Don't fall for this blackmail scam

POLICE have received a number of reports in recent days regarding a recurring scam whereby the victim receives an email advising that the perpetrator has evidence of them visiting pornographic websites and video footage of them watching. The perpetrator then demands a payment of £2,000 and threatens to share the footage with the victim's friends and family on social media if the payment is not made. The public should be on their guard for scams of this nature and should not respond to them in any way. It appears that the scam emails are getting sent out to random email addresses and that no-one is being targeted individually. Police advice is that the email should be deleted and that no correspondence be made with the sender.
