Hi, it sounds like Rafael has tricked you to give the digital trace for nothing. If that happens, then you're stuck in the game as you no longer have any chance to blackmail him again. The right option for you is to force Rafael to quit, not to accept his money.
Do you have any save before you talk to Rafael? If not, then there's nothing you can do except to restart new game and learn a mistake not to accept money from Rafael. As a matter of fact, don't take any bribe in the game if you're given option as that's always lead to horrible result.
