If you are a victim, or think you are at risk, we’re here to help. Beyond our paid services which we offer to help mitigate the problem, here are some free resources we think can help you.
Also here are a few tips that we reference from this article from Mashable.
“This is often because victims feel ashamed or embarrassed, but of course criminals are relying on that reaction in order to succeed,” NCA’s Roy Sinclar said.
The NCA has shared tips on what to do if you’re being targeted:
Don’t panic. The police will take your case seriously, dealing with it in confidence and without judgement.
Don’t communicate further with the criminals. Take screen shots of all your correspondence. Suspend your Facebook account (don’t delete it) and use the online reporting process to the sites such as Skype and YouTube to have any video blocked. Set up an alert in case the video resurfaces.
Don’t pay. Many victims who have paid continue to get demands for higher amounts of money. In some cases, even when demands have been met, offenders will still go on to post the explicit videos
Preserve evidence. Make a note of all details provided by the offenders and DO NOT DELETE ANY CORRESPONDENCE.
We will continue to add to our library but we hope these give you some peace of mind and some direction. If you need our services, don’t hesitate to contact us below.
