Definition Edit

The extortion threat is carried out in co-ordinated campaigns aimed at blackmailing an individual by damaging his reputation for profit or general malicious motives. For example, denial-of-reputation can lock-out the victim who is then blackmailed in order to clean his reputation.[1]
