Bogus Modelling Concern: Instagram



We have been made aware this morning by a Staffordshire school that there is a concern regarding Instagram and a bogus modelling agency grooming children.


West Midlands Police have advised that students at a number of Secondary schools in our area have been contacted by a bogus modelling agency called Starlett or 'Scarlett Bookings Agency. Initially they request photos of the child in their favourite outfit, then a bikini shot and finally they ask for a naked photo so that they can analyse their body type coupled with threats if they are not forthcoming.
