          “I would’ve never thought, in a million years, I would be a victim of sextortion,” says Katie.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Have a story Dr. Phil won’t believe?

          The young woman says her ordeal began when she was 14 and met a girl on an instant messaging app.

          “I really had no friends, and I was really desperate,” Katie says. “At first, it started off with normal conversations, then Erin said if I sent her pictures of me in my underwear, she would send me gift cards to my favorite stores. Then it escalated to full on pictures of me being nude and videos. I thought it was very strange, but I kept doing it because I was really desperate.”

          Katie says she sent over 1,000 pictures and 20 videos. “She kept harassing me, and I had no idea how to stop it. I hated myself and I was very depressed,” she continues.

          In the video above, learn how Katie’s relationship with Erin led to her getting involved with a man named Mark, who also took advantage of her. And find out how the FBI was involved in revealing her shocking secret.

          On Thursday’s episode of Dr. Phil, Coach Mike Bayer sheds light on what may have made Katie vulnerable to this online predator. Check here to see where you can watch.
