Tricked and Blackmailed with an Explicit Video

Updated: Jul 20, 2022

At the end of last year, my divorce was finalized and I thought I would take the plunge and enter the world of social media dating. I’m in my mid-40s and have a successful career but am a bit rusty in forming relationships. A young and very attractive woman sent me a friend request on Instagram about a month ago. I never met her before, but I figured, “you only live once”, when I said “Yes” to her friend request. She said her name was Sara and that she was a senior at a University in Indiana studying Communication and Media Studies. She said that she started college after working for 4 years as a waitress and spending time deciding what she wanted to do with her life. At 26, she was looking for someone who was more established and wasn’t a college boy.

After a couple of days of communicating on Instagram and a few Snapchat pictures exchanged, Sara suggested we move to Whats app or Google Hangouts to communicate, because she thought her Instagram might have been hacked. I never used Whats app before, but set it up on my cell phone because Sara seemed real. Sara started sending me provocative pictures of herself and said she was feeling naughty. I was reassured when her pictures matched her face on all of her Instagram pictures. I couldn’t believe how hot she was, and that this was really happening. She wanted me to send her some of the same kinds of pictures of myself to her, but I hesitated. Sara said that she was going to send me a kiss, and then sent a very explicit video of herself getting naked, and blowing me a kiss on camera. She said it was my turn to send her something. Not thinking with my brain, I sent her a 30 second nude video of myself on my bed, blowing her a kiss back.

Literally five minutes after I sent my sensitive video, she sent the video back to me and said that she needed $2000, or that she was going to send the video to my Instagram followers. She sent a screenshot showing that she was already following the same people that I know on Instagram, which includes my sisters, coworkers, and close friends. My heart started racing and I begged her not to do this. She said that she needed at least $200 by 5PM, otherwise she would send the video to other blackmailers who will expose me and ruin my life. Sara told me to buy two $100 Google Play gift cards, scratch off the back, and send her pictures of the cards. I didn’t know what to do because I was afraid I will be fired from my job if they saw my video. So I sent the gift cards yesterday hoping that this will end. This morning, they asked for another $400 by Friday, when I get paid. I realized that this may never end!

At this point, I was extremely glad that I called Cyber Guardian Security to sign up for their services that stop social media sextortion. Everything was confidential. They completely took over and handled these blackmailers with a comprehensive plan to identify and stop them in their tracks. They provided me with documentation of everything when their investigation was complete. Sara wasn’t even a real person. I am overjoyed to say that the scammers have stopped contacting me because CGS shut them down. Their team of multi-national cybersecurity experts fought for me and let me breathe again. I recommend that you call a Guardian today at (800) 695-5957.
