hello

I wrote a whole story and explanation of this but I’m too scared to post it because it includes my best friend and I don’t want her / police to see it and find us?? her okay.

so vaguely and briefly. through a internet friend she met this guy who lives in the states and works in the military. He’s in his early- mid 20’s and knowingly dated a 15/16 year old girl. He sent extremely sexual texts and constantly begged her for nude photos. My friend lied about stuff so he would send her money, gifts, etc. He realised her lies but still stayed with her and recently she broke up with him but has began to blackmail him with knowing his workplace, address, friends, family, etc. I begged her not to but she wouldn’t listen under the pretence that “he’s a paedophile he won’t do anything and I can’t get into trouble”

Can he do anything? Could she get into trouble?

Honestly speaking no she can’t really get in huge trouble other than a verbal warning I guess. If he snitches then he’ll be snitching on himself for being a pedo so?😂

if he reported her he'd likely be in just as much trouble if not more than her so i doubt he'll do that..



but technically yes, blackmailing someone is illegal in the UK (not sure about the US..)

Hebephile not paedophile.

As has been already said, he would be in far more trouble than her. There is no way that he could report her without implicating himself.

Your friend sounds as if she needs professional help. Her actions sound like the actions of someone who may have previously been exposed to age inappropriate things OR of someone whom is extremely immature.

Thinking about it, she is playing a very very dangerous game. Does she also live in America?
She is putting this man in a situation where by he feels trapped.
He can't go to the police without getting jailed himself.
He has already shown himself to be of bad character and poor judgement. She doesn't know what this man might do to her.

I think that the best option for you would be to talk to Childline about this:

Both in the wrong. Whether you should report him or not, it is up to you.

Because she is blackmailing someone. He may have done something wrong but she should have got the law involved to deal with nude pictures or just have cut speaking with him. Is she blackmailing him for money?

Did she threaten him harm or just that she was going to report him?
The whole situation sounds a bit odd. Was she groomed? Or did she knowingly take advantage of his predatory behavior to get gifts?

Id suggest keeping yourself out of it, you dont need to get tangled up in that kind of mess..

As a victim of sexual abuse at the hands of an older man (he was 18, I was 13), blackmail is the least I could’ve ever done to him.

And it’s really hard to get the ‘law’ involved when the ‘law’ don’t give a single **** about victims of abuse. I literally tried to go to the police about what he did to me and do you know what happened? The police laughed, said I was being dramatic. And then he beat the **** out of me when he found out.

I have no sympathy for him. He groomed a child and she’s blackmailing him for that. Maybe it’ll teach him to never do it again. If only she could blackmail him into jumping off a bridge 😂😂😂😂

Depending on how far she goes, yes she could. She is breaking the law after all and you can't really break the law with no risk of consequences.

Obviously not as much trouble as him.

I’m horrified that you were discarded as if what you went through was nothing. I appreciate you. How are you doing now? I hope good. The law is disgusting. I don’t have sympathy for him but I just don’t want her to get into trouble or for him to have anger that could result in hurting her. And yes I agree with the last part if I’m being honest😂😂

Yes, your 16 year old friend could get into a lot of trouble if she has committed extortion or sold child porn images.
Both with the police if they find out what she has been doing and the pervert himself if he knows her address & real name.
If he is a predatory criminal with thuggish tendencies, knows her real name and has her address- the possibilities are very unpleasant.
Best thing for you to do is avoid getting involved in anything illegal or being a witness to any crime.
If your friend is blackmailing him for money, don't let her use your bank account and make sure you don't touch a cent of it.

It is unlikely that he will ever report her to law enforcement and risk exposing his own criminal conduct, crimes that carry a high chance of resulting in a conviction that will make him an american child molester and subject to registered sexual offender restrictions in most states.
If she gave him child porn images with her face visible, there is a chance of him uploading online and sharing them with other sexual predators.
Along with her contact info.

Luckily, she never ever sent him any nude photographs. He has though, she doesn’t have these saved anywhere. But she does has messages where he has said extremely explicit things. I have already refused to send anything that I may have on him because I don’t want her to do this...

He lives in the United States and we live in the United Kingdom. I don’t think he has her address but he does know what school we go to, however, we leave in a couple months anyway. I guess I know that he won’t go to the police but I’m worried that idk I know it sounds extreme but he could come here and find her??

What is she looking to get out of it, money? I can see why the urge is there but it really isn't worth possibly derailing her future over. (or putting herself in danger if the man pursues her as a result)

I doubt he in person would be able to come for her due to covid travel restrictions.
