We have heard from a few men who inform us to be wary of ads posted on Craigslist's forums for casual sex.One man sent us a link to this listing, saying that he was targeted for sextortion after trading photos with the person who posted: A TDS Reader contacted us on November 20, 2017 to report that the sextortionists targeted him, though it wasn't on Facebook: "I met an id on a free chatting site.
Would you have done that to keep the embarrassing video from being posted and shown to all your friends, family and co-workers? I told him I had no more money and wasn't going to pay him anything else, hoping he was bluffing.

The victim was told to purchase a moneygram and send it to someone named "Marvin Samsang" in the Philippines.I blocked the Michela Duran account and changed my settings so only I can see my profile. This 25-year old's cavalier attitude is the best card to play against these scammers.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.
