Hi,

Thank you for your question and welcome.

My name is AJ and I will assist you.

If you are being blackmailed for money then potentially it is a criminal offence under S.40 of the Administration of Justice Act 1970 - unlawful harassment of debtors.

Otherwise you can report it here or at your local police station http://www.actionfraud.police.uk/report_fraud

Can I assist any further

Kind regards

AJ
