Tonight, a message for parents to be watchful for a scam working it's way across the valley.

Someone has created a fake profile asking for pictures of underage girls, under the guise of a local modeling agency.

The Facebook profile has now been taken down twice.

Someone created it back in August acting as a representative for I.M.D.

I.M.D. is a modeling and talent agency in Nedford that has clients that work with companies ranging from Nike, Target, even Abercrombie.

The say the person behind the scam is posing as someone working for the company looking for nude or bikini type shots from underage girls.

The owner of imd says that's not how the company works.

 

While the profile has been taken down, the agency says they have received reports of clients still receiving e-mail from the person.

 

That e-mail address is This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

If you receive an e-mail from that account you should delete it.

The company says they never will scout randomly online and most of their clients have gone to them.
