May 1, 6pm-7pm | Zoom
Guest Speaker from the FBI Portland Division

The FBI has seen a 20% increase in reports of financially motivated sextortion incidents targeting minors during a six-month period that ended in March 2023, compared to the previous year.

Financially motivated sextortion is the latest iteration of sextortion. Offenders deceive and manipulate victims to create sexually explicit material for extortion purposes. Minors and young adults caught in this trap often feel isolated, embarrassed, and cornered with seemingly no way out. In some cases, victims have turned to self-harm and even suicide.

Our goal is to help parents, caregivers, and young adults fully understand the dangers of financially motivated sextortion and to know there are options for those who need help.
