Increase in Cases of 'Sextortion'

The National Crime Agency has alerted schools across the UK around the surge in cases of financially motivated sexual extortion. This crime, commonly known as 'sextortion' in media circles, involves coercing individuals into paying money to avoid the sharing of intimate images or videos. Individuals targeted may also be pressured into providing further intimate content or complying with unwanted demands. Typically orchestrated by criminal gangs operating outside the UK, sextortion poses a threat to individuals of all ages and genders.
