Posters found on the Benedict College campus advertising for models are a trap for sex trafficking, the school’s president warned in a social media post Friday night.
“Do not respond to this – this is a trap!” President Roslyn Clark Artis wrote on Facebook. “It’s called sex trafficking and it is a crime. Please, do not fall for this. For your safety, do not respond to this! If you see these on our campus or in our community, tear them down. Each of you is precious to me and I need you to protect yourselves from these predators!!”
The flyers say a group called BLW Modeling is looking for female models of “all ages, races, heights and sizes” and provides an email address and phone number to contact.
Never miss a local story.
A call to the phone number listed on the flyer Saturday morning reached a voice recording identifying the line as BLW Models and saying the line is for “tech support.”
One person who commented on Artis’ Facebook post reported “seeing these posters a lot around campus.”
Artis said campus security has been instructed to remove the posters, as she advised everyone to do.
