OFFICIAL U.S. GOVERNMENT DOCUMENT: Joint Service Sextortion Brochure

This document provides guidance for  U.S. Servicemembers on blackmail exploitation from Sextortion and is useful for others as well.

To Avoid Falling Victim To Sextortion

  • Refrain from engaging in sexually explicit activities online, such as posting or exchanging compromising photos/videos.
  • Adjust social media privacy settings and accounts to limit information available to unknown persons.
  • Exercise caution when accepting “friend” requests or communicating with unknown persons online.
  • Avoid advertising or discussing U.S. military and/or U.S. government affiliations.
  • Turn off electronic devices and cover webcams when not in use.
  • Safeguard your personal banking and credit card information from unknown recipients.
  • Update antivirus software and avoid downloading apps, files, or email attachments from unverified sources.
  • Trust your instincts – perpetrators are highly sophisticated and able to trick their victims into a false sense of security. If you have suspicions about the person you are communicating with, cease contact with them.
