Help With Sextortion
Frank M. Ahearn is a privacy consultant, and author of The New York Times Bestseller, How to Disappear: Erase Your Digital Footprint, Leave False Trails, and Vanish without a Trace. He is also noted as one of the leading experts in blackmail and sextortion.
Frank began his career as a social engineer who extracted private information. This led him down the path of Skip Tracing, which is the fine art of locating those who do not want to be found. He has hunted and found thousands of people worldwide.
In 2000, Frank began working with individuals who had severe privacy issues. Such as the need to disappear, be it from a stalker, dangerous spouse, or violent individual looking to cause harm. Eventually, he authored How to Disappear, the go-to guide for vanishing in society.
These days Frank specifically works with individuals affected by acts of indiscretion. Like, blackmail, sextortion, relationship blackmail, escort blackmail, or business blackmail. Frank’s expertise is misinformation and disinformation. There is no one more qualified to stop blackmail than Frank M. Ahearn.
No one wants a blackmailer to expose them to friends, family, or work. Therefore, victims of blackmail desperately scramble for solutions. But unfortunately, there are no easy ones.
Some contact law enforcement, which is useless, unless a minor. I would say 99.9% of those in law enforcement never have or will work a blackmail case. Whomever you speak with will tell you to ignore the blackmailer. Doing so is the worst action you can take. In fact, the blackmailer is more likely to expose you.
It is difficult to keep a cool head, but it is important. Your actions will literally determine your fate. The first step to combating is to stall, beg, a plead that you need twenty-four hours to pay (never pay). Most scammers will adhere, and the delay gives you time to come up with a plan.
Next, go dark online and make all your social media private, or delete it. If you are communicating via FB or some other social sites do not delete; still, tap those privacy buttons. On FB, remove your profile and cover photo; leave blank. It is extremely important to click Limit Past Posts. If not, your timeline will remain visible. Finally, change your username on Instagram, and turn LinkedIn invisible. It does not hurt to post or send a message to friends and followers and explain a hacker hacked your account.
What information do they have on you? For example, your spouse, social connections, employment, mobile number, email address, etc.? When they threatened you, did they show you actual names and contacts? If not, there is the possibility they do not have.
There is no such thing as only one payment or the final payment in blackmail. If you pay, you face nothing less than a pack of rabid dogs. Plus, depending on how you pay could reveal more information about your identity.
Whether you go at it alone or hire a professional, ask yourself; what is help? Most believe it is preventing exposure, yes, but that is only a small piece of the fix. Remember, the individual who holds your compromising content knows your identity; therefore, you must manipulate what they know about your identity. Plus, devising a plan to prevent their return.
What does not work in stopping blackmail?
The idea of hiring a hacker to locate the scammer and hack the file. It is not happening. There is no way of knowing if your photos and video were transferred to one or five other devices. By the way, many of the hackers advertising blackmail help are scammers taking money.
The ever-brilliant lawyer will suggest sending a cease-and-desist letter. Basically, a note telling the one extorting you to stop. Do you believe a criminal on the other side of the world is afraid of some suit? Absolutely not.
Some professionals claim they can hunt down the blackmailer and involve local law enforcement. Wouldn't you imagine the scammer is using a prepaid app number on a burner phone? Not to mention, do you think law enforcement in The Philippines, Ivory Coast, Morocco, or Ukraine care about someone who exposed themselves online? That is a big fat no. Anyway, I am telling you from experience that no private investigator is tracing those phone numbers; unless they have an NSA source, which I seriously doubt.
For many going at blackmail alone is not an option; too much is at stake, and the wrong decision could mean failure. If you want the best outcome and professional to get you through it, it is me. I will prevent the exposure, protect your identity, family, and employment. Plus, keep you sane because dealing with blackmail on an emotional level is a horror story. Take some time and learn about me. When you are ready to get past the disaster, set up a consultation, and I will help.
