FIRST: YET ANOTHER SEXTORTION - This time the victim is a man only 19 years old !
It started when he went online to an adult sexually explicit website. He began a conversation with a woman online and she asked him if he would like to join her, in a video call ? He did this and there was some explicit talk, with a blond woman. She said she was having an issue with her Internet and she suggested they use skype and Facebook Messenger. He granted her access to those sites. Her Facebook page ‘appeared’ to relate to a woman called Dana who lived in Somerset.
They then took part in explicit sexual activity, using the video link. As soon as this was completed, the ‘woman’ sent a screenshot of what had been going on, including facial shots with demand for £300, or ‘she’ would share the footage with everyone on his Facebook page. The messages demanding money were in very poor English. The victim was then instructed to download Western Union and Moneygram software, to make the payments, which were addressed to someone called Raziel in the Philippines !
The advice the victim has been given is to close down his Facebook page entirely and block any further communication with ‘Raziel’. Police investigation, shows the profile of Raziel is in fact in Pakistan.
This is a worldwide scam and as it is online, it is very difficult to track who is who and as in this case, the girl may be in one country as part of a group of scammers based around the world, to prevent anyone being caught. ALSO remember, if you are just texting - the beautiful woman's photo you have seen - may well be a man !
THE ADVICE AS ALWAYS - DO NOT DO THIS !
We have had cases of both men and women becoming victims of this, from all age ranges.
DON’T DO IT - DON’T LET IT BE YOU !
DO NOT SAY, WRITE OR - DO - ANYTHING ONLINE, YOU WOULD NOT BE HAPPY FOR YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS TO SEE, HEAR AND READ !

NEWS UPDATE FROM NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH
The Windsor & Ascot NHW Association is making great strides in reactivating and expanding Neighbourhood Watch within the various parishes of Windsor & Ascot. Its Facebook page (@WindsorAscotNHW) has achieved a reach of over 24,000 people in the past month alone, and is receiving multiple enquiries from interested residents. In just the last few months ten new NHW schemes have been set up with active Coordinators, and residents within those scheme areas can now benefit from the new initiatives being introduced by Neighbourhood Watch and Thames Valley Police.
One such initiative is the introduction of free home security surveys conducted by a local PCSO, who will assess the security of your property for any potential vulnerability, and will make recommendations on what you can do to improve your safety and security. They will also offer very useful security items such as a variety of alarms, handbag bells and cables, fake TVs, etc., all of which are available, at no cost, courtesy of Thames Valley Police for those who cannot afford to purchase their own. They can further refer you to NHW for the supply and installation of additional security items such as door chains, magnified spy holes, etc., also at no cost to those who can’t afford them.
If you are interested in a free home security survey please join your nearest NHW scheme via www.ourwatch.org.uk by entering your postcode, and if there is not a scheme in your area you can set one up very easily. Then you can submit a request for a survey to
