Is it a scam?

I got this text message accusing me of watching child pornography. It said to give the person $500 or he/she would tell all my friends. The thing is that I am 13 and my number says it’s at a low risk for scams, but I have gotten shady telemarketing calls in the past. Another thing is that my phone is connected to my dads somehow. Should I be worried?

    It's a scam. Anytime somebody asks for money like this it is a scammer.

    There is always the remote possibility that one of your friends is pranking you from a throw-away phone. But not likely.

    At any rate, because of your age, you should report it to your parents so that they can deal with it. There are ways to handle scam (spam) text message on a phone but the person who owns the family account (your dad) is the one who has to do it. So tell your parents.

  • Scam delete the text do not click on any links in the txt and if possible block the number for the txt sender. If you are 13 and not being doing things you should not have been doings with your phone - show it to you folks.
