Like an I engaged in sexting with what I thought was a lady

Like an idiot I engaged in sexting with what I thought was a young lady I met on an online dating site. We exchanged a few photos and then she sent me a text that had my entire Facebook friends list on it. Then proceeded to tell me that if I didn't send her $400 she would send the pictures to all my contacts which included all my business associates and my children. I paid the money out of fear that she would do it. I have two numbers that she used, one of which I know is a text now number. I emailed the number and issue to text now and am awaiting a response. What else can I do to find the person and/or people that did this and bring them to justice?JA: In what state did this occur?Customer: I am in Texas, she had me send the money to the Philipenes. I have the names and screenshots of the transactions as well.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: No I haven't. I am totally embarrassed by this and I want them found and prosecuted but I am lost on where to begin.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: That's all I have.

I did something stupid and I'm very concerned. I was on an

Hi I did something stupid and I'm very concerned. I was on an open site of snapchat usernames. I messaged one of the girls from the 18-20 section. She told me her age was 18 via snapchat. I sent a picture of my abs and she sent a picture of herself (no nudity). She then started talking sexually about grinding on me and I told her I liked it and to keep going. It got risqué and I felt uncomfortable. I changed the subject to ask where she is from and whether she is working or college. I then unfriended and blocked her. I noticed today her snapchat deleted. If she lied about her age how much trouble would I be in?JA: In what state did this occur?Customer: PAJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: No

I received a voicemail from some stating that they were with

I received a voicemail from some stating that they were with the ***** police department, and that they were "notifying me about an investigation due to sexual misconduct with a minor over communication devices", "and at this time there's not any active warrants for the charges"..the person went on to say the hours they are open, and that if he wasn't available that I could talk to someone in the "sex crimes unit". He did go on to say that I could bring an attorney or legal counsel if I felt more comfortable doing that, and it's my legal right to do that. A couple of things about this.... 1. The caller had a Southern Accent and addressed me by only my first name, "Mr. *****" 2. The caller identified himself as ***** with the ***** PD, not detective or officer. No Google search turned up anyone by that name with IPD. 3. I received a text about a week ago from an irate father saying that I had been "sexting" with his underage daughter, and that they had hired a private investigator to track down phone records and find out where I lived, and that I should call him immediately. 4. The phone number from the text, which I had blocked and therefore still have, has been associated with sexting scams in the past (per a Google search of the number). 5. The person from the ***** PD said that they had "printout of phone records that he was given by a private investigator". 6. I have chatted with females in the past online, but ALWAYS asked upfront their age. I have on occasion received nude photos unsolicited, and I end the chat right there. My question is, should I take this phone message seriously? Is this a scam? Why would they call me only by my first name "Mr. *****", and not use my full name? Why would a detective say it's alright to bring an attorney? What has me spooked a little is that they wanted me to come down, and the phone number from the caller is the general non-emergency phone number for ***** PD. By the way, I live in a suburb of ***** with it's own police force, and not in ***** proper Please help! *****

someone can request photos and videos from a minor and as long as it is not sexually explicit, it is legal. Am I understanding this correctly?

A couple weeks ago I was chatting with some people on a chat

A couple weeks ago I was chatting with some people on a chat online, I meet this "guy". We started talking and we end up sexting , I send picture on Snapchat later on he said he wanted to send me some via phone number, so I gave him my number. I deleted the content after 15 min I wasn't interested in keeping it. Later on , on a regular talk he says he is in high school and he likes sports, I panicked reallizing he could be a minor, I continued talk and end up the talk in a nice way. I blocked from everything and took the advantage of changing my phone number due a free upgrade. I have sudpitions of the worst case esceneario, if he really is a minor could I be charged for anything? I know he took a screenshot of my Snapchat but I don't know if he deleted it. Nor I'm sure if he can use those pics against me. Like I said this was on an online chat we are in different states I'm 20 and I'm resident of Texas, it's been almost 1 month and the suspense is killing me, it was completely unintentional to talk to a minor and I feel it's not fair because he shouldn't even be on a chat for 18+, I have no content of any kind, nor harassed or cyber bully him. Should I worry about the future ?

In massachuesetts I know the age of consent is 16 which

In massachuesetts I know the age of consent is 16 which means a 22 year old can legally have sex with a 17 year old. I also know that sending/taking graphic pictures of anyone under 18 is illegal since federally its child pornograpy. But were does talking about sex come into play? If a 22 year old man and a 17 year old man are legally dating and having sex, can they text dirty to each other as long as there is no pictures? For example is it illegal for a 22 year old and a 17.5 year old to talk about masturbation and what they want to do with each other over text? Its confusing because the state says anyone over 16 who is not a virgin can legally have sex with an adult and that anyone under 18 cant take nude photos but neither say anything about talking dirty via phone or text. It wouldnt make sense that 2 people could legally have sex but the next day cant talk about it over text.
