May 31, 2021 0 comments

Action Fraud has issued to the following advice for Bitcoin 'sextortion' scams.

Action Fraud says:
Do not reply to the email or click on any links contained within it. Instead, report it to: report@phishing.gov.uk and then delete it.
Do not be tempted to make the Bitcoin payment. Doing so may encourage the criminal to contact you again for more money.
If you have made the Bitcoin payment, then report it to your local police force by calling 101.
