Today’s markets and stocks snapshot, at the closing bell…



Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

Still from video posted further below.

The next three bullets are per CNBC:

  • Overall, extortion by email is growing significantly, according to the FBI’s Internet Crime Compliant Center (IC3). Last year, these complaints rose 242% to 51,146 reported crimes, with total losses of $83 million.
  • “The majority of extortion complaints received in 2018 were part of a sextortion campaign in which victims received an email threatening to send a pornographic video of them or other compromising information to family, friends, coworkers or social network contacts if a ransom was not paid,” according to the FBI.
  • “Shame can be a tremendous weapon that these criminals use,” one expert explains.

If you think that sextortion only happens to billionaires or millionaires, think again.

If you think it is only an American problem, the video that follows – which raises points applicable in the U.S. or Canada – is useful.



The world of tech and sextortion has put untold numbers at risk.

While CNBC opted to report on this topic today, it is arguably an underreported challenge, based upon numbers supplied by the FBI.

Among the steps that arguably ought to be taken by publicly traded firms is to safeguard shareholders against the particular risk that sextortion could hold.

Have you asked firms you are invested in what steps, if any, they have taken to safeguard against the possible risks caused by sextortion or other similar scams? Surprises that seem unrelated to the core operation of a business could create an ugly surprise.
