#AceNewsReport – Jan.29: Washington state prosecutors are using state consumer protection laws to go after a man — already facing multiple criminal charges of rape — that they claim spent years misleading women about his job, and even his gender, with the goal of misleading women into sleeping with him in exchange for a non-existent shot at stardom.
The complaint [PDF] recently by the office of Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson accuses a man named Michael-Jon Matthew Hickey of using a string of fake profiles and bogus talent agencies to convince women on Facebook that he was a talent recruiter for the adult entertainment industry.
Prosecutors say Hickey not only fabricated a number of agency names — like “New Seattle Talent,” “West Coast Talent Inc.,” “Casting Seattle,” “FMH Modeling,” “Seattle Talent,” and “Active Entertainment” — but that he also posed as a female talent recruiter — named “Deja…
