I was another vicitm of scammers. The story started late night on 16/01 when i met a "pretty girl" in a international chatting site i attend called wireclub.com. After some talk she asked my facebook to talk in more private place then a bit later she asked my skype...so happened the stupid thing i did and all you know. After my "performance" she showed me she had recorded me and showed too a list of my family and friends from my facebook and said i had to pay US$ 200 if i didnt want she send the video to my relatives and friends from my facebook. Well i got total panic at the moment like lots people here
Then the scanner said me to send money to an account from western union to Philippines and started to put pressure on me to do it as soon as possible...i was so nervous...then i realized on western union website i just could send money to that country in person in a company's outlet and i said it to scrammer then he (i guess it was a man) gave me 24h to send money.
I had gotten total lost
but thankfully i search about my case in google and i found this site
it was the search's first result!!! then i followed all intructions told here: blocked all contact with scrammer (skype and facebook) and changed my facebook address, name and profile picture and changed private setting to just allow friends to see my profile information. I changed my skype name too cause unfortunatelly skype keeps record of chats there then i think it will be more difficult the scammer to find me in his list and for some reason to recover my facebook's list (though based on what i read here it is little possible it happens, thankfully!...but i still think if he copied and past it in some place...)
I created a google alert with my name and other keywords about the cause. And i posted a message to all my contacts in facebook warning them about not clicking in links sent by strangers cause i had done that and got a dangerous virus.
The day after i spent searching more about possible videos with me (i havent found any one so far and hope it keeps so!) and monitored my facebook contacts to see if some strange link was sent to them. I know i was overconcerned but this kind of thing really damages our nerves and mind...but now after 36h and nothing has happened i am much more calm
I think I dont have words about all help i found here
Thank you very much all people here!!!!!
