Instagram Blackmail Stages:
Instagram is one of the applications used by blackmail gangs.
The Messenger application makes it easy to both take your image and access your friend list of the blackmail gang. By adding them from different facebook accounts, they will allow you to see any message they want and they will try to catch your sensitive point. You should not show this person that you are afraid, and you should never say that you will send money.
Communicate with the blackmailer on Instagram
You should communicate as little as possible. You should never give hope by saying that you will send money to save time. You should close your social media accounts and any platform where they can collect information about you from outsiders or freeze your account.
Under no circumstances should you send money. Remember that no matter how much money you send, it will always ask for money again, and when you don't, you will be back to where you started.

What to do if blackmailed on Instagram?
The blackmail victim should cut off communication with the blackmailer and should not communicate no matter what the blackmailer does.
