I did some modifications to my FB and got the videos they posted on my comments deleted, reported the account to Facebook, and nothing ever changed for me. It is work and time for them to go after you but by showing no anxiety and giving them no leverage to hold against you, you are able to diffuse a really nasty situation.Others have completely freaked out and gone through hell, even if they didn't pay the scammers.
I tried to be polite, in case it was an innocent inquiry, but then it turned sexual and that's when I knew it was bullsh*t.
"She" tried video calling me and at first I was just going to block her but my roommate convinced me to answer out of curiosity.
And if you did respond to this blackmail and send money, what would you expect to happen next? Read what the Reddit user described after he paid the blackmailer $1500… Now we have to do your Facebook contacts and pictures! Well, the following morning, he creates a fake Facebook profile with my name and picture and friend requested my boss, parents, WIFE, some other close friends, past clients, etc.
A few of them accepted thinking it was me, AND HE SENT THE F###ING PHOTOS!
I covered the camera and was greeted with a video of a naked female who did not match up with the profile's pictures.
