Blackmail over Skype

Blackmail over Skype

The Skype blackmail crime is committed by recording the obscene images of the people trapped in the private image blackmailing trap on the Internet. It is a complex Internet blackmail crime that involves inviting a victim to video chat and then finally convincing them to undress. Thus, blackmail is made by constantly asking for money from the victim whose private images and videos are recorded. This type of crime, known as Skype blackmail, is also frequently seen in other platforms that provide video chat services.

Blackmail crime is a crime that can be committed with more than one action. Especially today, with the development of technology, blackmail crime has increased even more on the internet. Blackmail crimes can be committed in social media environments such as Skype, Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, Snapchat. Many documents such as videos, recordings of messages, audio recordings are used as tools in blackmail. Blackmail crimes can be committed on online social media sites and websites. In addition, blackmail crimes are committed over phone calls.

Article 107 of the Turkish Penal Code regulates the crime of blackmail. According to the law, a person who compels a person to do or not to do something that is illegal or not obliged to do or not to do something that he is entitled or obliged to do, or to gain unfair advantage, is sentenced to imprisonment from one year to three years and a judicial fine up to five thousand days. .

Crimes committed with this type of video call recording are mainly committed in the form of blackmail from abroad. It should also be noted that the victim’s sending money to a foreign country does not necessarily mean that the blackmailer is in a foreign country. The blackmailer and the people who receive the blackmail money may not usually be the same. There may be people who help blackmailers collect commissions, and sometimes they cooperate with brokers abroad, even in Turkey, who committed this crime.

Blackmail over Skype or skype blackmail is a part of blackmail types made with video recording made over the internet. In this type of crime, as in other types of video blackmail, video chat first follows the method of entrapment.

International legal action is also required if there is a blackmail crime abroad.

In blackmails made over Skype, money is demanded especially through Western Union UPT.
