FIRST:  AN ATTEMPTED COURIER FRAUD
 
18/1  Friday 3.15 p.m.  Eton Wick.  The aggrieved received a phone call from someone who said they were the police, to inform her that they had two lads in custody, who had been using her credit card.  The aggrieved was really switched on and responded that if this was the case she would phone some friends who worked for the police.  The caller immediately hung up !
 
The aggrieved is a member of a local community group and  had recently attended a fraud prevention presentation - possibly one of mine - so knew what to do !!!  If you get a suspicious call - please do not engage - simply put the phone down.
 
 
NEXT: ANOTHER SEXTORTION CASE !
 
18/1  Friday - The Victim received a Facebook ‘friend request’ from a woman he did not know.  He accepted the request and responded, asking the woman who she was and how she knew him ?  A conversation then began and quickly, moved to another level.  She appeared to be a young woman, in her mid-twenties.  She asked for intimate photos and videos ………. Which he supplied.  Very shortly afterwards, he received a message with a copy of the video footage, along with a demand for £7,000.  He replied that he didn’t have that much money and they agreed to take £1,000 per month, or they would post the footage online in his Facebook feed and send it to everyone in his friends list.
 
The scammers appear to be based in the USA.
 
PLEASE BE CAREFUL ONLINE AND DO NOT EXPOSE YOURSELF TO RISK.
