Yesterday I received a blackmail by text and today my picture still remains the same. Unfortunately for this vile individual I really don’t care what they would reveal because I have nothing to hide …at least that I can recall. Yet it got me thinking could I have done something in an intoxicating period or during some off moment This sick individual said they would reveal a prov active picture to all my neighbors and I thought there could be some good at least my neighbors will know I exist. I guess not because no payments were made and the mirror remains with my gray hair and all. I did alert the local police station who told me this was a scam and even friends in the FBI who now have the mirror on this creep. Blackmail is disgusting but also ineffective against me because I have nothing to hide and have friends in high places.
