If he pays a few lakh rupees he will be enrolled in their “lonely women” section. But out of fear of being exposed in society and family, he cannot go to the police. So many such men turn to private detectives for help.He is told that there are many lonely women out there who seek the company of men and if he signs up then not will he get to make out with them, but those lonely women will in fact pay him for his services! I had done a story on detectives a few months back and they said they get lots of such men who get duped by these rackets. The relevant portions are under subhead of "Post-marital checks"-The racket that got busted in Calcutta this week is said to have been operating for years.More men and boys - some as young as 11 - are falling victim to "sextortion" - or webcam blackmail - with sometimes devastating effects.Four men have killed themselves in the last year after being lured by online gangs, the National Crime Agency said.National Police Chiefs' Council lead for kidnap and extortion and adult sexual offences, Assistant Commissioner Martin Hewitt, said: “It is in response to a really worrying emerging threat in terms of what we call sextortion.“The really key point is that as a result of this criminality, we have had four young men in the United Kingdom who have killed themselves - taken their own lives - because they saw no way out of a situation that they had gotten into.

Roy Sinclair, from the NCA, said: “There is huge under-reporting of these kinds of offences, often because victims feel ashamed or embarrassed, but of course criminals are relying on that reaction in order to succeed.” He added the campaign was aimed at tackling this and that he expected the numbers of sextortion reports to dramatically increase.

The man does as told but instead of getting pictures he gets another call from the agency.

Now they’ll tell him that he can avail of a better offer by making a lump sum “investment”. Their phone numbers go out of use and the man realises he has been duped.

The number of people reporting financially-motivated cyber enabled blackmails more than doubled from 385 in 2015 to 864 up to November 2016. Sextortion is a form of blackmail where criminals use fake identities to befriend victims online - using websites such as Facebook, Skype or Linkedin - before persuading them to perform sexual acts in front of their webcam.

The images are recorded by the criminals who then threaten to share them with the victims' friends and family unless they accede to their demands for payment.
