I am 43 and live in Indiana, I started chatting with a gal

I am 43 and live in Indiana, I started chatting with a gal from South Carolina on a website who was listed as 18...she gave me her number almost immediately and told me to text her. I texted her, and after a few minutes I sent her some photos of me including a nude picture. She responded back with a series of nude pictures of herself. We "sexted" for awhile, and then I went to bed. We chatted very briefly the next day, but it wasn't explicit or sexual in anyway. The day after that a got a call from her father saying that her daughter cut her wrists and that if I help pay for the medical bills that nothing would be reported. It was then that he sent me a picture of our text, and in the text the girl had stated that she was 16! I completely missed seeing that originally because it was followed up with all of the pictures of her! I sent him a wire for $3000.00 because I felt so bad and had made an honest mistake! Now he called me three days later saying he couldn't pay his half and is wanting to send me back my money, and that he'll call the police. I don't know if this is a scam or not.

I was lonely (recently separated) and did a stupid thing. I downloaded a random chat app. I got a "Hi" from someone and I asked their age/sex/location. They said 18 f USA. I told them mine 34 m USA. I sent a face pic and she sent one. I thought she looked young and I asked if she was really 18. She swore she was 18 but said everyone says she looks young. It turned into a sex chat, and I sent two explicit pictures of myself. She didn't send any more pics. I started feeling uneasy and said again are you sure you're 18 and she said yes. I ended the chat anyway. I'll never do that again but could that have been a sting and can I be in trouble even though she said she was 18. It was an app on a phone. Can that be traced through IP. Just feel stupid and nervous

I had a concern regarding a sexting conversation I had

Hi, i had a concern regarding a sexting conversation I had with someone. JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue? Customer: Of course. I use an online dating service called Plenty of Fish and there was a girl that mentioned that she was 18 and wanted to text with me. She sent me nude photos and asked me to send some back as well. However, she later mentioned that she was under 18 after we exchanged photos. JA: OK got it. Last thing — Criminal Lawyers generally expect a deposit of about $18 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.
