Unhappy Recorded and threatened on omegle - October 4th 2016, 08:59 PM

Hey everyone, this is my first time posting and I'm really scared. To be blunt, I was messing around on omegle (Dumb, I know) and flashed my chest to someone. Once I put my shirt back on, he threatened to post the recording of me online (keep in mind I had my face in it) unless I do what he says.

I know it could have been a scare tactic to force me to show more, but could he potentially stuck to his word and posted it? My face was in it and I'm terrified it'll really leak.

How much does he know about you? How much do you know about him?

This might not make you feel better, but if he knows nothing about you, and he posts it in some random place on the internet... it's unlikely to be a big deal. The internet is a big place... so it's unlikely your family/friends will just "happen" to stumble into it.

If he knows enough about you, he could post it in a place where they will find it.

And if you know enough about him, you can also threaten to report him to the police if he does that. I wouldn't wait tbh. It might be a bit embarrassing to report something like this, but it wouldn't be the first time police has dealt with these sorts of things, and I don't think anyone will judge you too much for it.

Then politics doesn't care about you either. Truth. You've got to make your voice heard, if you want to be listened to. But that's too logical for some people, so let me go a step further. Not making your voice heard, leaves other people free to hijack it by speaking on your behalf, even if they don't actually give a shit about you. That's politics. So, make your voice heard. That's not a quote from anywhere. That's just me.

I'm glad you posted this despite being nervous and I hope you found posting in itself to be helpful.

You're right in that it could be a scare tactic to make you compliant; or it could be something he is completely serious about. Have you talked to him, or do you know enough about him to have an idea of whether or not it is a scare tactic?

I agree with what was said above. I think you should report this person for what they're doing to you. I know reporting it will be scary, but you deserve better than how you're being treated and reporting might help give you a little peace of mind in the end.

Maybe in the meantime you can do things to distract your mind so you're not thinking about this too much.

I also just wanted to point out that if you're underage, him posting it around could be considered child pornography which could get him into trouble.

Hey,

I agree with the users above, if you can, definitely report it either to someone you know, or if you know who the person is, maybe the police or someone you know mutually who you trust might be able to deal with the situation. The internet is a big place and it's important to be careful as people like this do eist out there! Try not to blame yourself too much though - while not everyone will agree with messing around on sites like omegle, it's all at the hands of this person who is threatening you. They're the only person in the wrong, so if it's playing on your mind a bit, try and remind yourself that he's the one in the wrong and try not to feel too guilty about it.

In the mean time, maybe talk to someone you trust who can help you deal with your feelings regarding it for now. A friend or family member who you feel might not judge you would be a good place to look, that way you don't have to deal with this alone.

I hope you're doing ok.

Good point.

Law enforcement is generally very ruthless with child pornography. Police might ignore cases of online bullying, or even street assaults sometimes... but not child pornography.

Re: Recorded and threatened on omegle - October 9th 2016, 12:10 AM

^^ Thank you for all the support and advice. I'm genuinely surprised, considering it being my first time on this site (or any time of forum site really)

I have horrible trust issues, so venting or telling anyone of my situation is anxiety inducing. But, admitting it on here has sure helped sore out some closure to this.

Luckily, I haven't given any information of myself. He's only revealed the state he lives in.

The fear of him potentially posting it online is still there though. I know the Internet is huge but there is that paranoia that someone could find me.

I'm doing my best to distract myself from this situation.

Again, thank you for taking the time to respond to me. Much appreciated!
