Hello Charlie my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.

When you say damaging photos, what do you mean?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
I have had an affair, which my wife knows about and he claims he has photos of me with the woman. He invested money with my company and is now demanding I return his money or he will start legal action and involve the press. There was no formal agreement regarding when his money was to be returned. I also belie he has hacked emails and telephones due to the information, both private and business he knows. He was a journalist and says he will go to the press too.
Expert:  Jamie-Law replied 8 months ago.

Ok - the taking of photos and sending them is not illegal.

The demanding of money in return is. So if he was going to publish without payment it would be fine.

But as they are demanding £ then you should report this to the Police.

This is blackmail.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
