Is this fraud/blackmail?

A friend of mine is wondering if he can sue his ex GF and get child support payments back. She lied about being pregnant and blackmailed him into making payments

Basically his ex-GF claimed to have gotten pregnant with his twins. He sent her money every month for the babies and has now found out there never were any babies.

He lives in NY and she lives in OH
He’s been sending 300$ for 4months

She promised him pictures and info on the children but never sent him anything. It was always, send me a bit more and you can see your babies

Once he told her that he was through sending money until he got to see pictures of his children she responded with "ahh… so your done helping …. got it …. no point in me sending you the pics than"
