Thank you so much for responding. I have blocked the individual on as many accounts as I could and have privated all of the social media accounts. I have send a report to the ic3 FBI and the FTC fraud department. I’m not sure if there is anything else I can do…and it feels like I am just waiting for my video to be exposed. I guess I’ll just have to wait and take it in stride. I have not told my family this but I have told one close friend. I know my family will be understanding about it but atm it’s too much for me…again thanks for replying but it’s hard not to blame myself for this big mistake. I’m not even a sexual person and the one video I had had ever taken has now been taken from me and my privacy is dashed

Hey @Kalliste

I'm glad to hear that you have blocked them and reported it. When will you hear back? Also, can I ask, how long has it been since they threatened to leak the video? I find that if someone is serious about leaking it, then they usually do it straight away. The more time that passes, generally, the less likely it is that they will leak it. I totally get what you're saying about how it's hard to not blame yourself, but you had no control over it. How are you doing now? I hope you're feeling a little bit better. We are here for you if you want to talk.
