Playboy model's chilling warning to young wannabes

A MODEL  has bravely spoken out about being secretly filmed taking part in a sex act in an attempt to protect young models from the same fate.

April Summers met voyeur Naushad Faruk at a party in 2011 where he was filming for a PR company. Farul then built up Summers' trust by putting her in contact with valuable members of the modelling industry.

Waiving her lifelong right to anonymity as a victim of a sex crime, Summers has described how Faruk became obsessive,  and invited her to take part in what would later transpire to be a fake shoot for the now-closed Loaded men's magazine.

Faruk manipulated Summers into stripping for the bogus spread, and secretly filmed her with a camera hidden in his watch as she took part in a sex act.

When Summers called her contact at the magazine to check they were happy with the results, she realised Faruk had duped her.

Faruk then threatened Summers by sending a clip of the explicit video to her on Facebook alongside the message: "'TBC [To be continued]".

"What happens next to up to you."

Summers contacted the police, and officers discovered the footage on Faruk's computer.

She told the Mail Online that the shoot caused her to lose trust in others and she became so "terrified" of leaving the house that she had to take medication to cope.

Writing on Facebook, Miss Summers told her followers:  "I just want to take the time to say first thank you to all my fans who have supported me and for your kind messages regarding the story about me in the News today.

"It is a sensitive subject and was difficult for me to finally speak out. I am glad I have finally spoken out and can help and warn other young models starting out in this industry."

Faruk was convicted of three counts of voyeurism and two of perverting the course of justice, and handed a 42 month jail sentence, and issued with a 12-year restraining order against Miss Summers and another woman.

Investigating officer, Detective Constable Rob Jones, told the Ham and High: "This case shows that if someone threatens to release 'revenge porn' into the public domain they will be dealt with robustly, not only by the police but also by the courts as is demonstrated by this sentence."
