does the blackmailer know your family, friends, employment, social sites, mobile, and email address. Some sextortionist extract database reports on victims. Whatever they know is a useful tool and a potential point of contact for blackmailing. Unfortunately, if they cannot contact you, they will reach out to those in your circle. The strategy is to protect the circle.
Blackmail and sextortion do not go away; action must occur to protect all. Such as creating disinformation for the extortionist to follow. Hence give them false online information to follow. Therefore, when they resurface in two or three months, and they will. The internet is filled with bogus data that protects you and those you love.
From the perspective of the blackmailer, you are in the hunt, their prey. If you pay them, it will never end, you must fight back; however, there is a right way and a wrong of going to war. I offer two services I consult on how to rid yourself of the blackmailer for short-term protection. For long-term protection, I create disinformation to combat against contact and potential exposure. There is no doubt that I can help with blackmail and extortion.

Shut down or turn all of your social media private. If the blackmailer is on your social sites, block and report them.
Have you chatted on your mobile, SMS text, email, Whatsapp, or similar? Delete select apps.
Did the blackmailer disclose your home address and family members? They might have your database report.
The police will tell you to block the blackmailer, plus your report could become public record.
Your lawyer will suggest a cease & desist letter. Do you believe a blackmailer in a foreign country who committed felony fears such a message?
Cyber companies claim they can track the blackmailer, who knows if that is true. Locating a blackmailer does not stop blackmail.
