It started with a woman named Deja Stwalley, who claimed to be a porn recruiter. 

This recruiter reached out to young women, ages 19 and 20.  

"You have the right look," the recruiter allegedly told these women, according to Stranger reporter Sydney Brownstone. "It’s my job to get women into the porn industry safely. I exist because I know there are scammers out there."

First, though, the recruiter told the women that they would have to go see her ex-boyfriend, a photographer named Matty. He was great, the recruiter said. 

But Matty told the women that they would have to have un-filmed sex with him as part of the audition.

"Several women felt violated after, but they couldn’t put their finger on why," Brownstone said. Brownstone spoke with Bill Radke about her story about this Seattle man, who she names.  

The women never heard back from anyone in the porn industry.
