If you haven't heard of the term sextortion, it is basically one of those online scams that gets you naked, take some video and screen shots of you and extort you for money.
I am always very curious about how this kinda thing can happen to people. I mean people are very open minded these days or at least very open looking thanks to how the media has been portraying us but also not open until like that right.
So basically this blog post will share with you some insights of how it usually happens, how you can avoid it and of course the truth that this kinda thing doesn't happen to you. I am always very curious how these kinda thing happen and I am very glad I actually get to experience it first hand!
Step 1: Contact
How do they even contact you? Adding you on Facebook of course!
Question 1 - SURE OR NOT? SUCH A PRETTY GIRL COME AND ADD ME FOR NOTHING? I mean if you are ignorant like me who doesn't know many Taiwan or asian actress etc you might fall for it but ask yourself again, why would a pretty girl like her add you as friend for no reason?
Step 2 - Verification
Tip - Look at her Facebook account. It looks too new to be real. Not much of other friends, no history etc. Highly possible it is fake.
Tip - Check out other profile image to make sure they all look the same.
|Really so hot??|
Apparently this is some Taiwan actress? I still have no idea who but with a name, things get easier.
|Did you see what I saw? That image at the corner. Looks familiar?|
Step 3 - GAME ON!
Not much explanation needed. Screenshots of how I play my cards.
Ignored her after that. Wait another few days.
Didn't entertain her still because 8pm is family time.
So I finally decided to entertain her a little in the office. Really? Added me for more friends? or more cash? Loads of small talks in between which I skip cause there's nothing juicy.
So I initiated the whole image sending things. Just to see how much game she/he have.
For the obvious reason she want to talk about her bed and want me to ask her to take a selfie but I am not falling for that. Why not just show me your apartment?
And I wonder why she must tell me she is alone... Hmmm..
Of course I send you something I already posted on my Instagram. And thanks for your compliment unknown scammer.
And of course she do not want to waste time just being friends anymore. Let's bring our relationship to the next stage. Like let me show you my naked pictures and also tell you my scam name.
Tip - If you wish to scam people. Made fake accounts and all already. WHY CAN'T YOU HAVE A BETTER SKYPE NAME?
Me, playing it cool and thanks for calling me dear.
Me playing all social media guru even to scammer. Always have this heart to teach and share.
Yes yes, I get it. You are alone.You are very shy about watching sponge bob square pants. That is my guilty pleasure too.
Step 4 - Video Time
Oh after almost 90 mins of foreplay. You decide to show me your body. And I went to have dinner and ignored her for awhile and we then brought the game to Skype.
So of course I didn't turn on my cam the 1st time but she/he ain't that stupid too. Cut me off very quickly so in order to prove myself right that this is a sextortion, I up my game and on my cam and show her my handsome face.
Tip - There is an application known as "Fake Webcam" where you can upload a short video and replace your webcam instead of your real webcam. Pretty neat app eh?
So once again with a print screen like this. Time for Google image search.
Of course we ain't gonna just let it stop here. I continued to play along and say some stuff to her/him.
Step 5 - The Showdown - Time to call your bluff
Oh yeah? Just for me? You found the ONE in Singapore on Facebook when you are from Japan. That's cool. So since I already know your game, why not let me call your bluff and see how it goes?
So I managed to convince this person to on the cam together again and she show the EXACT same clip and same part of it. Yawn. I might have small eyes over the cam but I am really not blind.
Yeah, I really don't dare to show you because my anaconda DON'T!
So point to note kids, young man and old at home. Do not fall into such traps. It is almost impossible for you to get a hot chick adding you out of no where. You may have but most of the time those people might be your ex-school mate, bump at event or what not and not just adding "friend" out of no where.
I hope people who are reading this article are reading this because they search before being scammed instead of only reading this after being scammed.
I am sure they uses other videos and images but the game will probably be the same.
You have been warned.
And here's MY ANACONDA MICHIKO!
