    I made the mistake of asking for a massage by text and I just received a call for US Courts today saying I would be prosecuted for soliciting a minor but I had no idea to begin with and I cancelled before she came to me so it never took place. They said I needed to wire western union 5,000 to a specified individual so I wouldn't be prosecuted. I actually did wire the money and had to take a psych test for them to discharge, which I did. They sent me a (so called court document from Northern District of Georgia) Now , they say I owe another 35,000 to fully discharge the case.

    Is this a scam or could it be real? I dont have this kind of money.

    Please advise as they have given me until 4:30 today to respond.

    Thank you,

    What does "received a call for US Courts" mean?

    Needless to say, if you were actually being prosecuted for this, you'd either be visited by law enforcement officers or, at a minimum, receive paperwork in the mail.

    This is so obviously a scam that it's hard to believe any adult of reasonable intelligence would fall for it. You might want to reach out to the FBI.

    The only reason I considered was they had my text and the therapist asked if I would be up for a happy ending and I stupidly said ok but then I canceled. Is the any prosecution on this other than being stupid?

    The guy is out $5,000.00. Might be worth reporting to the authorities.

    SCAM, a rather old SCAM at that.

    The feds, particularly the federal courts, DON'T call you and demand tribute to avoid being prosecuted.

    I find that politely expressing concern for their spiritual well being, and suggesting that they meet with a spiritual leader within their faith tradition and discuss the state of their dismal existence as bottom feeders is an excellent repellant.

    Another person I met who is brighter than either of us made a counter offer - if the scammer would send her $100, she's send him legitimate job listings from the newspaper.

    File a police report and go to Submit a Tip — FBI

    "Stupidity cannot be cured with money, or through education, or by legislation. Stupidity is not a sin. The victim can't help being stupid. But stupidity is the only universal capital crime: the sentence is death, there is no appeal, and execution is carried out automatically and without pity." Robert A Heinlein.

    Heinlein's explanation of the affliction stupidity should regularly be shared. Thank you @adjusterjack for sharing this profound missive.
