The women may be tied to a single male orchestrator elsewhere in Europe.
Even on the off chance that the women were under 14, Italian law allows ignorance of a partner's age as a limited legal defense, unless the victim is under 10.
A 13-year-old scammer could still win such a case, but not before a pitched legal battle; hardly worth a 500 euro payoff.
Over time, the conversation and behavior become more and more sexual, until the women invite the men onto Skype for some fun of a more personal nature.
After the Skype shenanigans, the scammers get in touch with their victims again, and claim to be under 18.
After they broke up, he made sure she found out that others were watching her get down and dirty.
So, just because you think he is trustworthy does not mean he is.Furthermore, the age of consent in Italy is 14, not 18, for both sex and sexual performances.A 17-year-old might be tough to differentiate from an 18-year-old, but a 13-year-old is usually not.But as harsh as it sounds, people do get angry with each other and break up. All those hot Skype sex sessions could come back to bite. So when you are getting all hot and heavy for your man, think again.I am not trying to be the bearer of bad news, but you need to prepare yourself for anything. I have a friend that was putting on a special show for her boyfriend on Skype.They then threaten to make the Skype videos public unless their targets cough up compensation to the tune of 500 euros (3).
