After a few days and more money going to the scammer, the victim said he was “DONE! He reported that it cost him a lot more than just money. Now he hopes that telling his story will help other guys avoid it. " UPDATE 7/23/17: On July 22 we received the following email from a 25 year old male...
I was mortified." The Reddit user then described how he tried to make additional payments over the next couple of days to various names the scammer provided using Moneygram and Western Union.

A few of them accepted thinking it was me, AND HE SENT THE F###ING PHOTOS!
A few of my friends and my mother immediately call me within 5 minutes saying your Facebook is going crazy, as well as texting me the pics!
Our added point is that it is extremely easy to deceive others online. Shortly after messaging back and forth she convinced me to video chat with her, so I did.
A beautiful woman showed up on the screen, naked, and kept asking me to show her my face and to show her my penis. The video stopped and messages threatening to send the video of my face and penis to all my friends and family if I didn't pay ,000 to an organization called I laughed and told the person I didn't care if they sent the video because I'm a very open person and most of my friends and family have seen alot worse than my penis.

I hung up soon after and "She" kept trying to call back asking me to "turn the light on" which I'm assuming was so she could see my face in hopes of capturing video of me being naked to use it to blackmail me.
