Modelling Scam(Independent Models)-DANGER

Today a white and very professional sounding lady Tanya called me and told me she saw my picture on Gumtree and that I look beautiful and radiant. She asked if I ever have considered modelling. I told her no I haven't actually as I am short and wear a size 38 clothing. She asked me about my length and hair, best features and breast size. She sounded like a true modelling professional. I told her to email me more info then I will consider it. She sent me an email explaining all about it an how you get paid and so on very professional and legit looking. So she's called Independent Models. I got the email quickly - address 1. Email address is a gmail account, there is no contact tel no on and no logo. I filled in the form - What is your:
Full name, Age, Date of birth, Contact number you would like to be called on??
Alternative number contact number if you can not be reached,Where exactly in Roodepoort do you live? She said that to complete the process she will need pictures of me for every angle, and do a full body assessment in the nude for scars etc and the photographer can see me in an hour as he will also do the interview. She asked who lived with me ???? COULD THIS BE A RAPIST OR A SICK PERSON USING INNOCENT WOMEN'S PICTURES FOR PORN SITES?

    Nelmari100838 did you actually meet with her, she told us that girls want to commit suicide because she rejects them from her agency, also that she does not give her number out because these girls phone her constantly. This is so scary...

    This same lady "Tanya" contacted my sister and myself with the same questions in 2015... i figured last year it must have been human trafficking... its horrifying to think we were making plans to meet with her.
    The email she used was
    We both were unemployed and desperate for work...

    I got exactly the same call today!!!!! Oh my word, I mailed her back with all my information. And I send her photographs. She sounded so decent and honest!!!!! I have had such a bad 2015/2016. What if I am going to be targeted, or my photo's used on the Internet? I can't believe I fell for this!!!!! I am so ooh upset right now.... may all these scammers burn in hell!!!!
