I screwed up big. I sexted with a minor and now the father

I screwed up big. I sexted with a minor and now the father knows. this was the first time i ever did such a thing in my life. He called me and had a very long discussion with me about what i did and what he thinks of me which i very much deserved. I agreed to pay for his daughter to go to therapy since she was an "at risk" kid for suicide which i did not know. I will be sending him the first 400 dollars today via western union. My question is: am i doing the right thing and how deep of trouble am i in. He agreed that he will not go to the police in exchange for the money and deleting my profile on POF.

Can a property management company that manages our HOA take

Can a property management company that manages our HOA take an $80 payment made to the HOA for Monthly Dues and apply it to a $235 Lien Initiation fee? fyi, I never received the Lien Initiation or the Notice of Default, which they are also charging me for. And, neither are listed as charges on any of my billing statements. I only learned of their existence 7 months later, when questioning unexplained increases to my bills; one of which was an increase of $155 to the balance due with no charge reflecting that amount. The explanation was that they applied my $80 payment to the $235 Lien Init, which leaves a balance of $155 and explains the ambiguous charge. Again, my $80 payment was clearly a payment for my monthly dues. Can they take money intended for their client and use it toward payment of attorney's fees that I didn't even know existed?

I recently purchased a living room sectional from a used

I recently purchased a living room sectional from a used furniture store, I had found on the app OfferUp. The owner and I settled on a price discount of the delivery (actually a discount of their consignment fee), because of the claw marks on the sectional, that I was unaware of, until I went to the store to pay for it since their policy is cash only. That was stated on their ad. The owner basically purchases furniture, gets it cleaned and then sells it. Either that or they sell furniture for a consignment of 35%. I had texted him pictures of my current living room set and he told me he wasn't interested in purchasing it...that's when I found out about the consignment deal that they offer. The owner explained that he couldn't deliver the sectional for free so I was able to get him to agree that he would deliver the sectional, pick up my set, sell it for me and then discount the delivery and pickup fee total of $50, off of their 35%. I contacted him today to ask him what time he could deliver and pickup today and he said around 4:00 this afternoon. Then he asked me if there was anything wrong with my set because that would affect the sale of it. I explained the 2 small things wrong with it and that I'd take a couple of pictures and text them to him. He replied saying "Yes please because if it's something I have to put money into I'm not interested". Before I could reply and send him the pictures, he quickly followed that up with "If it's got all those issues that you're speaking of I'm going to pass". So I told him that I was going to have to go back to the store and get my money back. He quickly said there were no refunds so I explained that, that was not stated to me upon purchase and it wasn't stated on the receipt. After some time had passed, I'm assuming he looked into this, legally, he told me that the policy is posted all over the store. Obviously, I knew that before I'd arrive at the store, he would've made sure that policy was posted all over the store, if what he was saying was actually not true. So what do I do now? I sincerely ***** ***** the long message but I wanted to be as detailed as possible.

I had an RV that I wanted painted with a design. The

I had an RV that I wanted painted with a design. The original estimate was $15,000 with a $9000 upfront deposit. I made this deposit and waited for 3 weeks (original estimate was 2 weeks). I gave him another $800 during the 3 weeks in good faith towards my total tab. The RV was returned to me in horrible condition with blotches paint and deformities in the paint every where. The owner says that he agreed it was not his best work. I was upset and just said that he should paint is one solid color to avoid screw ups in the design. He agreed and asked that I pay him more money to cover the extra cost of paint. After much debate I paid an additional $2000. He agreed to take another 3 weeks to finish the RV paint job in one color and then I would pay the balance $4700 upon completion. He texted me on the 3rd week after and stated that the RV is done but that there were still bad areas that he felt needed to be worked on and that he needed more time. I responded "ok" and that I didn't want to rush him. He just texted me (4 weeks later) and said that he's not done but is not going any further until he gets more money. What recourse do I have??? Can I take my RV back right now? What should I do? I feel like this guy is going to literally steal more money from me.

I was served a libel cease and desist. I informed one member

I was served a libel cease and desist. I informed one member of the Board of my condo ourmanagement company Hoag had its license revoked in 2000 by State Attorney General, whom found $53,000 missingfrom trust funds at the same time our condo had money in trust funds with the mamagement company Hoag. 3 nonlicensed employees of Hoag took money out of trust funds.Theirlicense was reinstated in 2007. I included the full case to the Board member. But, she gave my letterto her to the management company. Now their lawyer is threatening to sue me for libel and I signedhis request not to say anything about the management co (Hoag). I said in my letter to her Hoag admittedto all charges, when in fact they did not admit to anything, but agreed to have license revoked.They signed off on all charges, yet didn't admit to anything.Full case was attached for her to see.Isn't my letter to her privileged ? Is that libel, when letter only given to her ? No malice, no monetary damages.I gave Hoag a cease and desist order for violating my free speech with cases.Lawyer is harassing me because I tried to get Hoag kicked ou of our condo and also via 4 legal agencies got the office manager at Hoag removed. They want revenge.Can I send cease and demand letter for CA PENAL CODE 518,522,523Extorion by force of fear, letter and consent. It is believed by Zaludek, thatunlawful means were used to secure Zaludek's signature on an attempted, or successfulextortion scheme.. I am going on Board now and they want me not to go on.
