Not a week passes without our Family Law Team highlighting more crimes using online profiles and platforms. Jackie Blackwell who specialises in  all aspects of Domestic Violence and Abuse says,

“Anyone can be a target for online grooming or cyber bullying in many different ways. You might not even realise you are being manipulated but if someone is asking you to do something which you are uncomfortable with (even if you have consented) then this could be a form of harassment and steps can be taken to stop it. You may have done something in the past which you regret and they are now threatening to expose you and again, steps can be taken to prevent this from happening”
