Mother issues warning to parents as a predator claiming to be a model agent messages her 13-yr-old daughter

A horrified mother in the UK has issued a warning to both children and parents after her daughter was approached by a predator on social media prenteding to be from a modelling agency.

According to The Daily Mail newspaper, the 13-year-old from Wrexham in Wales, was approached by someone using the name of a modelling agency, on Snapchat.

The shocking incident which has prompted the girl’s mother to tell her story, came about in January, when her daughter was approached by the alleged predator.

The Daily Mail say the concerned mother discoverd what was going on when she checked her daughter’s phone.

It is understood that the girls mother got further insight into what was going on when she set up an account prenteding to be a 12-year-old girl.

In a series of shocking messages, the fake modelling agency sent a number of messages asking the young girl about her appearance and what she was wearing.

The girl was also asked to send photos of her wearing revealing clothes ‘that showed off her figure’, despite her profile stating that she was only 13 years old.

She was also told repeatedly how good she looked and she had what it took to be a model.

However in an even more sickening twist, the shocked mum discovered that her daughter was asked to take part in a Snapchat video interview, but she was immediately informed that she wouldn’t be able to see or hear the supposed modelling agency through the camera as it was locked.

They also said that all questions would be sent via text before asking her what she was wearing.

It is also believed that the individuals involved asked the girl did she ever drink or smoke cigarettes, before once again telling her how ‘great she looked.’

Although the girl did ask for an address of the agency, the individuals said they couldn’t hand out an address to unsigned models.

The girl was then informed by the supposed agency that they would get in touch with her within the week and was told that she had a good chance of getting a modelling role.

Following the incident the girl’s mother then created a fake profile pretending to be a 12-year-old girl.

Upon creating the profile the girl’s mother said she was asked the same line of questions and was then asked to send photos to show them what she was wearing.

However the angry mother was then confronted after she revealed her identity via a message, with the supposed company then accusing her of harassment.

They also tried to claim that they were a legitimate modelling agency and they did nothing wrong.

Meanwhile North Wales police have confirmed to The Daily Mail that an investigation into the incident is currently ongoing.
