Not so much a new project as a “side” project.

So, let me explain.  As you may or may not be aware, we do a lot of work related to sextortion/webcam blackmail here.  A lot of other people are also talking right now about the same subject, but there’s a lot of misinformation out there.  Too many “experts” spouting off Chinese whispers versions of advice and getting some of the really important stuff wrong.  I felt the time was right to put out what I feel is a “definitive” guide.  It’s one based on over 6 years’ experience in dealing with these scams and over 25,000 forms containing scammer data.  This one isn’t really for the victims of the scams though, but for everyone else.  Some of the information will be similar to our steps, but again it’s for more of a general overview of the scam, how it works and so on.  It’s still a work in progress right now, as I tend to write up what’s needed all in one go and then rewrite, add to, take away from, shuffle around and generally alter my work until it barely looks like the first draft anymore.  I’m kind of 95% happy with it as it is right now, but there’s still no doubt going to be changes made to it over the next few weeks.  If you want to check it out, go to and please let me know what you think.
