MALE / female

have been targeted more by sextorition scams?

guess

The criminals behind these attacks do not know if you have a webcam, or know if you've visited adult websites. They are attempting to scare their victims into paying a ransom, and will send millions of emails in the hope that someone will pay. They'll often include technical sounding details to make the email sound convincing. It may also include a password the victim uses or has used.

Sextortion is an example of a phishing attack, where victims receive emails that try and trick them into doing the wrong thing.

Sextortion Email sent to victims with Password Information of that victim which will have been obtained from paste bins / Dark Web etc., – This is done in an attempt to make the scam look legitimate and trick the victim into believing that they have actually been videoed through the webcam – Demand for payment, usually in Bitcoin.

They will threaten to share images / videos with them unless payment is made

images / Videos are normally shared, first by suspect and then they request victim to replicate – Once this is done this is where the threat / demand is made – Suspect at this stage has already performed Open Source Research on the victim and identified a list of friends / family.

Suspect will engage the victim on dating site / Social media site, then move the chat / interaction onto another platform (Kik / Whatsapp / Messenger) this is where the conversation turns sexual.
