Hi everyone, my name is Laura and I work for Bella magazine, one of the women’s weekly publications. I just wanted to get in touch because we’re hoping to put together a report about cyber crime and in particular focus on teens/young people who've been blackmailed online by scammers. Along with information about how this happens and the figures to back it up, we'd really like to find some case studies to give a human voice and feature alongside the piece. Ideally it would be someone who has become a victim of these scams, or perhaps the mother of a teen. Of course, I appreciate this is a very difficult topic but we would deal with any potential interviewees in a sensitive manner and anything we were to print would be checked with you beforehand. So, if you are a survivor of a scam or know someone who is, please do get in touch, even if it’s just to find out a little more about what would be involved. I can be contacted via email@example.com
(freelancing at Bella, hence the personal email). Thank you.
