Electronic Extortion in the Omani Society: Proposed Strategies to Activate the Role of Educational Institutions in Controlling E-Extortion of Omani Youth

Auther : Hafiza S.Albrashdiya - Said S. Alzufri

Abstract: The current study aims to investigate cyber-extortion in Omani society in order to come up with proposed strategies to activate the role of educational institutions in reducing it. The study adopted a qualitative approach where open individual interviews were conducted, followed by focused discussion sessions, and then codified group interviews. The sample consisted of 36 people, 17 of whom were male and 19 female. The results showed that college students are most likely to be extortied, while male extortion of females is the most common form. Sending a friend request to victims through social media is one of the most frequently used methods. The process of cyber-extortion goes through the following stages: demand, resistance, pressure, threat, obedience and repetition. 60% of respondents believe that young people's awareness of cyber-extortion is still insufficient, while 80% of respondents believe that efforts to raise awareness of cyber-extortion are sporadic and unregulated, reducing their effectiveness and increasing long-term consequences. Fear is the most important psychological consequence of cyber-extortion, while corruption of the values of society is the most important social impact, while the victim's cessation of productivity is the most important economic impact. Awareness campaigns are the best strategies to reduce the cyber-extortion of young people.
Keywords: Cyber-extortion, Educational institutions, Omani youth.
