It’s been 7 months since I fell for a sextortion scam. I never sent them money, but they did end up sending a bunch of clips via fake accounts to 30 or so of my Facebook friends over the course of a few days. You can read a Reddit post on it here:
I haven’t really thought about it too much since then but I just thought about it again, and I came across scam survivors. The advice here was to delete your social media; however, I never actually ended up doing it; I just stripped a whole bunch of information Facebook, locked down my privacy settings, changed my associated email address and URL; but I never deactivated or deleted everything.
I was wondering how unusual my case was that they actually went through and sent some of it; I haven’t really been asked about it since and many people who received these messages said they reported it and the accounts are gone now. I was also wondering whether it was still worth deactivating all my social media at this point or whether the scammers have likely moved on.
