Just had a message from an account which looks completely legit (friends, old posts, tagged in pics etc) saying I’m on a baitout page and I need to report it ??? What does that mean and how do I find it ?? They aren’t replying now, is it possible it’s a scam ??

A bait out page is where they post pics/videos of people without consent. But this definitely sounds like a scam

Wtf she’s started replying saying it’s real. I’m so scared. I’ve never sent a nude before but maybe it’s something else. What if I’ve been filmed during sex or something 😭😭

No. Just report it. If you haven't sent a nude you're fine

Do you have stuff on iCloud? And how would someone on TSR get ahold of your iCloud?
Did you click a weird link? If you didn't you're fine

It’s not on TSR it’s on Instagram. The person is 100% a real person and I even know they’re British because they’re putting x at the end of their messages. And I deff have pictures on iCloud I wouldn’t want getting out which I know is dumb but not much I can do to change it now

My bad
Did you click on something weird? If you didn't then they don't have anything on you.
Report the account, thats the most you can do at this point.

Look through their followers - are they real people or do they look more look bots? How many followers do they have?
Also, what exacting are they asking you to do in the message? If they have sent a dodgy link, don't open it but ask for the name of the bait out account. Don't tell them you are pancaking and worried as if they are scamming, they can use this to their advantage. You haven't done anything wrong so don't panic.

It sounds like they are lying then because they haven't shown you any proof. Probably just a windup; block them and don't worry or stress

Hi I’ve just had the exact same message and literally freaked out I’m so paranoid now!! Her account is deffo a real account but she hasn’t posted any new posts since 2019 so I think she’s been hacked! I’m still freaking out tho. Her first message said ‘Hey ermmm just letting you know that you’re on that bait out page on snap, report it xx’

That's good, in future bear that people making bold claims to you online about what is in their possession are almost always ********ting, trying to get you to part with money or your personal information.
