Police Advice on Sextortion Scam

Post by Holger Laux »

We are currently seeing an increase in sextortion cases within our force. Therefore, as the Cyber Protect officer for Avon & Somerset, I have produced a document for those who do not know what sextortion is and, for those who do, the national advice is included to combat this cyber-enabled crime. Please find the attached document.

Additionally, I have included information on romance fraud, as this can merge with sextortion, and the relevant protect advice.

I would greatly appreciate it if you could pass on the document to your contacts and spread the awareness of these cyber-attacks.

Stay safe,


Kristian Evans

Cyber Protect Officer
