No 4 Sextortion
Topic: Blackmail and cybersex
Synopsis: This jokey animation with a serious message shows a boy having a webchat with a girl he meets online. She promises to show him provocative images of herself, but first he must strip for her on webcam. She saves the embarrassing video of him and it is revealed that she is a front for a blackmail scam, with the ringleader demanding money from the boy or he will share the video with his friends and family.
Why watch? Young people are made aware of the risks of ‘sextortion’ online to hopefully avoid them falling in the trap of being tricked into having cybersex and then finding themselves blackmailed.
