    Hi guys ! As the title clearly states i got played, never thought it would happen to me at least but it did...gosh i feel so stupid because just a couple of weeks ago i watched a program about people getting scammed online which usually leads to total depression or even suicide and still i did it.
    met this guy on a website asked me to skype with him and out of curiosity i did, he turned out to be stunning of course, things started to heat up so he got naked and so did i and thank god my net was horrible so the call got suspensed but unfortunately the damage has already been made...he stopped answering and then said :

    "so buddy tell me... Where do you want your video broadcasted, fb, youtube... I know you're shocked and you're not the first victim im a professional hacker so if you want to save yourself trouble and shame evrything has a price or else your face will be the boom of my channel"

    i was shocked, got scared with me standing there like an idiot dick hanging especially that i'm not out. i had no idea what to say or how to reply so i pretended to not understand what he said (it was in arabic) i acted as if i was a foreigner and did not understand arabic because obviously he would get more advantage if i prooved to him im moroccan cause this is his goal it's to blackmail kids of his own country to have more influence on them.
    All i said was i didn't understand what he said and i deleted him and reported abuse as it's all i can do..now i'm just keeping fingers crossed that nothing will get aired out. Despite the consequences my lesson is learned even though it had to be the hard way.
    It is totally getting to me no matter how hard i try to convince myself that he'll do nothing but i have no idea what he's capable of besides being helpless and  unable to speak about it  someone except making this thread.

    I'm telling you guys this to watch over yourselves and please do not trust what u see..in this case seeing is not believing, i know this isn't new and everyone's aware of this but a reminder is always helpful so make sure with whom you're talking, because no matter how smart you think you are they'll always find a way to outsmart you.
    Plz if something similar has happened to you i'd love to hear how you reacted and how did it go.
    I'll keep you updated with how things go.
    And thank you for reading through icon_smile.gif

    Sounds like just a bunch of talk. Probably nothing. Good to know you learned your lesson.

    I'm partnered with Youtube and I'll tell you that the video will be taken down in a matter of minutes if posted.

    On Facebook it could be a bit differently though.

    I'm sorry that this happened to you, man. That's so fucked up.

    I suspect nothing may happen, as him posting it on his FB will immediately have everyone wondering why he'd want to film naked men in the first place. Talk about shooting himself in the foot. He plays a dangerous game of self exposure.

    Please don't ever ever do this again. Get to know a person first, and well, before sharing (skyping) anything intimate like that.

    Ummm... that's not just a scam, that is blackmail and blackmail is illegal. Report the fuckwad to the authorities, including Skype.

    The video is just leverage for extortion and since you aren't giving in to the extortion, it's doubtful he'd post it anywhere.
