Hello,

You tried solving this your way, and this is precisely why people who are being extorted have to go to the police.

If their allegations are untrue and they do tell your boss you would then be able to document that you are the complainant on a criminal charge (and you can sue them civilly as well for that matter) and that their claims are retaliatory and have no substance.

There is no other answer. What they are doing is a crime and it is a felony and it will go on for the rest of your life or until your money runs out. If you are worried about being charged with a crime from these people's bogus accusations, then you get yourself a lawyer and let him report their crime directly to the prosecutor and try to broker an immunity deal for you.
