Stock image of boy on smartphone with following text: How can you say I won't be in trouble? You are not the one who is breaking the law. This situation can feel really confusing, and the criminals count on you feeling too unsure, scared, or embarrassed to tell someone. Even if this started on an app or site that you are too young to be on or you accepted money or a game credit, you are not the one who is in trouble. Sextortion is a crime because it is illegal and wrong for an adult to ask for, pay form, or demand graphic images from a minor.
