Messenger Blackmail Stages:

Messenger 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 Messenger

   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.

She said she started sharing your images from Messenger

   It is the last sentence of the person who is blackmailing you through the Messenger application before they start sharing. After this stage, he will start using the blackmail materials he has. He knows that he can get money from most victims to delete it after doing this. To prevent the spread of your videos, you should cut off your communication and get support from experts quickly.

What to do if Blackmailed from Messenger?




The blackmail victim should cut off communication with the blackmailer and should not communicate no matter what the blackmailer does. Remember that you are not likely to find a middle ground with the blackmailer. The longer you stay in touch with you, the more he will grasp you and continue to abuse you.
