For example, you may have become Facebook “friends” or connected through other social media sites with someone who asked you to arrange a webcam chat session. During the session, they showed you a (pre-recorded-unbeknownst to you) video of themselves disrobing and asked you to do the same or more.
The individual recorded your webcam session. They contact you with a link to the video and instruct you to pay a fee or the video will be made public and distributed to contacts on your social network sites.
