YET ANOTHER DATING LINE SEXTORTION CASE !!!
 
This time the victim is a woman !  She was talking on line to a man via ‘Instagram’ and then onto another site called ‘Hangouts’.  She believed, from their conversations that he lived in Texas.  She has since established and seen photos, to show that the same man, has several names and different addresses online.
 
They have been speaking online for approximately 3 months, so he has gathered a lot of information about her, including details about her family, her address and where she works.
 
As part of the contact, she forwarded ‘intimate’ photos of herself to him.  As soon as he had them, the tone of their conversation changed and he has told her that unless she complies with his demands to send even more intimate photos to him, he will send the ones he has to her friends, family and employer.  He added he has ‘done this before, so don’t play games’ !

 
This woman is in her mid 40s AND SHOULD KNOW BETTER - BUT THESE PEOPLE ARE VERY GOOD AT WHAT THEY DO - GROOMING ! !!!!
 
This is such a simple form of blackmail - with modern technology.   PLEASE, HOWEVER MUCH YOU TRUST SOMEONE, YOU HAVE NEVER MET FACE TO FACE TO ASSESS, BUT ONLY SPOKEN TO ONLINE - NEVER SEND ANY TEXT MESSAGES OR PHOTOS, YOU WOULD BE EMBARRASSED TO SHOW TO YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS.
 
If someone through online conversations is taking you down that line, report them immediately.  You may not fall victim, but as in this case, the man has several online identities and if he was willing to take three months to finally initiate the blackmail threat, there may be a large number of other potential victims.
 
DON’T DO IT - DON’T LET IT BE YOU !!

MEMBERS’ COMMENTS:

 
FIRST: from Tony
 
Hi Jeff,
 
This has just come in !
 
Tony
 
It was an email which purports to come from ‘Which Campaigns’ - and they even spelt his name wrong ! - ‘Toiny’
 
It was a warning about a scam involving Amazon Prime, explaining that an email was circulating explaining that Amazon Prime would be renewing subscriptions - even for those that were not members.  To find out more, CLICK on the link below.  If you get one:-
 
BIN IT - DON’T DO IT !
 
I have received another Chinese scam email, directly into my police inbox:
It is from Dr. Raymond Chien Kuo Fung - the Chair of the Hang Seng Bank.  It merely states that someone has died there, with no next of kin and he would like to discuss it with me - please email him via a link:  If you get one:-
 
BIN IT - DON’T DO IT !
