Escort and masseuse blackmail are on the rise. Those who have had steady companionship are the most vulnerable. The virus and lock-down have hit those in the industry hard financially. Some are resorting to blackmail.
The problem with escort relationships is victims tend to use their real mobile number or email address, which can easily identify them. During encounters, some share personal information. They discuss work, home, and other data. Married men will be discreet about encounters, assuring family, friends, and employers never discover, but not shield their privacy from an escort or masseuse.
Escort blackmail occurs in three ways. Some have a sideline in blackmail, where they extract personal information from the internet and databases. If you paid via a credit card or cash app, it is a footprint. I have seen situations where sex workers have secretly taken photos of victims.
Criminals post escort and masseuse ads specifically for blackmail purposes. When you show up to do the deed, there is a camera in the room. If you arrived by car, a spotter obtains your license plate. By the time you leave, they have a dossier on you. Later that day, the demand for money begins. Some crews have you drop off the cash. Others demand Western Union payments and tell you to take a photo of the receipt, displaying your name and address.
Online ads for sex workers are common mediums of victimization. The idea is you text to inquire, and the conversation turns sexual. You are asked about your desires, one or two girls, and any deep dark fantasies. Again, the person you are texting is extracting information about you based on your mobile phone. They will use an online database that lists a boatload of private information.
Texting never leads to an appointment, so a second number will contact you, claiming you wasted the girl's time, and you need to pay. Most ignore the threat, utilize photos of dead bodies, and chopped human parts fill their inbox. The kicker is, they know your name and home address. They claim they are part of a cartel and will go to your home and hack you to pieces if you do not pay.
The concern is each of these blackmailers knows your name, address, and possibly more. The tactic is to manipulate them into believing they have the wrong information, which I accomplish through disinformation. If you need help with escort blackmail, I work with you from beginning to end, and get you out and protect from future extortion. Remember, combating blackmail is about protecting your identity, preventing exposure, and ridding yourself of the blackmailer.
What's happening is many sex workers are not making money. Someone who made a few hundred a day in cash makes nothing in lock-down. The continuing issue of the virus has made their situation dire. It is unfortunate and many times a desperate act. Either way, it does not justify committing blackmail.
