FIRST – MORE SEXTORTION CASES !!!
A man received a friend request from an attractive woman and they started a conversation. They then moved onto another platform and intimate acts took place. The victim has now realised, what he was seeing was a pre-recorded video and the text underneath came from someone else. He immediately received a demand for money or the images which had been recorded would be sent to everyone in his contact list and on his Facebook page. He paid them £250. They have been making contact ever since, demanding more money. The money was paid via Western Union to the Philippines. He has been advised to block all contact with the scammers and clear all his social media.
