Snapchat Scam

By Matt Garforth

Don't believe you can earn £450-£55k through "modelling"... even WITH those butterflies around your head.

While we'd like to think of Snapchat as an innocent place where you can turn yourself into a puppy or vomit rainbows, it's still a social media platform that's open to a much darker side.

Girls across the UK and Ireland are receiving messages from a "modelling agency", offering work between £450 and £55,000 per shoot - and they actually look pretty legit...

The account, ACAmodels1, adds girls claiming to have seen their photos on Instagram and wants to represent them with high paying modelling gigs.

ACA Models is, in fact,  a genuine agency, and even represents former Miss Northern Ireland Leanne McDowell, who's also been approached by the scam account.

The alarm was raised after a 14-year-old girl replied with some headshots, but then the account demanded body photos - which is obviously a huge no-no to anonymous creeps online.

ACA Models have addressed the scam, urging people to not respond to 'Louise' and that it is DEFINITELY not a representative of theirs.
