Met a girl online that said she was going to 18 got to texting her she turned out to not be and got an angry parent calling me that weekend he then said he wanted to check with his wife what to do about me then hung up. Called a 10-30minutes later saying that I had to pay for his wife's broken laptop that his daughter broke and about a week later. Says that she will need therapy because of it too. Mind you I only texted her for a week. He also says that his last name is different from the one that was provided Dingle not Taylor had a different number before 3216265408. But the new number came with a text after he called several times never leaving a voicemail. It said he had been on vacation and had called me the day before I was suppose to send money via Green Dot money Pak the way I was doing it for about six weeks. This is where I ended it.

Sextortion scam

A girl I met online pushed to use text messaging instead of online messenger. I acquiesced. She claimed to be 19, then became lewd and sent me several nude photographs of herself. She requested I do the same. Again, I repayed the favor.

The individual then stated they were 16 years of age. I let that individual know that it was very illegal, deleted all photographs and refrained from contact. The next day an angry male calls me from the same South Carolina number claiming to be her father.

This man demanded money via a greendot money pak card from Walgreens to pay for electronics he had broken. I researched the scope of this story and found at least 70 other matching stories of similar scams from sc numbers with matching dialogue.

If this individual continues to attempt extortion, I will be filing an indecent report with the federal bureau of investigation.
