New mothers are being targeted by a pervert who tricks them into sending him videos of them breastfeeding.
The sick individual claims to be a woman in Facebook groups for women who trade breast milk, and asks them to prove the milk is theirs by sending footage.
One Australian woman shared her experience online, explaining she had joined because she wanted to donate breast milk to mothers who were struggling, and had instead found herself the victim of blackmail.

WHY DO WOMEN TRADE BREAST MILK?
Women who cannot produce breast milk, or enough breast milk to feed their child will often look to donors for milk.
Similarly, women undergoing chemotherapy or on medication that will affect the quality of their milk might turn to a milk trade site for help.
In a post shared to a legitimate breast milk trading group, she said she had added the ‘woman’ who ran the fake group on Facebook, and agreed to a video call.
‘Once my friend request was accepted, she video called me to prove I was breast feeding, and I had my little man on feeding at the time,’ she explained.
‘I was quite skeptical as she wasn’t talking on the call and only typing with really broken English. I ended the call and she wanted to see more in which I declined.
‘What I didn’t know was she was recording the video of me breast feeding and said she would put it up on YouTube if I didn’t video call again and show her more.
‘So, so disappointed and disgusted that I was being recorded without my consent.’
One woman joined a group, and agreed to a video call with the admin to prove she was feeding – but after the admin, who claimed to be a woman and experienced in baby massage, asked to see more and she declined, things went downhill
The group, which now appears to have been hidden from public view, has been around for five years and has 2,400 members.
Other women commented on the post revealing they too, were members, and had misgivings about the person behind it.
‘She frequently commented to [privately message] her to learn how to do baby massage,’ one said. ‘It makes me so sad that this is happening.’
Another said the news was a ‘timely reminder predators are everywhere’.
The group and others run by the woman appear to have been taken down, and the woman’s account has also disappeared off Facebook after mothers were encouraged to start flagging her posts to the social media giant.
