This is just too sad and it angers me. I'm not sure how he got a way with it for so long. What's even more disturbing is that he is relatively a well known designer.
For us models and actors that freelance using craigslist and other similar services, we need to take every precaution and always trust our intuition. I once drove to an audition in Los Angeles and ended up at a house. This isn't all too uncommon, but usually when this happens there are casting signs, open doors and other actors around. The house was quiet and I felt uneasy. I waited in the car for about a half hour and drove away. It very well could have been nothing, but it wasn't worth risking my safety to find out.
So just a quick reminder to be careful.
