“The Free Speech Coalition, the Canoga Park–based trade group representing porn’s largest producers, recently issued an “industry alert” this week, warning performers of the alleged fraudsters: “A woman is approached, usually by phone, by someone claiming to represent, or have access to, Penthouse or another publication. The person may claim to be a photographer or an agent, or alternately a model who wants to recommend a photographer or agent. Significant money is promised.

The scam has also been reported in Florida, New York and Arizona, according to the FSC.”
