How do perpetrators sextort men?
While women’s grooming tends to go longer with sextortion strategies targeting women, there is typically little or no
grooming period for men.
Selected men are approached on mainstream social media dating or sexual related sites. Scammers will entice male victims with photos or friendly attrative wome , quickly moving to exploit the target.
Typically a money demand is made within a few hours to a couple of days. The perpetrator generally has downloaded the victim’s contacts and threatens to send out intimate material to friends, family and work contacts unless funds are paid by a speciﬁc deadline.
