Surrey Police issue internet warning
Surrey Police are warning parents and children to take care after a man was arrested in Kuwait on sexual abuse charges.

Authorities in the UK worked with the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre to make the arrest.

It came after a report in Yorkshire of a child being convinced to perform a sexual act on a webcam over the internet.

Police then connected it to a number of similar incidents across the country.

The CEOP & Surrey Police have issued the following advice:

Generally, the offender’s method has been to use an instant messenger service and pretend to be a friend of the targeted a victim. During subsequent conversations, the offender directed victims to an internet link.

When clicking on this link, victims were asked to provide their e-mail account(s) and password(s), allowing the offender to take control of their login information. The offender was then able to take control of and hack of the victims’ accounts, changing their passwords and security information.

The offender would then inform the victims’ that their account had been hacked and they no longer had control of it. The offender continued the threats, saying that personal information about them would be sent to friends and family on the internet, unless they continued to perform sexual acts via the webcam.

If you think you or a friend has been a victim of the above crime, or wish to discuss any related concerns in greater detail, please call the NSPCC helpline number - 0800 614 458. Your call will be answered by a fully briefed NSPCC Helpline officer, who will be able to offer you the appropriate advice and support.

Information shared, will be treated confidentially unless there is anything to suggest a child is at risk of harm.
