The victim was blackmailed over an intimate video that he shared on a video call

It all started when a content quality analyst depressed over a failed relationship with his girlfriend, decided to look for love on a dating app. After finding a potential partner, he too engaged in a few intimate acts on the app, hopeful that it would lead to something meaningful. But unfortunately, true love was not in store for him and he soon realized that the woman’s profile was a fake account set up to scam many like him.

Praveen (name changed), a resident of Suddagunte Palya, told Bangalore Mirror: “I was looking to date someone after my last relationship failed and I happened to use a dating app called Hinge.”

A few days after registering on the app, he was contacted by a woman called Monika who shared her phone number and kept texting and calling Praveen repeatedly. He asked her for some time so that they could get to know each other slowly.

“When I responded to one video call, she started getting very sleazy over the call and lured me to strip in my bathroom. But I was unaware that she would be recording the video call. She played back the video to me later on chat which left me uncomfortable,” said Praveen.

“I was afraid and started questioning her motives. But she kept maintaining that such acts were normal in a relationship,” said Praveen.

All of a sudden, Monika replied with a screenshot of their conversation demanding a ransom of Rs 5,100 from Praveen. When he asked Monika asking really who she was, a person claiming his name to be Rakesh introduced himself to Praveen and started blackmailing him.

“He told me that he would post my video on all of his friends’ pages on Facebook and defame me,” he said.

He then threatened Rakesh saying that he would complain to the cybercrime police attaching all his chat conversations. He tried to report it to the customer care but his efforts were in vain. Rakesh asked if Praveen could send at least Rs 4,000 so that he would delete the objectionable video. This irked Praveen further who filed an online complaint with the cybercrime police and produced all screenshots of the WhatsApp messages to the cops.

“I am immensely traumatised thinking about how this could defame my image on social media,” he stated in his complaint.” Praveen is still scared that Rakesh would post his videos on social media.
