Question value: R 450.00
A friend of mine recently met a girl on a social media site mxit. She was selling nude pictures of herself and meeting for hook ups in exchange for money. Her profile said she was 21 but talking to her she said she was 17. He ended up buying her airtime for her nude pictures and paid for a hook up but stopped the payments when she mentioned she had a pimp. She then threatend to tell her dad who is a cop and get him thrown in jail unless he paid her money. He ended up paying her R6000 but then she told her pimp who is also a police officer. The pimp is now demanding monthly payments from him or he will arrest him since he has testimonies from multiple girls(my friend only remembers 1). He is to afraid to go to the police and does not know what to do.
