Boies Will Be Boies

University of Iowa police allege that Sean Boies, 29, stole login passwords from two students to set up two online profiles with a survey company. The profiles claimed he was a Victoria’s Secret model agent looking for new models. He invited women to send him photos of themselves in their bras and panties, and “winners” would be selected for a “private photo shoot” in Florida. Boies was charged with two counts of identity theft, and one count of unauthorized computer access, all misdemeanors. The survey pages netted him more than 6,200 responses over a period of months — but only two women sent Boies the requested photos.
