What They Know Determines The Strategy
Most Backmailers want a quick payment, and so they promise they will destroy everything after the funds are received. Paying a sextortionist never works out in your favor, and it will only be a matter of time before you have no choice but to say no. However, there are right and wrong ways to say no.
I embrace the strategy of avoidance, which gives me time to assess the seriousness of the scammer. Plus, it brings us in the direction of you not saying no but squeaking out of the situation without sending money.
After you prepay the consultation, email me at FA@FrankAhearn.com and let me know how you want to communicate, email, phone, WhatsApp, or video.
Sextortionist do not always go away, much of the times they lay low, and resurface. Therefore, you must consider long term protection and damage control. Especially is they have information like your mobile number, email address, social sites, employment, or information about your friends and family. The strategy of digital disinformation protects you from potential disaster.
I have quite a unique background. Initially, I was a skip tracer (finds people) and social engineer (extracts information), and from there, I began disappearing people who needed to vanish.
