OHSWEKEN — The Six Nations Police say they are investigating an increase of reports of residents being blackmailed for large sums of money in exchange for privacy regarding personal information exchanged over social media.

In the most recent case, a community member was contacted by an unknown person and exchanged personal information with them. A short time later, the unknown person messaged the community member back, threatening to publicly post the personal information if they didn’t receive a large sum of money. The community member stopped all communication with the unknown person and called police. Police continue to investigate and charges are pending.

Officers released a statement to the public warning that no one should disclose personal information to people they do not recognize and to use extreme caution when using any social media.
