We got a letter this morning from someone who used to be on the Hussie Models roster. She’s since moved on with her life and put that nightmare behind her. But she wanted to share her story with us in hopes that it might prevent other girls from falling for the same scam she did.
I loved your article about Riley Reynolds of Hussie Models and I thought I would let you know the real truth about him. He claims to be a legit agent but he’s far from it. While I was with his joke of an agency he booked me for several privates. He would send me out for 1-hour jobs at $400 and then he would charge me $100 for booking fees for that job, so I would only end up getting paid $300 for that. I was young and stupid. I had no idea what he was doing was wrong. It wasn’t until after I left and got with a new agent that I found out these collectors he was sending me to bang, were hooking jobs and illegal. I’m happy to finally be away from him. I just hope that other girls will Google him and find out the truth before falling for his “free trip to Miami” scam like I did.
After getting her email I contacted her and this is how our conversation went.
How did you meet Riley?
I answered an ad on craigslist that said ironically, Hot Girls Wanted, and offered a free trip to Miami. I was young and stupid and didn’t question why some random guy would be willing to fly me out to Miami for free to take a few modeling pictures. I realize now just how stupid that was.
Had you seen the Netflix documentary before going to meet him?
No. I hadn’t heard of it. I only watched it after I had already met Riley and was in Florida. One of the other girls in the apartment told me about it and we watched it on her phone together. Had I known about it beforehand I would have never flown to Florida to work with him.
Did you know you were going to Florida to do porn?
No. He asked if I was okay with light nudity and I said sure. I mean I have no problem with my body. But I didn’t realize he meant at the time full on porn. I wasn’t okay with that.
When did you suspect something wasn’t right?
Just before I left he kept going on and on about making sure I had 3 forms of ID. I don’t know. Something about that just seemed odd to me. Still, I didn’t listen to the warning bells going off in my head and got on the flight anyway.
When I got there he met me at the airport and took me to what he called the female model house. It was really just a nasty apartment. He asked me if I had any money on me. I did so he said to give it to him and he would put it in him safe because it’s not a good idea to have it in the model house. It wouldn’t be safe. That made sense to me so I gave him the little cash I had on me. Next, he asked for my id so he could make copies of it. He said after he would give it back. Giving him my money and id was the stupidest thing I could have ever done.
It wasn’t until we got to the model house though that I knew how much trouble I was really in. He told me that he booked me for my first scene. I didn’t even know what that word meant so I asked him to explain.
I was horrified to hear what he expected me to do, which was a full-on IR B/G. I protested. I agreed to come to Florida for some modeling, light nudity only. I wanted to leave but Riley said I couldn’t until I paid him back for the money he was out for the flight. Again I protested. He never said anything about me having to cover the cost of the flight. His ad said “free trip to Miami”. Free means free, not free for now until you get here and can give me the money back.
His nice playful demeanor turned ugly real quick. He ended up leaving not to much after that, reminding me when he did that I better be ready for my shoot tomorrow and I better be on time.
Teressa showed me to my room which I was sharing with 3 other girls. I was sleeping on a mattress on the floor, that was dirty and had no sheets. The room was a disaster, there were clothes and makeup everywhere.
Why didn’t you call your family to help you get back home?
I thought about it but I knew I would never hear the end of it if I did. They warned me before I left not to come that there was no way the offer for a modeling job was legit. I was being scammed. I couldn’t very well call them just hours after I left to tell them they were right. I mean looking back now I probably should have done just that, but I was young and stupid I guess.
I cried myself to sleep only to be awoken a few hours later when one of the girls came in drunk off her ass. I spent the rest of the night listening to her throwing up in the bathroom.
The next day I woke up and had to either go through with the porn scene or call my parents for help to get home.
With the help of one of the other girls in the apartment, I was good and wasted by the time noon rolled around, my call time and went through with my first scene. I don’t remember any of it. And that’s how I got into porn.
I pretty much stayed drunk for the next few weeks and did any scene he told me to do. Well, what I thought were scenes. I would later learn that not all of his jobs were legit scenes. A lot of times they were low end escorting jobs he would send us girls on.
I was too stupid to know the difference. He would explain that I wasn’t getting as much money for these type of scenes because they only took an hour of my time and they were for collectors. I was stupid. I really didn’t know better. It wasn’t until much later that I figured out he had been pimping me out.
And that’s my experience with Riley Reynolds. He’s a lowlife. If you are reading this now I only hope it helps you to avoid falling for his tricks. Stay as far away from him as you can.
We appreciate this poor girl for telling us her story. I hope that others will too. Maybe we can once and for all put a stop to guys like him in this business.
By the way, anyone ever notice the international escorting ads on the Hussie Models website? Check this out.
