James says he wants to raise awareness about a kidnapping epidemic in Los Angeles. He claims models are being taken off the streets and sent to camps, where they are sometimes hurt or killed.
“I’m corresponding with these women through text. I set up the time and place to meet with them, and then, typically, they aren’t able to make it. Somebody grabs them,” James says. Then, James claims he gets a call from a gang member at the camp demanding he send them gift cards to free the models. “I have saved 30-40 girls during the last year.”
