Suspicion of being a spy!

Former Playboy model Victoria Bonya, 37, said she was questioned by officers at an airport in Los Angeles on suspicion of being a spy.

Victoria Bonya said:

"That was a real blow. I thought I was going down and they would deport me. Instead of asking some real questions, the officer decided to talk about our President. Finding out everything about my position, he started talking about the KGB."

She was asked if she was a member of the secret services.

Officials began grilling the blonde bombshell, asking if she was a member of the secret services.

Bonya said she finally managed to get away after she showed the officers her social media accounts.

Probably they just wanted to spend some time with pretty lady!

She shared her story online and her followers responded with their own views and experiences of the customs service.
