In quite the predicament (urgent) - August 18th 2017, 12:42 AM

Story time!!! Ok so I use kik, it's fun and I stay in touch with friends and all that good stuff. The problem is, this guy started talking to me. He was very nice and I grew to like him. Because we liked each other so much we started to trade pictures (ik, I'm a dumbass) but he was still nice so it was fine. Well recently he got really possessive and kinda mean and I told him that he was scaring me but the behaviour didn't change so i asked him not to talk to me anymore and blocked him. Yesterday he made another account and he threatened me saying that if I don't do what he says that he'll post them online. My face isn't in them but I still don't want that. I'm really scared and idk what to do and I can't report him to the police or else he'll hurt me so I don't know. Also I wasn't sure where to post this so let me know if you don't think that this belongs in this forum. Thank you in advance.

Also a few minutes ago a friend said that they would kiss me and I broke into tears.

Hi,

What you're going through right now must be really difficult.

In a lot of cases, people who blackmail like that use it as a threat or a scare tactic, to scare you into doing what they want you to do. In many cases, people who do use those scare tactics don't actually post the images because they are hoping you'll give n and do what they tell you to. Regardless, he may still be capable of posting those images and you'd benefit from talking to someone you trust like your parents, or a school counselor. Perhaps you can talk to someone and then see where to go in terms of reporting him to the police.

Hey Egypt
I think you should definitely tell someone! If your afraid to go to the police, tell another person you trust that may accompany you there.
I know it's scary and he threatend to hurt you but if you don't do something about it it'll only get worse.


It's ok to give in to an urge or make a mistake. You are only human and we all have our flaws. We all have our weak moments and we all make mistakes. Thats what makes us human.
Thats what makes us unique and beautiful

Courage isn't always a loud roar. Sometimes it is a quiet whisper at the end of a day saying: Tomorrow I will try it again!

Hey there,

Since you are only 16, it is likely that if the person shared these photos it would be considered distributing child porn. However, since your face isn't visible I am not 100% certain how the authorities would handle it.

You could tell the person that if they distribute the pictures they could get in trouble. That might scare them enough to get them to stop making the threats and to also get them to not distribute them.

I think that talking to a trusted adult would be the best idea but I also know that in some situations letting adults know about this could end up making the situation worse. If telling the adults in your life about this would not endanger your life in anyway then please talk to them because they can, at the very least, give you some emotional support while you all try to figure out how to proceed.

Best of luck.
