Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

  • A man received a friend request from an attractive woman and they started a conversation.  They then moved onto another platform and intimate acts took place.  The victim has now realised, what he was seeing was a pre-recorded video and the text underneath came from someone else.  He immediately received a demand for money or the images which had been recorded would be sent to everyone in his contact list and on his Facebook page.  He paid them £250.  They have been making contact ever since, demanding more money.  The money was paid via Western Union to the Philippines.  He has been advised to block all contact with the scammers and clear all his social media.
  • A young man received a friend request from an attractive young woman online and they communicated on several social media accounts.  Via text messaging under a video, the carried out intimate acts.  Immediately the young man received a demand for money from a man of the images and video would be posted on all his social media sites.  The man demanded £600, but the youth said he did not have that much and they settled for £100.  The bank cancelled the transaction as it was destined for the Ivory Coast and they deemed it a scam payment.  He has also been advised to block all numbers from the scammer and clear all his social media

Hi, I am Valerie Pike, Chair of Windsor & Ascot NHW Association
. The Association was formed in September 2019 and our objective was simply to help residents. In setting up the Association, we asked
How can each of us
·       help to make our community safer?
·       improve its spirit and neighbourliness?
·       help the Police to reduce local crime?
·       make our own home security better?
Starting up a Neighbourhood Watch scheme in your street is easy, and it’s free. Police statistics show that a Neighbourhood Watch scheme significantly reduces the probability of your house being burgled.
Neighbourhood Watch is about neighbourliness and making our communities and homes safer. It’s about being friendly and caring, and watching out for the elderly and vulnerable too.

Members of Neighbourhood Watch are assisted in a number of ways, including  having  free  home  security  surveys  conducted  by  a  local PCSO, to identify any areas in which security can be improved, and to advise  on  optimum  ways  to  safeguard  against  crime  and  improve personal and household security
But most of all Neighbourhood Watch is about helping the Police to keep us safe. They need the support of people who care. If that’s you - join us now!
Please contact us on and we will be delighted to assist.
