So I remember correctly I was 17 at the time and I was talking to this girls profile on Kik and they eventually asked me to send over an explicit picture of myself and stupidly I agreed. I can't remember how old the profile of the girl was but I'm starting to think this wasn't a real girl as when I sent it they then said they was going to find me and arrest me. I was so scared by this threat I deleted the app straight away of my phone and haven't been back on since. I'm 23 years old now and haven't heard anything from the police either. I'm worried if this was a undercover police officer or someone trying to scam me or blackmail me or something like that. Hope anyone can help me it will be much appreciated I'm really scared and don't want to go to prison

Forget about it and move on. For sure, the police will see you as a victim of 'sextortion', and if anyone is going to prison it will not be you. Honestly, you are in no danger, get on with your life and leave this behind you.

Hi Antony,

I think that Cyberninja is right on this one. Move on.

The police will rarely pursue minors who 'sext' each other. The person who has this image will be committing a crime if the picture is distributed in any way or is used to blackmail you in any way. They are probably aware of this and are not likely to do anything stupid that would land them in serious trouble.

Move on Antony, you will be fine.

Thank you all for your replies and glad you think that I can move on with my life. Yeah that's so true good point they are in the wrong for asking for that picture of me etc etc. I didn't ask them for any pictures etc etc, when they made that threat I deleted the app straight away of my phone and haven't been back on since to apart from deactivate the account that I used. Any tips and advice on how to move on? I just want to enjoy the rest of my life with my girlfriend and be happy, I haven't told anyone in my family about this either or my girlfriend or my friends. Do you think I should just keep this to myself?

It wouldn't have been a undercover police officer either would it? I did see on my Facebook memories that it was 8 years ago on the 4th of January or something like that I actually got Kik

I doubt if an undercover police officer is involved, they would have been in touch by now. I would not worry about this.

You don't have to tell anyone anything, just forget about it. Let it go.

Just move on Antony, there is nothing stopping you, you'll be fine. :)

Any suggestions on how I can do that and I never meant to hurt anyone or anything like that. I'm not a bad person just can't cope with this anymore.

You can contact cybersmile advisors at [email protected] for help.

From my experience, I would suggest you get some sort of counselling or support for the anxiety as this is not helping you at all. There are all sorts of ways you can learn how to process feelings, thoughts and emotions more productively and these resources are available to most people. Your doctor, would be able to help, or you can use confidential help lines as well. Look after yourself, get the support you need and you will be fine.

I'll definitely look into those things I just don't get why someone would make that threat to me. I'm still really scared and worried about this sorry I can't remember much details either

This has not happened to me as such, but I do know of people who have regretted sending pictures to people online for various reasons.
From what you have told us there is nothing to worry about as this a one off incident that happened a long time ago when you were a minor. Move on, and keep moving! You will be fine.

Ahhh okay I see and did they get threatend as well with something similar to me? Or was they asked for money and things like that?

Yes this has never happened again and yes that's also correct can't remember exactly how many years though! If I do remember correctly I was a minor yes but can't remember how old the profile of the girl was! You definitely sure I can move on with my life and I'll try my best I'm just so ashamed

One person asked for money, but was ignored and that was the end of it. If someone is going to distribute non-consensual intimate images they are putting themselves at risk of legal action, so are unlikely to do so.

In your case, i think it would have been done by now if anything was going to happen.
So yes, I think you can move on and get on with your life rather than worrying about this.
