He had fallen victim to honey trapping & sextortion. Offenders kept bullying & harassing him with sending sextortion messages
27 years old Manish (Name changed) was on the verge of break down when he reached out for help.
Manish, who was working in another country away from home & family, found a friend on Facebook who he could trust, until one morning when he woke to a message on FB messenger with his own video attachment (from prev. nights video call with his FB friend), thereafter followed by an extortion message stating “pay up XXX amount if you do not want this video going viral & in your family’s message box.”
He was in extreme shock & fear as he had all his relationships marled on FB (Ex: mom, dad, uncle, aunt etc.) and his FB profile/friend list was also public.
He realised he had fallen victim to honey trapping & sextortion. Offenders kept bullying & harassing him with sending sextortion messages from different ids & numbers.
Our team of counsellors & investigators helped him sail through this cyber bullying attack and move on with life.
He was being bullied and blackmailed. He was asked to perform heinous sexual acts & favours or pay up a huge ransom amount.
19 years old Dev (name changed) was extremely nervous, scared & suicidal when he sent an email to me seeking help. He was being bullied and blackmailed. He was asked to perform heinous sexual acts & favours or pay up a huge ransom amount.
Dev was just surfing the net on his smart phone and a banner caught his eye. He clicked on it which opened a WhatsApp chat window with a pretty girls face as the display picture. After a very brief chat with that girl they decided to get on a video chat and he made the call to that number. There was no one on other end, just a black screen. So assuming its poor connection he disconnected within a few seconds. Immediately he got a video of screen showing incoming call from his number with his display pic. The girl (as he assumes seeing the DP) messages him, “I am going to report to police for harassment as I have the evidence that you are calling me at night odd hours”. She had deleted all previous messages of their conversation so he could not have the chat were she had written okay let’s do video chat.
Dev apologised feeling he had offended but the girl started bullying with her threat to lodge a complaint & asked him to perform indecent sexual acts or pay up XXX amount.
Our team of psychologist & investigators helped Dev fight & overcame the bullies, speak up to his parents about this incident & move on in his life without any fears.
