All of a sudden they request a short-term loan for some personal crisis. These images can be used later on to blackmail you.This can also occur with naked photos that you send by mobile phone to others (‘sexting’).Fraudsters may also use the conversations you have to find out enough personal information about you to commit identity fraud.They’ll ask innocent-looking questions about you that make it look like they just want to get to know you, such as your date of birth, home address or family background.
