Webcam sex pics leads to doubling of ‘sextortion’ blackmail cases in a year

Sextortion, or webcam blackmail, is when criminals use the identities of attractive women – who may have been coerced into these actions themselves – to befriend victims online. They then persuade the victims to perform sexual acts in front of their webcam, record them and then threaten to share images with their friends and family unless they receive payment.

The number of cases reported to police has more than doubled between 2015 and 2016, reaching 1,250 last year. So far this year there have been more than 700 cases.

The National Crime Agency says the true number of sextortion cases could be even higher, as so many go unreported.

“We are keeping this issue on the public radar, first and foremost … making all intelligence packages are collated and gathered together to fully exploit all opportunities to put people before judicial systems,” David Jones, head of the NCA’s anti-kidnap and extortion unit, told

An App That’s Too Honest?

There’s a new app out there that’s paving the way for bullying.

A couple days ago, I was on Facebook just scrolling down and passing the time. A friend of mine posted a picture of a speech bubble and inside that was essentially the digital version of hatemail.

With her being an artist the message essentially summed up to saying that she was a hack with no talent or future.

At the time, I dind’t understand what the message was but knowning that she had a web comic I assumed it was from some hater who read her content.

Turns out, it was someone she knew.

Yes, there’s a new app out there that was released a little less than a year ago but has now

Associated Press

THESSALONIKI, Greece (AP) – A cellphone seized during the arrest of a Russian man the U.S. wants extradited for allegedly laundering vast sums through bitcoin transactions should provide key data for the investigation, Greek police said Thursday.

The U.S. Department of Justice has identified the suspect as Alexander Vinnik, 37. It said he allegedly laundered more than $4 billion through BTC-e, one of the world’s largest digital currency exchanges – which he allegedly operated.

The suspect was arrested Tuesday while on holiday with his family in the Halkidiki area of northern Greece, which is popular with Russian tourists, and a prosecutor ordered his detention pending the extradition process.

Police said they seized electronic equipment, including mobile phones, two laptops and five tablets, from his hotel room.

‘I see Melania’s campaign to end cyber bullying is off to a slow start’ – John Legend leads backlash against Donald …

“I heard poorly rated @Morning_Joe speaks badly of me (don’t watch anymore). Then how come low I.Q. Crazy Mika, along with Psycho Joe, came to Mar-a-Lago 3 nights in a row around New Year’s Eve, and insisted on joining me. She was bleeding badly from a face-lift. I said no,” he said, prompting a barrage of criticism.

In November, the first lady said she wanted to combat cyber-bullying as her main priority during her time in the White House, without even a hint of irony, which Oscar-winning singer Legend called her out on.
