If you block a blackmailer, they will use alternate methods of contact. Like, Facebook friends, Instagram followers, and LinkedIn connections. Perhaps they ran a database on you and discovered your spouse's mobile number. Maintaining communication allows you to control and contain the situation.
The unfortunate and uneasy question you need to answer is what to do about blackmail and how to stop sextortion. The fight begins with you going dark, making all of your social media private. Even if the scammer has your friends and followers list, shut it down.
It is essential to take inventory of what the blackmailer knows about you. Like your actual identity, email address, mobile number, work, and family information? Every piece of information known makes you vulnerable. It doesn't hurt to tell people someone hacked your accounts.
Law enforcement will suggest you ignore the blackmailer, which is a direct road to the scammer exposing you. If they cannot contact you, they might reach out to your mother, brother, spouse, or employer.
Plus, three months down the road, you might discover the compromised content online or someone you know could.
Paying a blackmailer tells them they got you by the balls! Never pay blackmail because you open the door to further extortion. Blackmailers are like rabid dogs, pay once, and they never leave. Plus, sending cash through a cash service or wire transfer confirms your identity.
Do blackmailers expose; some do, and some don't. Most would rather keep the compromised content between you and them and continue to use as leverage for payment. That is not to say they will not expose; it depends on the crew or a particular individual within.
If you are a victim of blackmail, you need to slow down and think. Do not rush to a plan; be it alone or hiring a professional. Think Frank's three tactics; Protecting Your Identity, Preventing Exposure, and Ridding Yourself of The Blackmailer. Anything less is a failure.
When combating blackmail, the first question to ask yourself is how you can protect your identity. As long as the blackmailer knows who you are, your world is vulnerable. My tactics manipulate the blackmailer into believing you are not you but someone else.
Preventing exposure is accomplished by keeping the communications live and surreptitiously negotiating. Be it claiming you are trying to borrow money, lost your job, etc. whatever works with that scammer. My expertise is directing and manipulating conversations.
Right now, you are probably freaking out and trying to figure out what you can do or who you can hire for help. You are currently in an extremely vulnerable place and need to be cautious when choosing professional assistance.
There are companies online that claim they can hack the blackmailer and corrupt the videos or photos. It is not happening! By the way, there are usually scam sites.
Some services state they can locate the scammer and convince them to back-off. Think about that, do you really believe the whereabouts of someone in Africa, or the Phillippine using a burner phone and a burner app on top of that can be found? Even if true, why would a blackmailer adhere to some private investigator in a far-off land? They don't!
Lawyers think like lawyers and suggest sending a cease and desist letter. First off, no one cares about a cease and desist, especially a criminal in some foreign land. You run the risk of the blackmailer sending it to everyone you know. Not very discreet.
And as mentioned, law enforcement suggests you ignore the blackmailer. This is an amateur move that begs for exposure. If you close your eyes, you still aren't invisible. You need to deal with the matter before it deals with you.
Ask the professional you are dealing with how their tactics will protect your identity, prevent exposure, and rid you of the blackmailer. Remember, anything less is a failure. So, slow down and think, someone took advantage of you once, do not let it happen now. If you need help, I can get you through the blackmail.

In the meantime, make your social media private. If the blackmailer is threatening you, reply that you are trying to get money. Say no more and wait for my contact.

The very second a blackmailer demands money; you are in the hunt. The first rule is never to pay a blackmailer; it only leads to demands for more money and reveals your weakness. You don't refuse to pay but negotiate for time.
