Children blackmailed by paedophiles over online sex acts (And forced to make more pornography. Sometimes they commit suicide!)
Some sick online pedophiles BLACKMAIL children to get them to continue to make porn for them. So tragic!
[Channel 4] — Hundreds of British children are being blackmailed into performing sex acts or harming themselves via webcam, by paedophiles who threaten to send images of the victim to their family.
Teenagers and children as young as eight have been targeted and some driven to suicide by their abusers, said the Child Exploitation and Online Protection (Ceop) centre.
Paedophiles gain their trust by pretending to be the same age as the children they are targeting, and then lure them into carrying out sex acts online or sending sexual images.
They use the footage or images to blackmail their victims, and force them to perform more sex acts – treating them as their “slaves”, Ceop said – by threatening to pass on images shared to the victims’ family and friends.
Seven young people have committed suicide as a result of being targeted, including 17-year-old Daniel Perry from Dunfermline in Fife. He died on 15 July after being tricked into thinking he was talking to an American girl online. Another seven young people seriously self-harmed, of whom six were from the UK.
In the past two years across 12 investigations, 424 children worldwide have been blackmailed in this way, of whom 184 were from the UK, Ceop said. Experts believe thousands of British children could have been targeted by abusers intending to trap victims.
