Sean Boies Posed As Victoria's Secret Rep To Get Underwear Photos From Women: Cops

A man in Iowa City, Iowa, is accused of posing as a Victoria's Secret representative in order to get women to send him underwear photos.

Police said Sean Boies, 29, used a phishing scheme to get IDs and passwords of University of Iowa students

He then used that information to create a profile on Qualtrics, a web-based survey platform that he used to create surveys he would send to female students, the Iowa Press-Citizen reports.

In one survey sent last January, Boies claimed to represent the Victoria's Secret lingerie company and allegedly asked interested women to upload pictures of themselves in their bras and panties in hopes of being flown to Miami for a photo shoot.

Two women submitted photos, the Associated Press reports.

Police said Boies admitted that he created the survey specifically to receive pictures of women.

He also admitted sending a second survey in March promising a $25 Victoria's Secret gift card in return for information, according to KCRG.com

Boies allegedly admitted to police he never sent those promised cards.

Boies is charged with two counts of identity theft under $1,000 and unauthorized computer access, KWWL.com reports. He was booked and released Thursday morning at the Johnson County Jail.
