This sounds like a very popular blackmail fraud. Did you send explicit photos or videos to someone in Ghana who is now claiming they will publish them if you don't pay? If that's the case, do not pay them. Do not believe their threats. They get nothing out of exposing you. All they want is money. If you pay it though, they will keep making you pay more.
Never pay a blackmailer. Block all contact and report them to the police
Yes. Also, report them to the FBI at wwwIC3.gov. That's their Internet Crime Complaint Center. We hear this scam all the time. They will do nothing more than to keep threatening you, but block that so you don't worry. Then when they realize that you aren't scared they will move on to someone who will send them money.
Sorry for the delay. I was answering from a doctor's waiting room. I am now home
There was a processing problem with your payment for the call, so I was not authorized by the site to contact you. Customer Service has to sort that out with you, and then if you still wish a call, the site will alert me and put me through to you.
