Im reporting a scammerScammer A Scammer or Fraudster is someone that engages in deception to obtain money or achieve another objective. They are criminals that attempt to deceive a victim into sending more or performing some other activity that benefits the scammer. that has taken a nude video of me and has threatened to post it to all of my contacts. I new a random girl talking to me was too good to be true but like an idiot I did. She was naked asked me to do the same then obliged. She contacted me through the dating site Plenty of Fish. I used the skype app on my phone so I still have all of our text messages including one from me stating

[09/11/2013 2:29 AM] I do not consent to the posting of any nude or revealing pictures of my self. Doing so will result in legal actions pursuint of criminalCriminal A criminal is any person who through a decision or act engages in a crime. This can be complicated, as many people break laws unknowingly, however, in our context, it is a person who makes a decision to engage in unlawful acts or to place themselves with others who do this. A criminal always has the ability to decide not to break the law, or if they initially engage in crime to stop doing it, but instead continues. privacy codes”

Now do I call 911 or how do I report this to the authorities? Hell I dont care if people see me naked, 5 years in the army nudity doesnt scare you anymore. But that this bitch has the balls to threaten me pisses me the hell off. I want her thrown in jail.

Ok, first off, this guy was stupid.

STUPID IN ALL CAPS!

Second, there is NOTHING that he can do about it.  Once the scammer has his video, he can never stop them from posting anywhere they want – why?  Because he has no right of privacy, and he doesn’t own the copyright.  What you share with a scammer becomes public domain, even if it is private – because the other party has to agree to maintain the privacy.

Here is another one:

I had the same thing happen to me today. Mine started through a site called Badoo. Had the same added to skype and a video chat next thing im getting a phone call from a man in Morrocco saying unless i send £400 via western union he will post my Video. Im lucky when “she” asked for my facebook infoI said i ont use it. Ive deactivated my account and got a google alert on my name incase something appears. Ive also contacted my local police and have to see them tomorrow.  In the meanwhile I have reported them on here and blocked them, I cannot get my network provider to blockBlock Blocking is a technical action usually on social media or messaging platforms that restricts or bans another profile from seeing or communicating with your profile. To block someone on social media, you can usually go to their profile and select it from a list of options - often labeled or identified with three dots ••• the numbers that are calling mebut they recommended getting an app for my phone that can do it. The video was taken off by you tube straight away thankfully. For everyones info my scammers username is liliana.hluchuk5.

If anyone has any other info or things ~I can do please let me know 


You can also report them to abuse@skype.net, so Skype can check and investigate their account and possibly suspicious activities.  But don’t expect anything other than Skype shutting them down.

So learn these simple lessons.  

  1. Don’t be stupid
  2. Protect yourself always
  3. Don’t put yourself in compromising positions until the person is in your bedroom!  And even then, check their luggage for cameras! ;)
