Bottesford NHWAlert: Suspected Skype Scam

Message received by Harby NHW:


I have just had 3 disturbing contacts on Skype. I've attempted to report them, from army and naval men wanting to chat only via text on Skype. I was curious also  somewhat naive. 1st chap from Huston Texas, Jack Weinstein, another American James Larry, and a Norwegian Alex Williams.  Lost wife 8 years ago and adopted son 'wisdom' 3 y ago. Strange. All saying they are widowed and have adopted a son. Jack had adopted a son from Afghanistan urgently needed money for operation. and he couldn’t sort it because he’s away on a mission and could I send  200 dollars  .. asking for my age,  whether married and names of my children .............. very suspicious. Could you warn people please.


Please be aware of scams and pass information to friends and neighbours. You can also report such incidents to ActionFraud.


Thank You
