I am being blackmailed by a man who just called me saying I solicited his 16 year old daughter. He confiscated her phone and is saying that he will turn me and the phone in unless I pay him $500. I met her on a dating site that said she was 18. We never met, she was on her way to my house yesterday and he says she got in an accident. None of the texts were explicit, discussed sex, and no provacative pics were exchanged. I only invited her over to hang out at my house. He's only giving me until 3pm ET to pay. I want to call the police but Is what I did illegal?

Are you still there?

No. If you believed the girl was 18 yrs old and you have the communication to back that up you should be good. The fact that you never met with her helps out as well. This is a scam this guy is likely not her father more than likely the "girl" you were talking with and the "father" you are talking too are one in the same person. You have done nothing wrong. If this guy tries to amp things up by threatening physical violence I would call the police. However I would not respond or communicate in any other way with him again. Cut off all communication. Further communication will only egg him on.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
