Heyy @MattK, I am Luie, one of the support mentors with Ditch the Label. 

Thank you for reaching out to us about this. I'm sorry to hear you have been blackmailed for your private photos. I can imagine that this is extremely overwhelming and pressurizing for you, and I just want you to know that we are here to help you in whatever way we can.

Firstly, let's take a breather, I can only imagine the amount of stress you are currently under. If there is any evidence of them talking on Instagram, especially where they have threatened you, then please send a screenshot of this with both of your usernames to support@ditchthelabel.org and we can report this for you. We are trusted flaggers at Ditch the Label, and any report we make is prioritised by the platform and looked at first. Once you have done this, I would really encourage you to block all accounts and not accept any new message requests. Please do not pay them any amount as this will incentivise them to keep coming at you. Additionally, you could encourage your followers on Instagram to block them as well so that user can't get to them. 

I want to remind you how none of this is your fault, and you had no idea that they would break your trust like this. I can imagine this is all pretty stressful for you; how have you been feeling and coping with it all?
