Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police


FIRST: ANOTHER SEXTORTION:

A young man started talking to an attractive young woman on an online dating site.  They then exchanged email addresses and started to talk to eachother on another app.

They both exchanged intimate images of each other.

The next day, the victim received a message from the woman demanding £1,000.  If he did not pay, she would post the images on social media.

The victim has told the woman that he didn't have the money and that he wasn't going to pay it. The woman then asked for online gift cards instead.

The victim again refused and has not heard from the woman again.

PLEASE – DO NOT SAY, RECORD, PHOTOGRAPH, VIDEO, WRITE, TEXT ANYTHING ONLINE, YOU WOULD NOT BE HAPPY FOR YOUR FAMILY, FRIENDS, NEIGHBOURS, WORK COLLEAGUES – BOSS – AND EVERYONE ELSE IN YOUR PERSONAL CONTACT LIST TO SEE !!!!

These do not only affect young inexperienced people – We have cases of mature people – both men and women – falling for this scam.

NEWS UPDATE FROM NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH

Hi, I am Valerie Pike, Chair of Windsor & Ascot NHW Association. The Association was formed in September 2019 and our objective was simply to help residents. In setting up the Association, we asked
How can each of us
·       help to make our community safer?
·       improve its spirit and neighbourliness?
·       help the Police to reduce local crime?
·       make our own home security better?
 
Starting up a Neighbourhood Watch scheme in your street is easy, and it’s free. Police statistics show that a Neighbourhood Watch scheme significantly reduces the probability of your house being burgled.
 
Neighbourhood Watch is about neighbourliness and making our communities and homes safer. It’s about being friendly and caring, and watching out for the elderly and vulnerable too.

Members of Neighbourhood Watch are assisted in a number of ways, including  having  free  home  security  surveys  conducted  by  a  local PCSO, to identify any areas in which security can be improved, and to advise  on  optimum  ways  to  safeguard  against  crime  and  improve personal and household security
 
But most of all Neighbourhood Watch is about helping the Police to keep us safe. They need the support of people who care. If that’s you - join us now!
Please contact us on contact@windsorascotnhwa.org.uk and we will be delighted to assist.
