UK Tory MP Luke Evans Reveals Experience in Westminster Sexting Scandal: Cyber Flashing and Malicious Communications

A second UK Conservative MP, Luke Evans, has come forward and revealed that he was targeted in the sexting scandal that was first reported on Tuesday.
Evans is the second parliamentarian to admit receiving explicit messages and images.

He is believed to be the first lawmaker to alert authorities about the phishing attacks.

Senior Conservative MP William Wragg had previously admitted giving phone numbers to someone he met on Grindr who had compromising material on him.

MP Evans shared on Facebook that he experienced cyber flashing and malicious communications a month ago.

The first incident involved receiving an unsolicited explicit image on WhatsApp while with his wife.

He immediately reported it to the police, authorities, and the chief whip.

Ten days later, Evans and his team received another set of malicious messages, which included another explicit image.

They were able to record the conversation and document the messages.

Leicestershire MP Neil Evans explained why he kept quiet about receiving malicious communications, which are being investigated by Leicestershire Police and London's Metropolitan Police as part of an ongoing investigation.

Evans, who was among several MPs, party staffers, and political journalists targeted, stated that he had been hounded by journalists asking about the issue.

The unsolicited messages, which some call a "spear phishing attack," were sent from two suspicious mobile numbers using the names "Abi" or "Charlie." A chairman of the Commons public administration committee, William Wragg, was the first to publicly acknowledge being a victim of a phishing scandal.

He revealed that he had given phone numbers to the scammer after receiving threats.

At least 10 men have reportedly received such messages, with five of them reporting the incident to the Parliamentary Security Department.

The actual number of individuals targeted remains uncertain.
