So I believe I have what has happened to me is part of these scams after reading through here. So I meet a girl on POF, profile said she was 18, we exchanged a few messages then she asked if we could text so I agreed. She gave me her number which was an Ohio area code which threw me off because that’s a few states over. I asked her about it and she said she recently moved here and was from Ohio. Red flag I know but I texted anyway. We had some small talk then after sent me a photo, I sent her one back, no nudity on either. After a while asked if I would like to have fun and I agreed. She sent some nudes and in return I just sent a shirtless picture. She asked for a nude on in which I said I couldn’t. After a while I she sends a video of herself using a toy. I say a few naughty things. She got mad at me for not sending one in which I told her I was busy. She then apologizes and asked my age. I tell her I’m 27, and then ask her age which I thought I knew because of her profile. She replied saying she was 17. Then asked to meet up and I told her no that’s a legal issue in which she replied something I forget but asked when she turned 18 and it was two weeks away. That was end of the conversation that night. I was disgusted when found out she was 17 and deleted everything thing she sent. The next morning she sends a good morning text and asked if I was working I said good morning and yes she then asked if we still wanted to hang out and I politely said not sure. I know I never should of replied that morning but I didn’t wanna be prick. Never heard nothing back till later that evening when I got a call from a Kansas number. I answer it and it’s her supposed dad (older white guy thick southern accent) saying he found his daughter giggling at her phone and saw our messages. Says he filled a report with the police in the city they lived and they got in contact with the sheriff where I live. He said he was going to file the report and listed off the crimes. I told him her profile on POF said she was eighteen and in return he said he already called them and said it’s not their fault after the number exchange they have no liability. After a long conversation about how his wife doesn’t know and she is on her way to Cincinnati to bring back her mom (which was weird because they just flew back from Ohio) and she will have to turn around to take care of her daughter after this and file with the sheriffs as well. He said he hadn’t told her yet and if we could make a deal as men he wouldn’t tell her or the police. He claimed she just got the phone for Christmas and would now have to cancel it and if I agreed to pay half of each we would make the deal. So I said I would, he wanted me to cash app the money told him I didn’t have that app. He then said to get a green dot card at cvs, Walgreens, or rite aid. ( this is when I thought was the scam because rite aid is not a store anywhere near my region) so I told him this is a scam. He got even more upset and told me if I don’t do it in an hour he’ll call the police back up and file charges I told him no and he said I’ll give you two minutes to call me back and make your decision, if you don’t agree you’ll have a bad new year. I never called back and have yet to hear anything. He asked for my last name which o never gave. Whole conversation thing was about 45 min long. I’m sure it’s a scam so wanted to let you know my story and get your opinions I was stupid and now will never use online again.

Here are some more info about my situation:

Dad kept calling me son like in other stories

Both phone numbers used after looking them up daughter and father are non-fixed VOIP which gave me another red flag after finding that

Time between texts with her was always long for her to respond

The fathers number ended in 000 which was weird, friend tried to call number after I told him and no answer and not a voicemail message.

I’m still kinda worried it is not a scam but the more I think about it. It just seems like a good thought trough one. I’m still nervous on if I’ll hear anything again.

Thanks for the reply. I can’t post a link to the POF profile, since I deactivated it after the call. But can provide the phone numbers.

Supposed father 9136621000

Girl from POF claimed Ashley was her name
2163597103

Also another bit of information I forgot to put in my original post. He said he was retired marine and owned 2 landscape companies. He assured me the green dot card would work for payment because that’s how he paid his illegals in his company’s

Still haven’t received another call, don’t think I will since I told him it sounded like a scam.

Read the first post in this topic and follow the instructions there to the letter.

Please do not tell scammers that they are listed here - it will take them seconds to change their fake details and their new details will not be listed for any future victims to find.

If you have deactivated you Instagram and removed all other means for the scammer to contact you then he no longer has leverage over you. He is only interested in the money he can blackmail from you, so posting the images gains him nothing. If he can't contact you to make his threats, he will soon move on elsewhere.
