what is the answer
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 month ago.

Did you know he was 14?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
It was implied....but I never actually viewed it....so I do not know if it even happened....I was asked to pay...but did not
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I understood the age of consent in the phillipines is 12....
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
have I committed a crime in the uk
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Can you answer this
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 month ago.

It is an indecent image so viewing it would be an offence anywhere in the UK.

If you didn't view it though then it would not.

It depends what you have actually done.

There is no defence in saying that the event itself took place in the Phillipines though.

Can I clarify anything for you?

Yes, but did you know that you were being offered an indecent image when you negotiated prices?

No sight of anyone....so I was covinced it was a scam...I did not even believe.heexisted
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I never even saw her....so I was convinced it was a scam
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 month ago.

If you haven't watched anything or negotiated anything then that is not an offence.
