Fort Worth, TX asked in Sexual Harassment for California

Q: So I was exchanging graphic images with a woman and now I’m getting texts from different numbers threatening to leak?

This woman is completely anymous and I met her on a chatting site online and we started texting through text message. We exchanged graphic images and then I started getting multiple different texts from numbers with different area codes texting me and telling me that if I don’t comply by their rules they would leak these images. I blocked all of these numbers and the girls number as well. What should I do?

A: Talk to the police. You are the victim of extortion. Also, that wasn't very smart.
