Kaitlin Abercombie's Blackmail: File 2
This Video File (2) was sent via Twitter Direct Messages by Kaitlin Abercrombie (archive) to The Josh Twitter Account via private message.
During the conversation she accuses The Josh of several crimes and hints at having more information she was "not" willing to give him. Only after talking about a $500 cash-for-data offer The Josh made to a contact close to the YouTuber Onision.
Cash-for-data is a common and legal practice often used to collect important information that otherwise would be impossible to obtain (latest ex: Larry Flynt offers $10 million for dirt on Donald Trump).
The purpose of the conversation was to intimidate Joshua B. Ek (The Josh Show) by letting him know of the existence of the Audio-File illegally recorded by Miss Kaitlin Abercrombie. Threatening emails were received the following days by anonymous users via thejosh.org contact form. Extortion emails were received the following days.
Since Joshua B. Ek ( The Josh Show ) has annouced his return on YouTube on December 14th, 2018, Kaitlin Abercrombie and harasser friends (which will be named in the future) have started claiming any file shown might be altered.
We'd like to point out the presence of audio files where HER voice cannot be altered; furthermore video proof of contact with the Japanese Authority have been shared during Josh and RSN's Interview.

Kaitling Abercrombie's voice can be heard to be very clear, while Josh's voice comes from speackers or other apparatuses, proving the Audio File has been created and distributed by Kaitlin Abercrombie.
Extortion (also called shakedown, outwrestling and exaction) is a criminal offense of obtaining money, property, or services from an individual or institution, through coercion. It is sometimes euphemistically referred to as a "protection racket" since the racketeers often phrase their demands as payment for "protection" from (real or hypothetical) threats from unspecified other parties; though often, and almost always, such "protection" is simply abstinence of harm from the same party, and such is implied in the "protection" offer. Extortion is commonly practiced by organized crime groups. The actual obtainment of money or property is not required to commit the offense. Making a threat of violence which refers to a requirement of a payment of money or property to halt future violence is sufficient to commit the offense. Exaction refers not only to extortion or the demanding and obtaining of something through force, but additionally, in its formal definition, means the infliction of something such as pain and suffering or making somebody endure something unpleasant.
The term extortion is often used metaphorically to refer to usury or to price-gouging, though neither is legally considered extortion. It is also often used loosely to refer to everyday situations where one person feels indebted against their will, to another, in order to receive an essential service or avoid legal consequences. Neither extortion nor blackmail requires a threat of a criminal act, such as violence, merely a threat used to elicit actions, money, or property from the object of the extortion. Such threats include the filing of reports (true or not) of criminal behavior to the police, revelation of damaging facts (such as pictures of the object of the extortion in a compromising position), etc.
In law, the word extortion can refer to political corruption, such as selling one's office or influence peddling, but in general vocabulary the word usually first brings to mind blackmail or protection rackets. The logical connection between the corruption sense of the word and the other senses is that to demand bribes in one's official capacity is blackmail or racketeering in essence (that is, "you need access to this resource, the government restricts access to it through my office, and I will charge you unfairly and unlawfully for such access").
EXTORTION IN THE UNITED STATES
Extortion is distinguished from robbery. In robbery, whether armed or not, the offender takes property from the victim by the immediate use of force or fear that force will be immediately used (as in the classic line, "Your money or your life"). Extortion, which is not limited to the taking of property, involves the verbal or written instillation of fear that something will happen to the victim if they do not comply with the extortionist's will. Another key distinction is that extortion always involves a verbal or written threat, whereas robbery does not. In United States federal law, extortion can be committed with or without the use of force and with or without the use of a weapon.
In blackmail, which always involves extortion, the extortionist threatens to reveal information about a victim or their family members that is potentially embarrassing, socially damaging, or incriminating unless a demand for money, property, or services is met.
In the United States, extortion may also be committed as a federal crime across a computer system, phone, by mail, or in using any instrument of interstate commerce. Extortion requires that the individual sent the message willingly and knowingly as elements of the crime. The message only has to be sent (but does not have to reach the intended recipient) to commit the crime of extortion.
