I wish to bring to attention a particularly nasty email scam which has recently surfaced. It is being called sexploitation, but I prefer the old-fashioned name BLACKMAIL!

A family member has just received one of these emails, but, after the initial shock, was sensible enough to report it to the police. You can read all about this latest scam on the police Action Fraud web site https://www.actionfraud.police.uk/news/alert-cyber-criminals-send-victims-their-own-passwords-in-new-sextortion-scam-jul18

It seems that criminals have got hold of email addresses and associated passwords, following data breaches of large companies. One such breach occurred in 2012, and involved LinkedIn, but other companies have been similarly affected, and this scam is only just now utilising the data that was stolen.

If you want to check whether any of your email addresses have been compromised, you can go to this web site to find out https://haveibeenpwned.com/ (you can either click on my link, or the same link that is provided on the Action Fraud web site).

Please tell your family and friends about this. Pre-knowledge may save them a great deal of distress. Don't think it can't happen to you, or them.
