I just asked this question, however, I'm nervous now because of some new information. I received a missed call from the local police (no vm was left) then I received a text from the number of a "girl" that I found on okcupid, claiming to be her father (She asked for a nude almost immediately and then sent me one, neither had our faces showing). I thought it was a scam when the guy started saying that his daughter was hospitalized as a result and he's wanting me to pay $1,200 in hospital bills. He said he called the police and they told him to not to meet with me or anything but he wanted money somehow, and if he got it, he wouldn't tell the police. Sounds very scamming...but this is terrifying territory, and I DID get a call from the police right before he texted so now I'm worried that this is a scam, yes, but it could turn into a blackmail thing. I was calming down until I called the missed number back and it went to the police. Of course, anybody could have made a false report but wouldn't they have left a voicem? I'm now terrified and I'm only posting this "again" because now I know police called me. Is this a scam? Should I be worried that the police ACTUALLY called me?
From this point forward you should hire a lawyer and be ready for any questioning in case. Do not make any statement to the police and at the same ticket I would not suggest ignoring them. IF someone has made false report , if you just leave it ignored the police may charge you and arrest you. I say hire a lawyer. Give the number of the calls you got to that lawyer and have he or she handle it from here on.
