The attacker can use pre recorded webcam footage to disguise their identity while appearing to be genuinely engaged in conversation; "to appear legitimate." Some romance scammers have been known to threaten people with the exposure of photos or videos obtained once they realize the victim is no longer cooperative.An attacker can upload a private video of the victim to video services like You Tube, then use it to extort them further by threatening to make it public or direct it to the victims family or friends.

Four men killed themselves in the last year after being blackmailed as part of the increasing cyber racket.

We have evidence that organised crime groups – mostly based overseas ­- are behind this crime.

For them it's a low risk way to make money and they can reach many victims easily online.

Scammers may use carefully prepared webcam images or footage of themselves which may initially seem flattering, but can increasingly become coercive and explicit.

They steadily increase pressure on you to participate, which they record and later threaten to distribute online.

Sometimes threats to make false allegations of paedophilia against the victim are made as well.

It is possible for an attacker to record any online interaction with the victim and use that data against them.

International gangs are targeting more and more young lads using Facebook, Skype or Linkedin and tricking them into performing sex acts online.

The criminals then threaten to send the footage to the victim’s friends and family unless they pay up.

Sextortion gangs have been found identified out of Morocco, the Philippines and the Ivory Coast.

Last year more than 40 arrests were made in the Philippines, and there is one ongoing international prosecution connected to one of the suicides reported this year.
