IF they do post this video (if it really exists, as some just simply say a video exists and others do not post if their victim simply ignores them or refuses to pay), it may be highly embarrassing, but if you pay, then they will come back for more and more.
Further to my answer, please read the link below to reassure yourself this is not an isolated incident and the further lengths these people will go to: I say, do not be fooled into paying any money to these scammers. Here is what happened.1) I took your advice plus other advice which I found on the net and did not make any attempt to pay them.2) I blocked them from my contact lists (Facebook I did whilst still chatting with them) and then deleted my Windows live Messenger account3) I deactivated my Facebook page and posted a message to my friends indicating that someone what hacked my account and was sending me spam and that I would be away for some time.
I don't want them to do the same thing to other people.
Hi there is someone who is trying to blackmail me for money because of a sex act on webcam. Hi thanks for your question, I will try to assist you with this.
Do you know the person threatening to do this personally or did you meet online? They gave me account détails to make the transfer to them. Your further detailed advice is highly appreciated and urgently.
Regards Anthony Hi Anthony Unfortunately this is a particular nasty scam and has had devastating consequences for the party on the receiving end (indeed there has been reports of victims committing suicide as a result).
I will probably have to deactivate my email account for sometime. I would recommend you inform the police however as if people do not report these issues then they will continue.
