FIRST: ANOTHER SEXTORTION:
A young man started talking to an attractive young woman on an online dating site. They then exchanged email addresses and started to talk to each other on another app.
They both exchanged intimate images of each other.
The next day, the victim received a message from the woman demanding £1,000. If he did not pay, she would post the images on social media.
The victim has told the woman that he didn't have the money and that he wasn't going to pay it. The woman then asked for online gift cards instead.
The victim again refused and has not heard from the woman again.
