Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
This sounds more like a scam than anything I have ever heard, where there is likely no 16 year old involved and they are shaking you down for money. Did you send nude photos back? Did you ask for nude photos or did she just send them?

I did not send nude photos,I also think it's a scam,I asked nice for something I would like to taste but never ask for a photo
Expert:  Law Educator, Esq. replied 10 months ago.

If you did not send nude photos and deleted all of her photos from your phone I would simply block the number, because there is no proof of this being a 16 year old and them asking specifically for money to fix their house proves more than anything it is a scam. If there were a real violation, they would not have called asking for money, they would have gone to the police without notice to you. There are tons of these scams on craigslist. Furthermore, what he is doing is extortion and is also against the law.
