Frank M. Ahearn can help protect your identity.
There is a rise in Facebook blackmail. How it goes down is an attractive female friends you. Your curiosity is piqued, and you take a few minutes, do a little due diligence, and see she is friends with one of your friends. You think cool, let me check her out further, and notice she lives locally. What not to believe, a friendly little lady. The chatting begins.
Like all blackmailers, the chat is casual; what type of work do you do? Do you have LinkedIn, what about Instagram, etc.; it is an extraction of your private information. Some will keep the chat on Facebook and will suggest a video. Or your mobile number is requested to video on WhatsApp or via Skype.
A mobile number is the road to Jericho and the killer that can reveal everything. Be it popping it into a search engine or a database. Either way, a home address, family connections, employment, email address, and social sites are on the menu for taking.
For those of you who do not know how blackmailers execute blackmail, read carefully. There you are chatting away, and she is asking questions, out of nowhere, she either surprises you with a video call. Or a video is suggested. If you accept, doom is pending.
There she is all hot and ready to rock-n-roll. She gets funky and asks you to do the same. Those of you not caught in the snare, when online, always remind yourself that if it is too good to be true, it is! If you adhere to the digital fun, the blackmailer will send a photo or video of yourself in a matter of seconds; followed by a list of your Facebook contacts.
The knee jerk reaction is to block the scammer, which is a precarious solution. If the blackmailer cannot reach you, who do you think they will contact? Correct your people. You might have also provided them with other ways to communicate like email, mobile, or another social site. Do make your Facebook private, and take inventory of what you revealed. Now you are a full-fledged blackmail victim.
Naturally, the next question is what to do about blackmail. Start by making all your social media private and negotiate with the blackmailer. Stall for time, saying you are trying to get money to pay. Under no circumstance do you ever send money, which is a gateway to being a cash machine? If you pay, they will never go away.

The consultation serves several purposes. First, it confirms age. Also, it allows me to fully understand your situation and information like which blackmail group, what they know about you, who you are, what I need to know about you, the vulnerable aspects of your identity, and online profile.
There are three tactics to stopping blackmail and sextortion: protecting your identity, preventing exposure, and getting rid of the scammer. After the conversation, I put together a detailed strategy to help. This strategy provides several options, such as how you can protect yourself and stop the blackmail on your own, or hire me to assist personally. I guide you through the blackmail until the end or take over and pose as you.
