Extortion is the use of non-physical force or threats to persuade another person to do something for you. Naturally, with the growth of the Internet, social media and apps, extortion has been taken to a whole new level, which brings us to sextortion. Sextortion is the use of sexual exploitation/blackmail to compel someone to do something for you.
Usually when you meet someone on an online dating site like match.com or PlentyofFish (POF) or a hookup app like Grindr or Tinder, the worst thing that can happen is finding out that the person used a profile picture from five years earlier or a picture of someone else entirely, making you a catfish victim. However, that’s not always the worst case scenario. There are people out there using these sites and apps to uncover some dirty laundry on the person and then blackmail them.
Have you met someone online or using a hookup app and exchanged some naughty conversations or nude photos and now the person you thought was interested in the same thing is now threatening to tell your job, your family or the police unless you give them money? You are not alone. This happens all the time, and most people are too embarrassed to admit it. You don’t have to succumb to their threats. Our Florida Sextortion Lawyers at Whittel & Melton can make sure we handle this matter discreetly and with your best interests in mind. Sometimes just a letter or phone call from us can make the whole matter disappear.
