The Dark Side of BlogTV: How a Teenage Girl Became a Victim of Cyberbullying and Blackmail

BlogTV was a popular live video chat site that allowed users to broadcast themselves and interact with other viewers. It was also a hunting ground for predators who preyed on young and naive teens, recording their actions and using them as leverage for extortion and harassment.

One of the most tragic cases of this phenomenon was that of Amanda Todd, a 15-year-old Canadian girl who committed suicide in 2012 after years of online abuse. Before her death, she posted a video on YouTube titled "My story: Struggling, bullying, suicide, self-harm", in which she used a series of flashcards to tell her ordeal. The video went viral after her death, receiving over 15 million views as of January 2023.

In the video, Todd revealed that when she was in 7th grade, she used BlogTV to meet new people and received compliments on her looks. One day, she flashed her breasts on camera, thinking it was harmless. However, someone captured that moment and later contacted her on Facebook, threatening to send the image to her friends and family unless she performed more explicit acts on camera. When she refused, he followed through with his threat, causing her to be bullied and ostracized at school.

Todd moved to different schools several times, but the blackmailer always found her and repeated his demands. He also created a Facebook page with her nude photo as the profile picture, attracting more harassment from strangers. Todd fell into depression and anxiety, and started to self-harm and drink alcohol. She also attempted suicide several times, but survived.

In 2012, Todd uploaded her video on YouTube, hoping to raise awareness and find support. She also contacted the police and reported her blackmailer. However, it was too late. On October 10, 2012, she hanged herself at her home in Port Coquitlam, British Columbia.

Her death sparked outrage and sympathy around the world, and prompted calls for action against cyberbullying and online exploitation. The Canadian government proposed legislation to criminalize cyberbullying and make it easier to remove harmful online content. Todd's mother, Carol Todd, established the Amanda Todd Trust, a charity that supports anti-bullying education and programs for young people with mental health issues.

In 2014, a Dutch-Turkish man named Aydin Coban was arrested in the Netherlands for sexually blackmailing dozens of children online, including Todd. He was extradited to Canada in 2020 to face trial on charges of extortion, criminal harassment, communication with a young person to commit a sexual offence, and possession of child pornography. On August 5, 2022, he was found guilty on all counts by a jury in Vancouver. On October 14, 2022, he was sentenced to 13 years in prison.

Coban denied any involvement in Todd's case and claimed he was framed by an unknown hacker. He also appealed his conviction and sentence. However, the evidence against him was overwhelming. He used multiple aliases and IP addresses to contact his victims and coerce them into performing sexual acts on camera. He also kept detailed records of his targets and their personal information. He showed no remorse or empathy for his actions.

Todd's case is a stark reminder of the dangers of the Internet and the need for vigilance and education. BlogTV may have shut down in 2013, but there are still many other sites and platforms that can be used for similar purposes by malicious actors. Teens should be aware of the risks of sharing personal or intimate information online, and seek help if they encounter any form of cyberbullying or blackmail. Parents should also monitor their children's online activities and communicate with them about their online safety.

Amanda Todd's story is not only a tragedy but also a legacy. She inspired millions of people to speak out against cyberbullying and support those who suffer from it. She also showed courage and resilience in th
