Sex chat via skype
The Daily Scam is very sad to report a scam that seems to be targeting men on social media like Facebook, but then progressing to the use of Skype for video chatting. She manipulates the victim to include video of his face during their video exchange. Read this post by a Reddit user who was scammed this way and then blackmailed not to post the video of him captured by the scammer… They had one friend in common, and were saying they were in my same industry.
The victim is coaxed into exposing himself during a skype conversation with a newly-friended woman who appears to be interested in video sex.
His point, he says, is that you can never tell if you are being recorded. "I was friend requested by someone named Michela Duran [on Facebook], I accepted, and moments later she sends me messages like "do you like sex baby", and of course I'm a 25 year old man.
Our added point is that it is extremely easy to deceive others online. Shortly after messaging back and forth she convinced me to video chat with her, so I did.
I accepted and no more than , received the first message.
After initial discussion it moved to skype and said she was looking for fun.
All of the sudden, the screen changed to a replay of my image/video being played back to me.
They said 'Hahaha, I now have your naked photo and your Facebook contacts, give me 00 or I send [it] to all your family, friends and coworkers!
The person then sends me the link to my video on Youtube. " UPDATE December 3, 2017: A 21-year old college student was skeptical and cautious enough to dodge this scam... "I was currently reading your "Sextortion Scam Via Facebook." After I was targeted by something very similar, so it's still going on today.
I deactivated my skype and Facebook accounts and removed my other social media so that the person cannot contact me. Meanwhile I talked to my family and told them what happened and they stood rock solid with me. I was randomly friended by a "girl" that had 2 mutual friends with me.
