We’ve all heard about online predators, but their techniques are as varied as the cowards themselves. Some men use legitimate websites for models and photographers, for instance, to place themselves close to attractive young women. Twenty-year-old Hayley Stewart was brave enough to tell me her story that began with a fake modelling agent and ended with rape. She hopes other women will come forward if they’ve also been assaulted.
Her story comes on the heels of a Vancouver man pleading guilty to secretly video taping women he contacted through the website Model Mayhem as they changed their clothes for a bogus fashion shoot.
