2.2.15 – Activity: Sextortion

You just watch a news story about a man who was charged with sextortion after targeting teen girls and blackmailing them for naked pictures which he then posted online. Answer the following questions:

Why do you think a teenager would send a naked photo to someone?

What do you think you would do in a situation like that?

Do you think it was the right reaction? What would be a better reaction?

Would you react differently if a stranger approached you online than you would if they approached you in real life? Why or why not?

What would your first reaction be if someone threatened to share a private photo of you online?

Would you tell an adult? If not, why not? Would you report it to CyberTip.ca?
