Jordyn Hagan Gaunt, 18, was contacted on Instagram by a woman claiming to be a representative from the lingerie company seeking models to sign for contracts. gt1世界播


The woman, who had the same account name as a family friend, told the Sydney teenager she would need to participate in a 'sexy' casting call via Skype to be considered. gt1世界播

'When the instructions were typed out on the screen on Skype, they asked me to take off my underwear so they could see my body type and parade around the bedroom naked,' Ms Gaunt told the Daily Telegraph. gt1世界播


'I had never done a modelling shoot before... the person asked if my boyfriend was around and if we could make out on camera. gt1世界播


'I said 'no' and felt really weirded out and said I was going to switch off the call. They told me not to worry, I had done brilliantly and I was shortlisted for a contract.' gt1世界播


Despite the odd requests, Ms Gaunt was convinced the recruiter was her friend's mother, whose daughter models, and urged two of her friends to also take part. gt1世界播


Days after her audition, Ms Gaunt's friend, a 19-year-old from Wollongong, also fell victim after being encouraged to strip naked over Skype by the fraudulent casting director. gt1世界播


The teenagers along with several other young women, have now been urged by officers to keep an eye on porn hubs for the images from their shoots. gt1世界播


'The police officer told me, 'Prepare for the bombshell, you're going to end up on porn sites',' she said. gt1世界播


'I'm terrified men will be perving on me on porn sites that I haven't agreed to go on, I feel so stupid and hate the fact I recruited friends. gt1世界播



The woman, posing as Ms Gaunt's family friend, asked her to get naked during a 'casting call' over Skype gt1世界播


Ms Gaunt said she wanted to warn other young women not to be as 'foolish' as she was in falling for the scam. gt1世界播


She said police told her there was not much they could do as it is difficult to trace anonymous offenders online. gt1世界播


The teenager said she now realised the decision was naive and hoped speaking out will prevent it from happening to others. gt1世界播


Honey Birdette founder Eloise Monaghan said the company only uses models from agencies and slammed the scammer's actions as disgraceful. gt1世界播

The casting call scam has reportedly been doing the rounds for at least three years. gt1世界播


In 2017, a man warned his Facebook friends to be weary of messages from so-called recruiters after learning of the con. gt1世界播


'So there is a scam going round that apparently has been done before,' he wrote. gt1世界播


'It consists of photographers and models being contacted to do a Skype casting call for Honey Birdette Lingerie and offering $5,000 for the successful chosen models. gt1世界播


'I would urge any models on my friends list to change your passwords.' gt1世界播
