London, UK (PRWEB) December 16, 2013
Cyber blackmail is a new trend or form of bullying that is aimed at teens, college students, and younger children using webcams. A webcam is a small video camera that mounts onto the computer. It allows any user to film themselves and send the videos made through email to someone they connect to, know or have met online. It may seem like a harmless application but for some has turned into a tool for cyber bullying. NoBullying.com, a product of Treze Ltd, looks today at this rising trend of Cyber Blackmail.
The victims often meet the blackmailer on a dating website. They often see a photo of a very beautiful woman or handsome man. This person chats with the victim until they are comfortable with them. After that, they convince the victim to photograph or video tape themselves in sexually comprising positions.
Once this is accomplished, they blackmail the victim by threatening to send the photos to the family and friends. Sometimes they threaten to doctor the photos to make the photos look like they are with someone or a child. They prey on the victim’s shame and fear. It is hard to prosecute these crimes because sometimes the criminals are on the other side of the world.
Macartan Mulligan, Co-Founder of NoBullying.com, said, “While it is quite a good thing that many people from different parts of the world are taking an interest in learning about cyber bullying, we at NoBullying.com look forward to the day where it is a thing of the past.

He added that parents and teachers should make a point to educate the younger generations about the sad outcome of bullying online and off line. According to Mulligan, it is quite imperative to press for more firm laws condemning all acts of bullying and harassment.
