Black Mail

What you need to know if someone blackmails you on an online platform

Social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and Whatsapp make us feel more connected and for the younger generation, a day without social media has become unimaginable. In a few years, these platforms have gained a lot of popularity and attracted millions of users worldwide. While the benefits of social media for society are uncountable, it has its disadvantages as well. The darker side reveals that these platforms are being used by antisocial elements to blackmail others for their advantage. There have been many incidents of innocent people being blackmailed through Whatsapp and Facebook. Blackmailing takes place when someone threatens you and demands financial or other forms of benefits. As per the law, blackmailing is a serious crime and it can have negative effects on the person who is being blackmailed. If you are being blackmailed by someone, you should always seek help from law enforcement bodies. Suffering silently would have undesired effects on your health and mind.

  1. If you’re being blackmailed on social media, don’t put up with it and remain silent. Instead, you must combat the blackmailer from the very beginning.
  2. If you are a victim of cyber-blackmail, you should report it to the local police. However, before going to the cops, speak with a lawyer and get good guidance on how to track down the blackmailer. This can help you build a stronger case. You might be able to prevent the blackmailer from blackmailing others by reporting the issue to the authorities.
  3. If you’ve been the victim of any type of cybercrime, don’t remove the perpetrator’s images, emails, or other material because doing so makes it difficult to track down evidence in the virtual world. Consider collecting pictures or printing off the evidence and reporting the incident on the forum where it occurred, such as a social networking website or a blog, where harassment or crime has occurred.
