ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - Women hear lots of weird things when they go to bars, but an offer some women are getting is flat-out creepy.
"She approaches us and asks us if we are interested in being models," Tracy Lord said.
Lord says it happened to her and her friends in mid-September. Not once but twice.
Each time she said it was the same scenario: a woman in her early 20s approached them saying her boyfriend was a photographer.
"It just really seemed like they were trying to get us to go with them," she said.
Lord said the first time was outside Imbibe in Nob Hill.
She said the girl came up to the friends by herself saying her boyfriend was waiting in the truck.
The second time was in Downtown near the Library Bar & Grill.
"Her boyfriend was actually out of the car, and she pointed him out," Lord said. "He was about 10 to 15 feet behind her and said that he was a photographer."
The ladies were out on the town for a bachelorette party.
Lord said she's not sure if they were targeted, but they had been drinking and definitely stood out.
"We were all dressed up in dresses and heels, and my friend had a sash on, the bride to be," she said.
The group was not sure what the end game was of the girl or the boyfriend photographer, but they did not believe it was legitimate.
"It's not as if this girl came up like with cards or she was professionally dressed," Lord continued. "There was nothing professional about it or legitimate about the situation."
Lord said she and her friends never felt like they were in immediate danger so they did not call police. It wasn't until later that what happened started to sink in.
"As we continued to discuss it and think about the possible consequences of it is when we realized that it was possibly a dangerous situation," she said.
KRQE News 13 checked with the Albuquerque Police Department to see if its officers had heard of this ruse. The response was no, but that could be because like Lord and her friends, others have not reported it.
