WHEN NUDES ARE STOLEN: Presenter & Model – Jess Davies
Presenter and Model, Jess Davies’ new venture took her down a path to the dark corners of the internet.
In a new BBC Three documentary When Nudes Are Stolen Jess traces where and how her pictures are being used - and explains the effect it's had on her life. Speaking in the documentary, Jess says:
“I can barely remember the first time it happened.
I got a message on social media, telling me someone was using photos of me and pretending to be me online.
At first I thought it would be a one-off, but it's nearly ten years since that first message and I'm still getting them on an almost weekly basis.
Either they rip off my whole identity or use photos of me under a false name, then they use those profiles to try to get money from unsuspecting men. They generally find out who I really am after doing a reverse image search and coming across my real-life social media profiles.”
