Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police


A young man was contacted on Instagram, by what he thought was a woman called ‘Jayne’, who lived in New York. They talked for a week.

Eventually, they started to share intimate photos and videos.

Immediately, he received a message demanding £200, or the images would be shared with everyone in his personal contact list.  He did nothing and then received further messages demanding £250 as his response was so slow.  He sent the £250 and has now received a further demand for another £350 !

He has now closed all his social media accounts.

PLEASE – do not do, say, write, text, photograph, video, record, send anything online / via your phone that you would not be happy for your family, relatives, neighbours, friends, work colleagues, employer - everyone in your contact list - to see !

A new year, a new logo, a new beginning

Why not start a new scheme in your street - A scheme is a group of members, usually in the same road or area, which has a coordinator to manage the scheme.

In the last week, we have had inquiries from various residents and we are delighted to announce that three new schemes are being set up.

There are many benefits to starting a scheme - awareness of types of crimes that affect our communities such as vehicle crime and advice on scams, access to CCTV,  for instance.

Neighbourhood Watch is not just about crime awareness though. It's about supporting communities and tackling issues within them like, loneliness and vulnerability.

Being aware of these issues will enable you to be proactive in your community to help those in our communities that need support.

Please contact us on and we will be delighted to assist.
Valerie Pike, Chairman of Windsor & Ascot NHW Association.
