Being Blackmailed for Money on Facebook? Here's What to Do

Dennis Faas's picture

Infopackets Reader Peter T. writes:

" Dear Dennis,

I have a friend who recently met someone on Facebook. For sake of argument I'll refer to my friend as Bob and his romantic interest as Tina. Bob says he received a friend request from Tina two days ago and after only 10 minutes of text messaging, things started getting hot and heavy. Tina then asked Bob to go into a video chat; as soon as he entered, Tina was already naked and playing with herself. During the chat, she stopped to message him a few times, though never spoke any words. Each time, she asked Bob to reciprocate by showing his privates, including his face.

In a moment of weakness, Bob agreed - and that's when the video chat stopped abruptly. Tina then demanded that Bob send her $15,000 using either World Remit / CashApp / Ria / MoneyGram / Western Union, etc. Bob says he's managed to get the price lowered to $300 - which he's already paid - but now Tina is asking for more or the blackmail video will go live. So far, he's sent the money to Ivory Coast, Africa. In an unrelated note, Bob says he's also sent money to another lady in the Philippines.

Tina has already added all of Bob's family and friends into a group chat on Facebook and is now threatening to release the sextortion blackmail video - as proof, she's sent him pictures of the group chat, even though Bob took his account offline. She says that if he doesn't send $2,000 by tomorrow, she's going to upload it to Youtube as well. I've been subscribed to your website now for over 10 years and I know you are the man when it comes to dealing with online scams. Can you PLEASE HELP? "

The Anatomy of a Sextortion Scam (Facebook, Instagram, etc)

This scam has many names, including: "sextortion", "Facebook blackmail scam", "Instagram sextortion", "Google hangouts blackmail scam" or "online romance scam", etc.

This sextortion scam can happen literally anywhere online - whether it's a dating website, chat site, chat app, game site or game app, or through Facebook or Instagram directly. They all have one thing in common: the threats almost always involve exposing the sextortion victim through friends / family - usually through Facebook or Instagram. That's because almost everyone on Earth has a Facebook account (and fewer with an Instagram account).

Here's how the scam works:

The Male Version of the Sextortion Scam

Once a friend request is received from beautiful woman, the communication begins. The chat usually begins innocently, but quickly turns sexual. The sextortion scammers usually offer to send fake pics of "themselves" scantly dressed, then ask for reciprocation and/or lead the victim into video chat. Once in chat, the victim is secretly recorded in an act.

While this is happening, the scammers download all the information on the victim - usually almost always on Facebook or Instagram.

They do this for two reasons:

  1. the typical response from the sextortion victim is to block the scammer and/or close all social media, but this is in vain (see #2 below)
     
  2. the scammers use the offline copy of the victim's account to contact friends and family directly in order to make additional threats; blackmailers then use this information to follow through with their threats [pic].

The Female Version of the Sextortion Scam

The female version is long and drawn out because women don't typically jump into phone sex and/or send nude pictures immediately (like the men do).

Oftentimes scammers will pretend that they are in the army, navy, a rock star, a bitcoin investor, etc. Oftentimes the fake profile has a very masculine career choice.

In many cases I've worked on, women get scammed twice over. Oftentimes, women end up sending tens of thousands of dollars either through an investment scam or because they believe the scammer is real and needs financial help. This usually happens over a long period of time (1+ month).

After the money has been sent, trust has been established and now the relationship turns sexual, whereby the victim exposes herself. As with the male version of this scam, the blackmailers have already downloaded all of their personal information off of Facebook or Instragram (in most cases). The scammers then hold the videos and/or pictures as ransom and request the victim keep sending money, otherwise she will be exposed to family and friends.

--

In either case, once the sextortion scammers 'have the goods', they demand payment immediately. Oftentimes, scammers request cash in large amounts. Victims usually downplay the amount and negotiate. In the male version of the scam: the scammers use negotiations as a way to 'feel out' the victim in order to determine if they have any cash at all.

Proving the Threats Are Real

To prove the threats are real, scammers will send pictures of the victim's friends / family / followers on Facebook or Instagram, and sometimes websites associated with the victim's workplace.

Oftentimes, the scammers will threaten to post the victim's raw video on Youtube, stating that it's in "private mode", but will go "public" unless money has been paid.

Another very famous tactic is to post a snippet of the victim's picture on a fake sextortion poster [pic] that that claims the victim is a pedophile, with threats to spread it around the Internet.

At this point, the victims usually pays up - the same day or next day by way of wire transfer (MoneyGram, Western Union), online cash services (CashApp, Remitly, Ria, World Remit, etc) or by gift card payment.

--

Once the sextortion scammers receive the funds, they will never stop asking for more - no matter how money much you pay! That's how this scam goes 100% of the time. Don't be fooled into thinking a one-time payment will be the end - IT NEVER IS!

--

If the scammers don't get what they want, they will continue threatening the victim. The threats can be severe and are used as psychological warfare.

Part of the game is to keep the victim in chat for as long as possible in order to mentally run them down, and/or make the victim check in every day (usually in the morning) to ensure they haven't run away and to ensure payment will be sent at a later date.

If payment is not received (usually by the second week) then sextortion scammers will increase the threats and/or follow through by contacting the victim's friends / family / followers.

Therefore, it is recommended to have your case mitigated as soon as possible (contact me here).

Other ways victims fall for this scam include:

  • Direct SMS texting (regular phone texting) from the 'wrong number'
  • Online dating sites (Facebook Dating, Adult Friend Finder, Ashley Madison, Match.com, etc)
  • Adult-oriented websites (anything that is raunchy)
  • Game sites and app games (Fortnite, Words with Friends, etc)
  • Casual Chat websites and apps (Omegle, Whisper, Kik, Whatsapp, Google Hangouts, etc)
  • Other social parts of the web (Discord, web forums, etc)

FAQ: Will the scammers go away if I shut down my Facebook / Instagram, etc?

Absolutely not - in fact, the scammers are betting on the fact that you will do this.

Closing your social media accounts is a bad idea for two reasons.

Here's why -

1. As soon as you start communicating with the scammers - whether it's on Facebook, Instagram, Tiktok, Words with Friends, Ashley Madison, etc - they will download all of your information from Facebook / Instagram for offline purposes.

In other words: if you close your social media accounts, it won't matter because they already have a copy. When they have this information, they are able to contact your friends and family directly, even if your account is offline - here's proof of what I just said [pic].

Almost everyone has a Facebook account and the scammers know this. As I've already mentioned, 99% of the time, the scam revolves around either Facebook or Instagram. In the rare occasion that you don't own a Facebook or Instagram account, the sextortion scammers will look you up online Google, LinkedIn, etc and dig for information based on your family or workplace and/or retrieve this information from your previous chats with them.

2. If you close your accounts, it tells the scammers that you're scared. If they know you're scared, they're going to threaten you 10x more.

Eventually you will want to close your accounts: but only after you have your case mitigated. Contact me here to get your case started. The only reason I suggest closing your accounts is in case you are exposed: you don't want people looking you up online.

FAQ: What happens if I block the sextortion scammers?

The threats will escalate at an exponential rate and your chances of being exposed will also exponentially increase.

If you block them straight away, they might disappear for a new days - but they always come back.

Sometimes they will wait 2-3 days before contacting you again. This happens quite a bit.

I suspect this is the case because they are busy scamming people all day long; when you don't produce any money, they move onto the next victim that is producing. But fear not: your name will definitely go into a queue and they will start re-working their "lost leads", like any legitimate business would.

If they can't get a hold of you, they will start looking up contacts on Facebook or Instagram, then reach out to friends and family. It's all part of the Facebook blackmail [pic] scam.

If you don't have a Facebook account and they have your phone number, they'll do a reverse lookup on your phone number, find out where you live, and search for relatives on Facebook and/or use the yellow pages.

When they reach out to friends and family, they will say something like: "Joe needs to get a hold of me as soon as possible, otherwise there will be consequences," and will include a head shot from the video you were secretly recorded in (or picture the pictures you sent). Friends and family will then get back to you asking "What does this mean?" and forward the head shot. At this point you'll realize the threats are real.

Sometimes they'll contact friends and family with another threat, such as claiming that you enjoy little kids [pic] and they have a video to prove it.

In more severe cases, they will expose you straight away by uploading your video or pictures to friends and family directly through Facebook or Instagram (usually), though sometimes they will upload your video to Youtube within the 1-2 week mark if they can't extort you for money.

Don't want to take that risk? Contact me straight away and get your case mitigated within 1-3 days. Consultation with me is FREE - whether by email, phone, or webcam. I have a solid plan and I've worked on hundreds of cases already. I also have real verifiable credentials.

FAQ: Do blackmailers follow through with their threats?

Yes, absolutely! It happens quite often, and you have a 50-50 chance of being exposed.

If you are exposed, it usually happens either:

a) when the scammers haven't collected any money from you - usually around the 1-2 weeks mark from when they first contacted you, or

b) towards the end of the scam when you run out of money and stop meeting their demands.

Here's why -

Based on my experience, scammers either throw your name into a pool of victims and work you at random - or your name goes down an assembly line and eventually reaches the final destination in which case you're going to get exposed, regardless. One day you'll be dealing with a nice scammer, and the next day you'll be dealing with someone that gets his jollies exposing victims.

I know this for a fact because I've studied the chats that people have with the scammers. In one case, the scammer was talking English. The next day he was speaking Afrikaans, then back to English. In another case, the scammers spoke to the victim on Facebook Messenger, then moved to Google Hangouts. At the very beginning of the conversation, it said in French that "The chat has now moved to Google Hangouts," and then back to English.

If victims were dealing with the same scammer repeatedly, this simply would not happen. This also explains why some victims get exposed seemingly at random, while others do not. Like I said, it's a 50-50 chance of you being exposed. It depends on who you're talking to in addition to your circumstances.

FAQ: Will the FBI help me? I reported the scammers via the IC3 website.

No, the FBI will not help you.

Here's why -

Unless you've been scammed for millions of dollars and have indicated such in your report, you will not receive a phone call from the FBI. Make no mistake: this sextortion scam is on a very large scale with possibly millions of people already scammed. In fact, most victims lose hundreds or even thousands of dollars straight away, only to find out that they keep asking for more.

Even so, the FBI IC3 website receives thousands - and perhaps tens of thousands - of complaints daily and no human being is going to filter through all the reports in order to contact you. They are simply too busy with other major Internet crimes.

About the only thing good about submitting a complaint through IC3's website are the annual reports produced each year which highlight Internet crimes by age, demographic, etc.

FAQ: I'm scared. Should I call the police?

If it was this easy, you wouldn't be reading this right now.

Based on many, many testimonials I've heard, the police always recommend shutting down your social media accounts and blocking the scammers. Unfortunately, this isn't going to work.

Here's why -

The scammers are counting on the fact that you're going to block them and shut down your accounts - because that's what a lot of victims do - and they are fully prepared to deal with this scenario.

The fact is: if they can't get a hold of you, they are going to start reaching out to your friends and family [pic] with a headshot from your video or pictures that they have on you, and demand that you contact them. Friends and family are going to contact you with this information and you're going to realize they aren't messing around. If you wait too long, they are going to expose you.

How do I know? Because it's happened countless times already.

Don't want to take that risk? Contact me straight away and get your case mitigated within 1-3 days. Consultation with me is FREE - whether by email, phone, or webcam. I have a solid plan and I've worked on hundreds of cases already. I also have real verifiable credentials.

FAQ: Should I hire a lawyer?

Hiring a lawyer is a complete waste of time and money.

Here's why -

As I've mentioned already: in 99% of all cases I've worked on the scammers are either in Ivory Coast Africa [pic], or they are in the Philippines. I know for a fact that there is a Lawyer on Google that is currently advertising his services for an eye-watering $3,000. For that amount of money, all you get is a cease and desist order.

Question: what do you think is going to happen after you hand over a cease and desist order to a scammer in another country?

Answer: you're going to piss off the scammers and they are going to expose you immediately, or they are going to laugh in your face (but most likely the former). Why? Because the sextortion scammers are in another country and are operating with practical impunity (remember: they're most likely using a VPN to hide their online activity, as I mentioned already).

Furthermore: places like Ivory Coast Africa are currently being overrun by ISIS - they don't exactly operate by law, anyhow - so what good is a lawyer? Besides that, the sextortion scammers have already downloaded all of your contacts off of Facebook or Instagram the very moment you started communicating with them - and yes, blackmailers do follow through with their threats [pic]. They do this as a contingency plan, and can expose you at any moment.

Don't want to take that risk? Contact me straight away and get your case mitigated within 1-3 days. Consultation with me is FREE - whether by email, phone, or webcam. I have a solid plan and I've worked on hundreds of cases already. I also have real verifiable credentials.

FAQ: Can you track down the scammers and delete my picture and/or video?

Absolutely NO! NO! NO!

Let me be very clear:

--

Anyone that claims they can track down the scammers and bring them to justice and/or delete your secretly recorded raunchy video or picture(s) is lying.

--

READ CAREFULLY:

There is currently a fraudulent company based in the United States that is advertising sextortion mitigation. I won't mention their names - yes, names is plural - but I will say this: this same fake company owns 4 different websites (they all look very similar), goes by 4 different names, and has 3 different 1-800 numbers for you to call, ready to take your hard-earned cash.

Question: What legitimate company goes by 4 different names and has 3 different 1-800 phone numbers?

Answer: None!

The same fake company claims to have "direct access to overseas law enforcements" and/or "direct access to FBI" and can "hunt down the cyber criminals and bring them to justice." And, depending on which fake representative you're speaking with and whether or not you want their fake premium 3-day package that retails for a whopping $20,000 - it may be more or less, depending on who you're talking to - they also claim to have access to "dark web hackers" and can go in and delete your video or pictures on the scammer's PC.

This same fake company claims the investigation is going to take a whopping 30 days.

30 days to investigate what exactly, I'm not sure. But it sounds impressive!

You'll know you're dealing with this fake company because they typically charge $1500 up front to "monitor your account", in which case they do absolutely nothing but take your money. Here, they're betting on the fact that the scammers are magically going to go away on their own after the fake investigators "take control" of your online social media accounts.

In the mean time, you'll continue to receive threats from scammers. Once the fake monitoring is complete, they'll try to convince you to move to the fake "stage 2" plan, where it's going to cost you $4500 dollars (or more, depending on which fake representative you're speaking with), whereby they promise to do some more fake investigating and somehow make your problem go away without any effort on their part. For $6,000 (or more) in total, you'll get a document that says that they weren't able to produce anything meaningful. If you carefully read their contract, it says that there are NO GUARANTEES and that there are NO REFUNDS. It's all smoke and mirrors.

UNFORTUNATELY, THIS IS A COMPLETE SHAM.

Here's why -

First of all: in 99% of all cases I've worked on, the scammers are located in either Ivory Coast Africa or the Philippines. How do I know all of this? Because that's where victims send the money [pic].

There is no fake costly investigation necessary to determine this fact: I'm providing it free of charge!

(Most people reading this already know this is true because they've already fired money off to either location).

For the record: here's a picture showing a Facebook sextortion scammer providing wire info to a victim.

Besides that, let me bring up an important point: DOES IT REALLY MATTER WHERE THE SCAMMERS ARE LOCATED? No, it does not. What matters is that you take action right now, or your chances of being exposed are going to increase exponentially every minute that passes. The scammers are only going to wait so long, and then there's an excellent chance (at least 50-50!) they will end up exposing you.

Don't want to take that risk? Contact me straight away and get your case mitigated within 1-3 days. Consultation with me is FREE - whether by email, phone, or webcam. I have a solid plan and I've worked on hundreds of cases already. I also have real verifiable credentials.

Furthermore, most scammers are using a VPN (virtual private network) to hide their online activity - that's how VPNs work. They do this because they don't want to be found with a hard drive full of extortion videos for fear that they will be arrested by their local police and spend the rest of their lives behind bars.

Based on this fact, you can't easily track down the sextortion cyber criminals, especially if they are overseas. Even if you could, there would be time to get the law involved, and that's only if the scammer is still sitting at the cyber cafe waiting for you to arrest him.

Sorry - but that isn't going to happen!

It's also not possible to magically leap into someone's PC and start deleting pictures and videos - especially if you don't have their IP address to begin with (remember: the scammers are most likely using a VPN!). Another reason this can't happen is because the firewall on the scammer's PC and/or phone would prevent the infiltration. Even if that were not the case, the cyber criminals would also need to have remote access enabled on their PC/phone in order to allow a connection and/or use an incredibly outdated operating system with a bug that allowed for a remote connection exploit to happen - similar to this one. This simply isn't likely - in fact, it's practically impossible!

Believe me when I say: if it was as easy as calling a fake 1-800 to get a hold of a "sextortion expert" so that he can call a "dark web hacker" to delete all your info, then the world would be upside down - for the same reason it would no longer be safe to do online banking.

Think about it!

If you want 100% truth and transparency, I suggest you contact me straight away and get your case mitigated within 1-3 days. Consultation with me is FREE - whether by email, phone, or webcam. 100% no bullshit guarantee: complete transparency and solid advice that actually works. I promise!

FAQ: I'm interested in hiring you. How do I know you won't scam me?

I get asked this question a lot, understandably.

Here's a bit of background on me: I am a senior systems administrator, IT technical analyst, computer programmer and publisher. I have nearly 40 years of computing experience, 20 years in IT, and hold a degree in Computer Science from the University of Windsor, Ontario, Canada. I have owned and operated this website for over 20 years, published over 2,000 articles online, published 6 books, and I have helped thousands of people through email, by phone, and by remote desktop support.

Aside from publishing tech-related articles and providing tech support by phone and over the Internet to businesses and end users around the world, I have been dealing with online scams (mostly romance scams and tech support scams) now for 7 years and know them inside and out.

With that said, there are lots of ways to prove I'm legit:

For most folks, that should be enough. If you're already sold, contact me here.

Was to reach out to Dennis. After getting jammed by scammers on Instagram and WhatsApp I reached out to Dennis.

He got back to me within an hour. He laid out the plan very clearly and concisely. His 5 step plan is easy to follow and works like a charm.

Don’t make the mistake of not reaching out and don’t fall for other services who were very slow in returning calls and quoted much higher costs.

The best news of all is the threats have stopped!

I was scammed on Facebook. I emailed Dennis that night. Talked to him the next day on phone, hired him later that day.
Dennis's system is very well laid out and it works. He has thought of all angles to mitigate the situation and cover all bases
He is always quick to respond to a message or email.
When scammers posted a video online, Dennis had it taken down almost immediately.
He is very knowledgeable and is good at what he does.
Im glad i hired him. I would strongly recommend him if you are ever in this situation.

Dennis was a nonjudgmental. truthful. Understanding and capable help in a very difficult experience. He always responds quickly to your questions and gives you the right answers. He gives you a plan of action that you need immediately. He is helpful all along the way.

I am still in the beginning of the sextortion, where scammers started contacting me around 48 hours ago.
6 hours after the scammers asked for money, I found Dennis page and contacted him by leaving a message on this website. Less than an hour after my initial request, I had a video call with Dennis and we agreed to move ahead. That was around midnight his time, 8 am my time.
Over the video, and then audio call, he explained the next steps and followed it up with detailed emails on what to do. I read, and re-read these emails, and I am trying to follow them to the letter.
I am still in the beginning of the scam. I admit I am still panicking of what the scammers would do next, but we are sticking Dennis plan that is working well so far.

I came across Dennis's profile from an internet blog. I was at the beginning stages of a sextortion scam wherein I was asked to pay 1200 USD. Dennis was extremely fast in responding to my email and the first thing he said was to NOT SEND ANY MONEY!! So I did it as I was in the middle of my transaction. He then explained me the entire process and send me the detailed emails which provided me a much needed relief knowing that there is a way out of this. I followed every instruction carefully and as I am writing this about a month later, I still do get threat texts once or twice a week but its ultimately a waiting game! Personally it gives me tremendous relief knowing that I can reach out to someone reliable if things go south. I would strongly recommend his service. You won't regret it! But just a word of advice, don't be stupid and be smart about your carnal urges in order to not fall in these scams in the first place!! I have learned my lesson the hard way. Anyways, I would very strongly recommend his service any day!

Dennis is literally the calm in middle of a storm. He helps you take control of the situation and calms you so you can deal with the situation rationally without letting the scammers get into your head and play mental games on you. He provides clear guidance on how to deal with the situation and is very upfront about the process, the risks and the potential outcomes. The most important part to me was how how holds your hand and helps you get through the situation. If you ever get stuck in a terrible situation where you require Dennis' services, he is the first (and last) person you should reach out to. I called one other company and they were reading off a script telling me that it takes them one week to review my case and if I want an expedited process its 3x the price. I realized right away that they were trying to extort me when I was a weak point. Dennis was exactly the opposite. Very helpful answered all of my questions and is really nice.

Thank you Dennis for all of your help.

Dennis is not B.S. I called the company with the 3 different 1-800 numbers. Exactly as Dennis described in the article. Listen, if you make a mistake call him! It's a free consult and there's no pressure tactics. With the other "sextortion mitigation experts", I felt like I was getting scammed harder by them than the actual sextortion scammers. Seriously, just call Dennis. Money well spent.

s10's picture

I was getting very difficult messages where the scammer was asking for money and was not willing to negotiate. Dennis helped me with a plan that allowed me to get out of the volatile situation which also calmed me down. I'm really thankful to him. I also saw one of his screenshots where he is helping a lot of people to escape from the scammers. Call him and he will be there for you.

Dennis was calm, professional, and able to help me through a very stressful situation over a tight time frame. Talked me through the steps I needed to tire out the scammers and ensure my friends and family did not view the intended blackmail material. Worth every penny. 10/10 is an understatement.

Dennis was a God send. After talking to the 1-800 guys (after about 8 phone tags over 4 days) I was near the end of my rope mentally and emotionally. I stumbled upon Dennis at my lowest point. He responded literally within 15 minutes. and he has reaponded very quickly every time since. I had a comprehensive consult with Dennis and right away I knew I needed him on my side. His combination of calm, compassion, and honesty was exactly what i needed.

But that's the emotional side. The intellectual side of me wanted a plan of action that didn't involve secret agents infiltrating safe houses in Morroco or waiting for a plan to emerge 30 days later. His plan was crystal clear to me.... very understandable and I feel good about the chances for success. I am in the middle of the scam now...I went alone and survived the first 4-5 days (with some limited help from another person). I wish I had gone to Dennis sooner but I feel good about the pending outcomes with him on my side. His fee is reasonable and has great value. He makes it clear he will not nickle and dime you. These are cyber crimes with a twist...I needed a tech expert that understands how the sextortion game is played and can serve as a calming, supportive force. Thats a rare combination but it is how I view Dennis...and that impression is readily apparent after only 24 hours! We all make mistakes. Dennis can help mitigate the mistakes. Look no further!
