A MUM posed as a 12-year-old girl on Snapchat to catch out a pervert posing as a fake modelling agency to groom her teenage daughter.
The woman, from Wrexham, regularly checks her daughter’s phone and was sickened to find a number of inappropriate messages from an unknown person.

Her daughter was targeted by someone on Snapchat using the name New Faces Models which is similar to legitimate London modelling firm New Face Models.
She was told she had an “amazing face” and that they were “really impressed” with an image she had sent on Snapchat, reports Daily Post.
The person also said the company does not “deal with parents” until a model has been offered work with them.
They then offered a video interview on Snapchat for a modelling position.
She was later asked if she was wearing “something that somewhat shows off your body and figure” despite saying she was just 13 years old.
The person then told her that she was a “ready-made model” and her body “looks amazing”.
Her shocked mother told Daily Post: “It scared the life out of me how easily it can be done and how this person can so easily get into the mind of a child.
SO MUCH WORSE
“It’s my child’s dream to become a model, and for her to be exploited like that has knocked me sick.
“If I hadn’t seen those messages, I believe it could have been so much worse. I dread to think what could have happened.”
She then added the same account under a new Snapchat profile and posed as a 12-year-old girl.
The mum eventually revealed they had been talking to her daughter and said she will report their account to the police.

She added: “I said I was just 12 and they were still happy to try to get me on the camera.
“I genuinely believe it’s a predator who is grooming young girls.”
A spokesman for North Wales Police said: “North Wales Police can confirm that complaints have been made and the force is looking into the matter.”
A spokesman for Blue Rooms Limited, which runs New Face Models, added: “I can confirm to the best of our knowledge that the individual mentioned claiming to be from New Face Models on Snapchat has no affiliation at all with our company The Blue Rooms (London) Limited.”
