My Skype Username [Removed to maintain confidentiality] -
Last night/ earily this morning
A stranger messaged myskype account last night and I thought nothing of it because I used to recieve stranger messages on other messagers like yahoo.
They said hello
I chatted back, it was some girl on the other end who in little time was in nothing. I was just in my bed ...embarring to say in nothing already just ready for bed bc I had to work at 10am today.
Then the person changed the video to a feed of myself in nothing. They showed they recorded the video feed without my permission. And started making demands I was told it be would uploaded it to my Fiance, Friends and Family. I am assuming the person means over my facebook. If I didnt follow there directions I was told to go to certain sites and fill out various info. They said if I listened they would delete the video. After about a hour of more of this because i was scared i filled out the sites that in the end took me to various cam sites. My card started declining. So I thought I would be let go of this
The person started typing to me that I need to go to a Western Union and send them 200 dollars, I pleaded and said I have no money to send. The person continued and said okay then 100 dollars I pleaded and begged and said I have no money.
I was told I have until sometime today and then they logged off.
I am hoping Skype traces messages or has some sort of log on ip addresses
If I recall (I am at work) I think the persons name on vid chat was a Abbey. It was my only chat at that time.
I hid the conversation on my skype out of embarassment.
After the person was gone I called every phone number on all the websites to cancel the porn subscriptions. One of the sites took me to a cam site where the pic was there of the girl I am trying to recall the name but it was a Anna Cherry I think. on a Camforyou. site that I saw over the skype cam. I am thinking it was a prerecorded of her. And I was asked to tip that person but my card had already declined.
After cancelling the subscriptions I found out my card was in the negative and I didnt know what to do but to go to the bank before work to but it in the positive so I dont have fees.
I just got off the phone with Huntington Bank and had my card canceled and I informed them of the situation. My Case # is [Removed to maintain confidentiality.]
So far I dont think anyone was sent an upload of the video.
But I was told I had until today to come up with the money. But I wasnt told a time.
I dont plan on sending the message but I am praying if there is any way to help me you can.

Hi Bearski, I'm here to help you. I have been through the same situation that you are going through right now, and I'm here to tell you that you will overcome this. I went through the same threats and everything that you been facing through the last few weeks. And the same thing happen to me too! but it happen 7 months ago. I can help you through this and by the way. don't send any money to the blackmailer. block him right away and stop all communication. and also I want you to go to this website called www.scamsurvivors.com they help people who have gone through problems like this and more. tell them 911 sent you. I hope that helps if you contact them they will put the paranoid you are going through to easy.
I'm really glad I found this, and that you all posted. I thought I was alone. I'm in the same state - I have to do what he wants or he'll show pics, clips, emails, and chats on a facebook page. We talked for 4 years, so it was only in the end that I agreed to send a pic, then another...now he's made a fb page and sent me the link. I closed my FB account, but he already has my children's pages. He says if I don't give in, he'll send them the link - or worse, post something of me on their walls.
I had to tell my kids - they are 18, so no protection from the law - and ask them to up their FB security. and to expect emails or messages about me.
Now he's threatening to do worse ... I'm all tied up in knots.
