Garcia admitted that he and Pratt were the lead recruiters for two pornographic websites: GirlsDoPorn and GirlsDoToys. Their target market was 18- to 20-year-old women. The pair created Craigslist advertisements, along with fake websites and email addresses, to convince victims they were applying to work as models. Only after the victims responded to the advertisements would Garcia and Pratt disclose that they were actually seeking women for pornographic video shoots, according to charging documents.
The FBI recently raised the reward to $50,000 in hopes that someone will come forward with tips and information to help advance the case.
“We know there are people that are helping Pratt,” said McNamara. “The hope for this campaign is somebody sees him, knows him, recognizes him, and contacts law enforcement.”
