This is one that’s slowly rearing its ugly head. It begins in a very similar way to the standard sextortion scam, but they don’t use the video as the threat. The person is contacted a short time later by someone claiming to be the female’s father. At this point, they claim that she’s a minor and money demands are made. We’ve seen reasons include counselling and to have a police report dropped. We’ve not seen enough cases to come up with steps to deal with this, so for now we’re advising people to follow the same steps as with a standard sextortion scam. The only difference would be to double the time spent away from social media sites to at least a month. As we get more reports, we can offer more tailored advice.
