So I was contacted by a police via phone to stop contacting a person, I listened to them and haven’t spoke to said person since. I got message the other day by let’s say “chad” saying to pay $60 a week until they met 4 thousand dollars. It’s been 2 months since the officer had contacted me. When I spoke to the officer he just said to stop contacting them or he will go through with the report.
Chad also claims that I have 10 thousand dollar charge on my record due to the issue. I don’t have a criminal record I was never booked or anything so I feel as if I’m being bluff to with the charges.
The person who I was told not to contact lives in California while I live in Florida.
Curious. I would like to know how you are certain the person you spoke to on the telephone was actually a police officer.
Perhaps your analysis wl be the same as my suspicion that you have been a victim of fraud
Duplicate question duplicate answer.
You can now file your own police report against the person (this will be most effective if the threat was done in writing... if it was a phone call and so only your word then it won't be as convincing) for blackmail.
F.S. 836.05 Threats; extortion.—Whoever, either verbally or by a written or printed communication, maliciously threatens to accuse another of any crime or offense, or by such communication maliciously threatens an injury to the person, property or reputation of another, or maliciously threatens to expose another to disgrace, or to expose any secret affecting another, or to impute any deformity or lack of chastity to another, with intent thereby to extort money or any pecuniary advantage whatsoever, or with intent to compel the person so threatened, or any other person, to do any act or refrain from doing any act against his or her will, shall be guilty of a felony of the second degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082, s. 775.083, or s. 775.084.
Again, wishing you luck and hoping that I have been helpful in answering your question.
