Customer Question
Hi. I went onto omegle...
Hi. I went onto omegle one night after a few drinks and someone popped up on the tag 'older.' (I'm 26, for reference.) They asked if I wanted to 'trade nudes on kik.' I said 'maybe but also just chat.' The person said 'F17' then asked for my kik username. I never talk to anyone under 18 online and I must have misread it as 27, I was very tired too after coming home late. I got a message on kik saying that the girl was 'from the same place as me' (I had said where I was from.' Then another message asking for a pic of my face and my privates. I said i don't show my face, but sent the other pic (very stupid, I know.) As soon as I sent it, I got a massive copied and pasted message saying the chat had been reported to the American Courts. There was a lot of text, some in Japanese. There was a part about the IP and lots of other information. It said I had to 'message (another username) so I could get a reduced sentence.' Then another message was sent saying something like 'You are free to ignore this, but the girl who owns this account is real.'There was no 'dirty chat', there was no flirting, no 'asking to meet up' or anything. I never requested, nor received pics of the person on the other end of the conversation. I never gave my email address, name, or any contact details. I also didn't click on any links that may have been in the long message I was sent. As soon as I received the big long message, I muted, blocked, deleted the chat. I signed out of kik, deleted the app, turned off my phone and even cleared it completely the next day. I have scarcely been online since this happened.
This was around a month ago, but I thankfully haven't heard anything from anyone about this. However, I have been living in fear every day that something about this will come up. What I'm asking is:
Could I be in any real trouble and could someone still get in touch about this? I have never done anything like this before and I'll never do it ever again. I've heard about a lot of blackmail scams on kik and this sounds like one. I was just wondering what your input on this would be?
