A girl on Skype talked me into showing myself naked on Skype

This answer was rated:

A girl on Skype talked me into showing myself naked on Skype and I thought it was between her and me. Then she said she would ruin my life and publish it if I didn't give her $500. Is this blackmail and is it a crime? I have a copy of the transcript. xxxxxxxxx


Thank you for your question and I'm very sorry to hear about this.

This qualifies as extortion under Texas law and is a crime.

Do you know where the girl is located?

It said on Skype that she is in Oxford, Michigan and I doubt she was using her real name. I may be able to get it from Skype. I'm not sure,
it's been difficult to get in touch with anyone there.

Thank You,
