(Newser) – Police rescued nine young women who had been lured to a Turkish villa where they were duped into believing they were part of a Big Brother-style reality show and photographed naked, reports the BBC and local media. The women stayed in the villa for 2 months, initially believing they were part of a reality series called Somebody's Watching You, according to Sky News. They quickly became suspicious because they were instructed to do little more than fight each other, wear bikinis and dance by the pool.

The women were reluctant to leave because they were told they faced hefty fines if they quit. Military police stormed the home after they were contacted by worried relatives who were not allowed to talk to the women. Photos of the women naked were sold online, according to local press reports. One man has been arrested, but police believe several others were involved.
