Sextortion refers to a specific type of cyber-enabled crime in which victims are lured into performing sexual acts in front of their webcam. These images and videos are then used in an attempt to blackmail the person. Generally the criminals are asking for money and if demands are not met the criminals threaten to upload and share the images and recordings with friends, family and employers.

If this happens to you:
1. The Skype name, and more importantly; 
2. The Skype I.D.; Be aware that the scammer's Skype name is different to their Skype ID, and it's the ID details we need. To get that, right click on their profile, select "View Profile" and then look for the name shown in blue rather than the one above it in black. It will be next to the word "Skype:" and will have no spaces in it. 
3. The Facebook URL; 
4. The Western Union or MoneyGram Money Transfer Control Number (MTCN); 
5. Any photos that were sent
