Source: BBC One night a young Palestinian man living abroad fell victim to an online scam, involving a web camera and a beautiful woman.Here Samir (not his real name) tells the story of how he was trapped – and below the BBC’s Reda el Mawy visits the Moroccan boomtown where many of the scammers are based.They then threaten to make the Skype videos public unless their targets cough up compensation to the tune of 500 euros (3).Interestingly, the victims do not appear to have anything in common.So I figured, “What the hell, I’ll chat with this girl and see where it goes.” Eventually she asks if I have a webcam. ” She turns on her video and when I see her, you know, she is a really beautiful girl. We continue chatting, but only in messages, not actually speaking. As we’re chatting she tells me that talking with me is turning her on.I’m thinking because she lives with her strict sister, in the south of Lebanon rather than in a more open place like Beirut, maybe she’s frustrated and looks for sexual encounters online.
She says she’s bored because she doesn’t study or work and that her sister is very strict.If you enjoyed this then don't forget to subscribe and leave us a ...I, Jamie Laing, would like to introduce you to my brand new podcast...
