Action Fraud and the Suspicious Email Reporting System (SERS) have received over 180 reports concerning the impersonation of National Crime Agency (NCA) agents. The victims describe receiving an email purporting to be from the NCA. The email states that the NCA has evidence that the recipient has accessed and viewed “child pornography” or other “illegal pornographic content”.
The emails demand that the recipient make contact within a specified deadline. If they do not, the email claims that a warrant will be issued for their arrest and that the recipient’s details will be added to the sex offenders register, quoting legislation in an effort to make the threat sound legitimate.
The NCA will not send unsolicited correspondence requesting money or bank details. If you have doubts about the authenticity of a message received from the NCA, please call 0370 496 7622.

New Online Portal For Submitting Information
It is now easier for members of the public to provide information directly to the team investigating child sexual abuse in Rotherham between 1997-2013. A portal accessible at https://mipp.police.uk means information can be provided by members of the public without them needing to pick up the phone or go into a police station - something that we hope will encourage people to come forward.
The portal is hosted on the Home Office Large Major Enquiry System (HOLMES) – it’s a national IT system used by UK law enforcement for the investigation of complex major incidents and serious crimes such as murder, serial offences, high value and cross-border crime and allows officers to manage huge amounts of information and intelligence.
