Nine Women Held Captive After Being Recruited For Fictional ‘Big Brother’

September 10, 2009

Turkey (ChattahBox) – Nine women have been rescued from a home in the resort town of Riva after being held for two months for what they originally believed to be a reality TV show.

The women were interviewed and accepted for what they believed to be a reality show similar to ‘Big Brother’, where they would be required to live for at least two months on camera in the house in Riva.

Each of the women, one of which is a teenager that sources say could be as young as 15, moved in, and quickly became aware of the discrepancies in the story.

When they tried to leave they were told they had agreed to pay a fine of 50,000 Turkish Lira ($33,000 USD) if they left. When some insisted they were threatened with bodily harm.

According to authorities, the women were taped doing various activities, such as playing by the pool in bikinis. But they were also taped nude, and the images and video were sold on the Internet.

Several men have been arrested, and were later released pending trial. All were in the house at all time with the women, but are not believed to have orchestrated the plot, or sold the images online.

The ringleader is still being sought.
