To all and most impt to MODs. Earlier on there was a post by a girl who was claimed she was a victim of sexual harassment by a photographer. However she was very vague and she kept asking of anyone has similar encounters. Then a girl claiming to be a reporter for the ST came in and asked the same thing.
I replied and said that I hope the reporter is not coming in here, spread a rumor and hope that the gossip we make will yield some "news" or worse some gossip that she is using to report as the truth.
I cannot find the thread and believe it might have been deleted. However I received a pm from this reporter and want to share it with everyone. Afterall I have nothing to hide and I think this reporter shouldn't too. Hence I think I should share her intentions with everyone.
Here it is.
I read your comment, and yes, some parts are true but some parts are not. I just thought it might be worth it to try seeing if anyone responds to the thread because I need more information for the story.
But I'm not doing this to "try my luck" or to get something out of no news as you suggested.
I started out writing a story for Urban simply about girls who arrange for photoshoots online and found out from an interviewee that such things do happen.
I had to brief my editor and that's when the article got transferred to the Sunday Times, as I made clear in one of my earlier posts.
I understand that all of these seems suspicious but all I'm trying to do is help the girls that I've spoken to and find out if there are any more of such girls. If you do have any information, I would greatly appreciate it if you share it with me.
But seeing your post, I can tell that you don't think this is something credible. However, it might be wise to find out the facts first before mouthing off in the future.
Thank you for replying to the thread.
Have a good day.
