So I just started talking to someone, just in hopes of relationship advice and the sort. The conversation never was started with the intention of getting pictures or talking about anything sexual. She offers her sexual pictures, and I pay for them. I never send any pictures to her of my face, body, anything. The pictures aren’t even hers, she got them off a website. Soon enough, her friend says she wants $1,000 to keep this quiet, and I pay, because at this point I am freaking out. Now her friend claims she wants $2,000 and this will never get mentioned again. What do I do I am freaking out. I’ve never been to jail, I’ve never gotten charged with a crime. Nothing. I need help. I’ve been shaking for the last two days thinking about what could happen to me.
Ignore "her" and block. You have demonstrated that you will give the scammer money, and they will NEVER stop until you are broke.

I agree with Attorney Ilmanen, this is a scam and you need to ignore them. If you are still nervous feel free to chat with an attorney, most give free consultations. Good luck.
