Sextortion is a lucrative business that makes a huge amount of money. On one side is a fraud and on the other is an unsuspecting victim. Few people know that sextortion was invented by a woman from the Philippines. She turned video chat into business. When she obtain sensitive images or videos of the victim, blackmailing starts. Victims are afraid of getting their intimate videos and pictures online. They often pay fraudsters any sums or have to sell their property in order to pay them. In many cases, blackmail ends in suicide. Sextortion could not exist without social networks and various portals where people make contacts. The impostor from the Philippines is called Maria Capras and now runs a small empire that is beyond the reach of the authorities. He makes big money by destroying other people’s lives. See below a document from ENDEVR that describes how sextortion works.
