Fake Prostitutes are Stealing Photos and Luring Men to Send Them Money

You may think that identity theft online does not really happen until it happens to you. Sometimes, you think it is just a way for people to keep you from going on to Facebook and getting hooked on your phone. But in reality, identity theft can be a terrible experience.

People who steal identity can impersonate another person for a number of reasons and none of these reasons are good. Sometimes the thief steals an identity to destroy someone else’s reputation. Sometimes it is to make a purchase. Or sometimes, it is to ask for money from other people.

Recently, a model and one of our friends in WhenInManila.com, Sheila Snow, got some of her photos stolen and used to create fake accounts of women that seem to be fake prostitutes who lure men into sending them money.

Here are some of the photos stolen from Sheila’s account.

Two fake accounts, Lovely Cait and Cait Borja, were created using the stolen photos.

Apparently, the fake identities pretending to be Sheila are “walkers” – a euphemism for prostitutes.

The fake account even posts a photo of an alleged threesome.

What is even more disturbing is that these fake accounts are interacting with people online, luring men into sending them money.
