How can I help with this please?
What is the blackmail?
Well, blackmail is always very difficult.
If you pay he will demand more.
if you don't pay he may reveal the information.
The reality is that he has committed a much more serious crime than anything you were involved in so you could report it to the police and if you do he will be needing his toothbrush at court.
But in the meantime he may reveal this information.
There are no risk free options really.
I think overall I would probably report it and refuse to pay though.
Can I clarify anything for you?
You can only tell the truth which is that you are receiving blackmail threats.
