Dangerous popularity: how instagram stars get involved in prostitution and scamsPictolic
Glamorous beauties with perfect figures are admired by fans, but become targets for scammers and pimps. They have millions of followers on their social media pages, and every day they receive hundreds of messages from both secret admirers and deceivers. Models are offered lucrative contracts and photo shoots, but there is danger behind such invitations. Girls can fall into the clutches of the owners of elite escorts, where it is not so easy to get out, or run into fraudulent financial schemes.
Instagram models from the UK say that they face daily attempts to lure them into the ranks of elite prostitutes. The girls try to spread this information so that others do not fall on the hook of scammers. Tempting offers of untold wealth and a dizzying career often turn out to be fake.
Here are the stories of several British Instagram stars who almost fell victim to cheaters. Their popularity almost led them into the field of sex services.
Borbala Kreutz, 30, regularly shares her glamorous life with hundreds of thousands of followers. Racy photos gain a lot of likes, but cause close attention of hunters for beautiful women. In addition to dubious offers about photo shoots and ghostly model contracts, the beauty constantly receives offers to have sex for money. And this is despite the fact that the woman is engaged to actor Will Palmer (Will Palmer).
Attacks of scammers and perverts became more frequent during the lockdown. Borbala is simply flooded with messages from scam photographers and "papiki". Recently, the models offered an exclusive photo shoot, promising to pay all the costs, but after checking the agent, it turned out that it was fake.
The beauty has repeatedly heard stories about how girls are drugged and make candid photo shoots with them in a deranged state. She encourages Instagram users not to be naive and not to trust strangers.
Borbala is written by men who want to meet her for money. She was offered amounts from $ 500 to $ 5,000 (from 39,000 to 390,000 rubles), as well as a vacation in Dubai. At the same time, the "papiki" claim that they do not demand anything in return – only her company. Most of them are rich Arabs who think that a British woman works as an escort.
Some girls agree to such offers and are happy to travel on private planes and relax in luxury hotels in exchange for the favor of the rich. However, Borbala considers such "deals" to be real prostitution, and would never get involved in them, even if she were single.
Despite the fact that the page of 25-year-old model Victoria Clay (Victoria Clay) is subscribed to only 50,000 users, she is also harassed by perverts with offers to fly to Dubai or send photos of her feet. The girl twice became a victim of deceivers.
One day, she was contacted by an alleged representative of a fashion brand with a request to become the face of their giveaway, in which the bag will be raffled off. All that was required of Victoria was to post a photo on her Instagram page with information about the contest. The model agreed, and two months later the winning girl wrote to her and complained that she had not received the prize. Victoria tried to contact the company, but to no avail. As a result, the model was forced to buy a bag for 50 pounds (about 5300 rubles) and send it to the winner, so as not to spoil her reputation.
Another company offered Victoria 300 pounds (about 32,000 rubles) for the fact that she would wear their dress and take a picture in it for Instagram. Two years have passed, and the promised reward beauty has not received.
31-year-old Vicki Duong from Canada was so tired of alluring offers that she decided to fall for one of the tricks and see what happens. She paid 23 pounds (about 2,500 rubles) for the jumpsuit, which actually cost only 4 pounds (about 420 rubles). The model called the company to account.
Vicky asks the girls not to believe the offers of profitable, at first glance, deals from dubious companies. As a result, brands earn popularity and money, and influencers are left with nothing. Worse, dishonest sellers can also extort large sums of money from their victims.
The page of the former participant of the popular British show "Love Island" ("Love Island") Charlie Brake (Charlie Brake) is subscribed to 500,000 users. The guy also became a victim of fraud: his personal data was stolen to profit at the expense of his fans.
The 26-year-old Briton began to be contacted by subscribers who claimed that he was running scams with investment investments. People asked if he was really making these tempting deals. The indignation of the actor had no boundaries, but it is almost impossible to punish the scammers who trade in the Network. Charlie had to constantly respond to messages and convince subscribers not to believe false information.
Scammers are increasingly using social networks to extort money from users. Here are the 5 main ways to cheat, the most popular on the Internet.
