Police say British-Polish Lukasz Herba tried to sell Chloe online for £270,000
One of her kidnappers then showed her two knives to make it clear her life was one the line.
Her captors revealed they were part of an online organisation called “Black Death” and vowed to sell her off to depraved fiends if her agent didn’t cough up a £270,000 ransom.
The kidnapper’s ransom note even perversely claimed the ordeal would “kickstart” the model’s career.
“I was in shock. That will always be the worst day of my life,” the model told the Mail On Sunday.
The men told her she would probably be trafficked to the Middle East where once her buyer became bored of her she would be fed to the tigers.
She has also hit out at those who doubt her version of events, claiming she did everything she could to survive.
“People need to understand that everything I did was so I could survive,” she said.

“So many lies have been said. But I know the truth, the police know the truth and it will all come out at the trial.”
She has now told in graphic detail how her life changed forever after she landed in Italy for a routine “photoshoot.”
She said: “I walked through the open door and put my luggage down. I was expecting to hear people setting up the shoot but there was silence.
“It was a bit creepy but then I saw a door with a sign on it which said ‘Studio’. As I reached for the handle, I felt an arm come around my neck from behind me.
“I tried to scream but a gloved hand was covering my mouth and my nose. I panicked because I couldn’t breathe and I brought my hands up to my face. I was trying to get his fingers off my nose and I managed to catch one breath.”
She told how another man then stepped in front of her wearing a black ski-mask with a syringe in his right hand.

“This was my worst nightmare. I didn’t know what was in the syringe. I was panicking. I thought they were going to rob or rape me. I was terrified beyond words.
“They dragged me to the floor. I just gave up – I thought, ‘I’m not going to get out of here alive.”
Chloe said after that everything went black.
She later learned they had taken compromising photographs of her whilst she was unconscious which were posted on the dark web to entice bidders.
Polish national Lukasz Pawel Herba, 30, has been arrested by police and reportedly confessed to the “elaborate” kidnapping.
His home in Oldbury, in the West Midlands, has been raided by British officers.
Last night, Milan magistrate Dr Giovanna Campanile ruled he was “highly dangerous to society” and should remain in custody ahead of his trial later this year.

She was released after six days when Herba took her the British consulate. It’s been reported she was let go because “she had a child”.
The Polish national remains in custody and is awaiting trial. He admitted his role in the kidnap plot, but said he was manipulated by Romanian gangsters.
Cosmo De Rose, the solicitor acting for Herba, said his client had not made any statement implicating Chloe in the kidnap.
When asked if Herba had ever alleged that Chloe had taken part in a conspiracy, he replied: “No. This has not emerged. Absolutely not. No, no, no.”
A source close to the prosecutor’s office in Milan said investigations are ongoing but Chloe’s story was ‘credible’.
Chloe also gave a full 3,500 statement to Italian cops where she revealed the true horror of her kidnapping.

She said: “The place that they held me was an apartment with two rooms. I was forced to stay on the floor of one in a sleeping bag.
“As I said when I regained consciousness I had the impression of being in the boot of car. I realised someone had put cuffs on my wrists and ankles. On my mouth there was tape.
“They had put me in a bag closed with a zip. There was only a little hole allowing me to breathe. I tried to open the hole. The boot was the kind where you have access from the front of car but there is a cover when closed stops you from seeing contents from outside.”
She said when the car stopped, two people got out and opened the boot.
“I saw for a brief instance the face of one of these, the driver. I didn’t see the face of the second person,” she said.

“The driver is not the man who brought me to the consulate. They forced me to put my hands in this bag and closed it. Neither spoke to me.
“After this first stop we carried on for 45 minutes when we stopped for a second time because of my cries and movement in the back.
“One of the men got out of the car hooded with a balaclava and gave me some water to drink from a plastic bottle straight into my mouth.
He took the handcuffs off and tried to put them behind my back which I opposed.
He said if I didn’t agree I would get a second injection. The threat scared me and I agreed to be cuffed.”
THE Black Death claims to carry out kidnappings, extortion, bombings, arms deals and assassinations.
The shadowy crime group was supposedly set up in Eastern Europe in the mid-1990s.
The group’s material can be found on the dark web — websites accessible only with special software.
Black Death boasts it kidnaps “specific targets for your needs” and guarantees free “EU delivery.”
