Criminal Lawyer: Loren, Lawyer replied 5 months ago
Did you ever speak to the girl or was all the messaging via text?
How old did she claim to be?
What will the “father” do if you do not send money?

just through text, she claimed to be 18 on her profile, but later said she was 17, he started to say that they were looking into a investigator, then said he wanted money for the laptop, it was left at that scene i convinced him for half as much as he was asking.
