    Matched with a girl on Hinge this morning, we get to talking, she talks me into sending a dick pic. Then she reveals that she is not who she says she is. They found my Instagram and my friends list and is threatening to send it to my family if I don’t pay them $1000. I don’t have the money and wouldn’t send it even if I did. But now they’re sending it. I’ve privatized and deactivated my account but they already have my friends list. Don’t even know if this is the right place for this, but I need help.

    So did they send it? I think this is one of those scams where if you don’t play along they leave you alone, but if you do send money then they know you’re a fool and they keep asking for more. I used to get these spam emails saying “we know your freaky porn habits! Send us x amount of Bitcoin or we are going to send a video we have of you watching freaky porn!” Obviously they never had such a video.

    I would bet they never send your dick pic to anyone.

    But in the future, just know that women do not want dick pics. No one would ever ask for one, and we don’t want them unsolicited. Just don’t send them.

    Hey Kate, thanks for your reply!

    I think it’s all good now, i activated my Instagram again. When i sent the d pick yesterday he asked a pic of my face. Luckily for me I didn’t send my full face. Then he sent me screenshots of him sending my pics (dick and face) to my followers and people i follow. But i think it’s fake since he sent those also to verified accounts. Hopefully it will be alright 🤞🤞 definitely learned from it.

    Ok good, and in the future just do not ever send anything to anyone you met online. A lot of these people are Nigerian scammer groups, and they are on dating apps with fake pics they stole, and they will ask you for money to get then out of a jam, or just straight up blackmail you. Never ever send someone pics or money or any personal information at all unless you’ve met offline and are in a relationship. Even then be super careful. I wouldn’t send anyone nudes in this day and age.

    They are really good at what they do. They scam so many people out of their money and they learn exactly what works.

    This is not your fault, but going forward I would strongly consider not making any digital images of yourself naked or of your private parts. People’s digital information isn’t secure. You could be hacked, accidentally sync with your family’s cloud plan. Someone you share it with could violate your trust or just act carelessly, and then it’s out there.

    Agree with all advice above. Plus if it gets sent and anyone sees it, there will be no proofm, likely, that the pic is of you. I would just claim it is not you and that you have no idea who would be sending them that stuff. End of story.

    Going to add, also if you carry on taking nude photos and sending them to people, make sure NOTHING in the background is identifiable to you. No “oh look that’s Callum’s bedroom wall because of the paint color or that poster hanging!”, or no “oh hey that’s his favorite shirt he wears all the time crumpled up on the corner of the bed!”. Because if your face isn’t in the pic you can deny it was you, but if your shirt or your wall or your Xbox controller that you wrote on with a sharpie or whaaaatever it is that’s random and identifiable is in the pic you’ll only be able to deny it to people that don’t know you all that well, but you won’t be able to deny it’s you to family/close friends/coworkers. Majority of people don’t pay any attention to what can be seen in the background of a photo, especially when it comes to nudes and selfies. Everyone’s too worried “do I look hot in this photo?” or whatever that they don’t realize the toilet bowl cleaner container is in the corner of the photo of their selfie, and they certainly forget about items that are connected to them in some way when it comes to nudes. Just some food for thought!

    I’m glad you’re not freaking out too badly about this. I’ve heard of teens who were being sexploited who killed themselves in shame. You have a penis, so does half the world, it shouldn’t be that big of a deal for someone to see it. Scammers are all over the internet and they target anyone. Even tech savvy people fall for a scammer. They’re good at what they do. Don’t stress out about their threats, that just gives them power
