I have recently struck up a conversation through an app with

I have recently struck up a conversation through an app with a young lady who is claiming to be 18, and still in High School. We've been having a nice conversation, but I get the feeling it is beginning to trend toward "sexual" topics. I just want to make absolutely certain I'm not breaking any laws by sexting her, exchanging pictures/movies, or meeting her for sexual activity. So far, I have no way to verify that she is 18. Is there any way I could run afoul of the law here, and do I need to check first some kind of age verification before proceeding?

I met a girl on a website called Skout, which is supposedly

I met a girl on a website called Skout, which is supposedly for over 18 only. Her profile said she was 25. She asked me to text, and like an idiot, I gave out my phone number. She wanted to sext, and began sending nude pics, and asked for a pic of my genitals. She then admitted she was 15. After a few days, I get a call from her "father" who says he is going to have me arrested unless we can work something out. He wanted $2000 for sex-addiction therapy for his daughter, and $700 for a new phone. She said that her phone was junk, and even asked if I would giver her $350 for a new one. She also said she wanted to visit me. Her dad asked for $1000 over Western Union to South Carolina. I cannot trace the cell they are texting and calling from. I tried several apps and a website, and they traced back to a 60- some year old woman with a different last name. The girl asked if I had facebook. I did not giver her mine, but when I searched her, There was no record. There is no record anywhere online of this girl. Am I being scammed? What should I do. I know I am an idiot. I need help. I know this is a lame excuse, but she kept escalating at every point, and I kept trying to say no.

How does federal communications and age of consent laws

How does federal communications and age of consent laws pertain to intrastate communication? For example let's say two people who are both above the legal age of consent in the same state, yet one of the persons is a minor (age 17) would it be illegal to speak with this person about sex using a smartphone app, and would it be legal to agree to and engage in sexually activity with this person via the app?
