And now that more and more companies are using video interviews at some stage in the hiring process , you can certainly count on a video interview in your near future.
At the end of the call or at a later date, they’re told that the session was recorded and the footage will be published online or sent to family members if they don’t pay a ransom.In many cases, people are lured into taking part in an online video chat session after making a new friend on a social media website or after receiving a message via a dating app or Skype chat.After chatting for a while, the victim is encouraged to take their clothes off and to engage in sexual activities.During the video call the scammer may attempt to lead you into participating in intimate, sexual activity or nudity, which can later be used to blackmail you.Scammers may use carefully prepared webcam images or footage of themselves which may initially seem flattering, but can increasingly become coercive and explicit.
