This is embarrassing but it has to be told. A beautiful girl contacted me via text and photo on Facebook said she has the wrong person but can we talk anyway. I said okay. She started a lot of sex talk and finally wanted to have video chat. she got naked played with vagina and breast and made all kinds of moves. I started to started to masturbate and suddenly video ended and a message we are going to contact all family members family names scrolled down and suddenly went dark. I did see a facebook like image read gave name said he masterbutes in fron of 10 year old pediphile etc.shut off I was so worried and scared her name is ***** ***** T**** but changes it I saw her picture under another name as i was looking for her. She contacted me via Facebook text said I am doing this for them then a link to a scene with three children dying of starvation in Mali. Then a request for money $4500 or the video goes to family . I wrote I cant pay that too much a retort how much I was so nervous and scared I wrote $500. then negotiations back and forth turns out I agreed to $1500 all i can afford I texted back . okay you pay and the video will be deleted destroyed. After payment I waited and texting continued she texted finally texted deletion takes "a can of time" she continued about an hour passed. Finally some rambling message about U tube cant do it something about sex content cant be removed unless payment . etc.U Tube wants, she continued , $4500 to delete. i finally settled $1300 sent $300 ad promise to pay $225 for 4 weeks.

This is in regards to so-called, neighborhood informants.

Good Morning!This is in regards ***** ***** neighborhood informants. For some time now, I felt that my computer has been hacked. So, I had a cyber investigator check it out. Last week, what appeared to me, in my opinion, a neighbor was walking out to a vehicle with two other individuals with what looked like his hands in handcuffs. They got into the vehicle and drove off. About, a week prior to that, another so-called informant neighbor, in my opinion, had abnormal amount of vehicle activity at their home. My question to you is, if these neighbors were issued warrants for a cyber crime, can a law firm or a government agency intervene and deny or conceal any information regarding those warrants or are those permanent warrants somewhere on file? Can someone hire an attorney to retrieve those warrants?Thanks.
