A CHILLING dark web advert offered kidnapped British Chloe Ayling as a sex slave after her abduction.
The disturbing ad used photos of the model drugged on the floor and offered her as a sex slave for “starting bids” of $300,000 (£224,000). But what is the dark web and how did it exploit Chloe?
What happened to Chloe Ayling?
British model Chloe, 21, was drugged and stuffed in a black bag before being told she would be auctioned off on the dark web.
The mum of one was held for six days in a farmhouse.
The kidnapper was jailed in July 2018 for 16 years and nine months.
A court heard how evil Lukasz Herba tried to sell Chloe as a sex slave, and put a disturbing advert on the dark web.
Speaking exclusively to The Sun, Chloe has since told how she’s determined to “forge a new path now that the world can see I was telling the truth”.
She has now been announced as one of the housemates entering the Celebrity Big Brother House this year.
What is the dark web advert?
Herba, who has lived in Sandwell, West Mids, gathered the sick pictures together and made a calling card for the internet.
He tried to sell Chloe as a sex slave for a “starting bid” of £224,000, according to an email sent following her kidnapping.
It included details of the mum’s age, measurements, where she was being held and even the date the “auction” would take place.
It was sent in a garbled email, written in broken English, along with sickening pictures of Chloe dazed on the floor and one of her wedged into a suitcase.
The email read: “Did you know chloe ayling has been kidnapped in italy and is now for sale by russian mafia ??? see attachament.
“i been sending wit codes but ppl dunno how to open so i send unprotected now.
“it will be f***n hot mateeee.”
The ad said “specific targets” can be found – for more money.
It also read the girls – who can be “transported globally” – are seen by a doctor who will test for sexually transmitted diseases and whether they are “pure”.
The advert states that “EU delivery is free” but may “take time”.
It has been suggested the gang let Chloe, from Coulsdon, South London, go after realising she had a two-year-old son.

What is the dark web?
The dark web has become a big problem for global law enforcement agencies.
Deep web content does not appear on search engines. They are accessed via passwords and authorisation.
And so the dark web is a network of untraceable online activity and websites on the internet.
They cannot be found using search engines and to access them you need to use specific software, configurations or have authorisation.
They are used by lots of different people to keep their web activity hidden.
