Question posted in the General Law category relating to KwaZulu-Natal
I’m being threatened.
I met a man, who didn’t tell me that he has a girlfriend and a child. He approached as a single man and I agreed. We spent a night together but his girlfriend found out. Apparently he took pictures and a video of us naked in bed but I don’t recall that, nor do I remember consenting to pictures and a video being taken. The guy is also denying the fact that picture were taken. However girlfriend is now threatening to post those images to “make me famous” as a means to get back at me. She’s also harassing me accusing me of being with him though I last saw him on that night and I continuously tell her. I’m literally living in fear, every notification I receive on my phone my heart beats way too fast and I’m anxious. I just want them both out of my life but I’m too scared to block either one of them because I don’t know what the truth is. I don’t know whether there are pictures or not and I don’t want to provoke them, especially the lady, because I don’t know what she’s capable of. I really just want the pictures deleted, and to have them both never contact me again even on social media

It sounds to me as if they are working together in a scam, pretending to have photos of you, and threatening to release the photos unless you pay them. Have they asked for money from you? Do you know for CERTAIN that there are photos? Why don't you test this person and ask them to send you copies of the photos via WhatsApp? Then you will know for certain.
