Expert's Assistant chat
Customer: Well I had been communicating with a person I thought was interested in me. This person identified herself as Zondra Barr. We talked a while and things were cool until they weren’t. I sent her fifty dollars and she started getting really aggressive about me sending her more money. Scam! So I started investigating and found her on YouTube under the name Porsche Nicole. I then contacted her via chat and basically explained what I had found. Well I asked this person to refrain from contacting me. She became a pest so I pretty much blocked her on everything except Google Chat. I tried threats to her career, you name it. Well she is a SFC in the US Army. And I was just notified by her that she has possession of confidential information restricted in my military personal file. She has threatened to make me pay her to not use this information. What are my options?
JA: Have you talked to a American lawyer about this?
Customer: No I haven’t
JA: What steps have you taken so far?
Customer: I was going to contact local authorities but figured her being active duty military made it a federal issue?
JA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: Not at the moment.

What she is doing is blackmail or extortion. You can contact either the civilian or military police and file a report against her. It is likely a bluff that she has access to any confidential information in your military personnel file.

Customer
Okay so I should contact local authorities?
img

Ashley R., Esq., Expert

Yes, I believe you should.

Customer
Okay So that's the extent of your help right?

Ashley R., Esq., Expert

I can answer general legal questions, so if you have more questions, I can continue to assist you. If that's all you need for this particular issue, then, yes, that's the extent of my help because I cannot provide legal representation through this site.

Customer
I won't be charged any other fees for this inquiry?

I work for this site as a contractor, not directly. So, I don't have access to their customer accounts or membership information. You would have to contact JustAnswer's Customer Care for questions about that.

Customer
Oh wow okay thank you

You're welcome.

Customer
I’m very displeased with the idea of paying for the answer to a question andTHEN being bulldozed into accepting terms ,after I’ve paid, to a contract I cannot easily understand. This no less a scam than what I called about!Please lose my information
