A BRITISH model was put up for auction on the internet with a starting bid of USD$353,000 (A$445,000) after being kidnapped and drugged when she showed up to a sham photoshoot in Milan.

A Polish national, with British residence, has been arrested on suspicion of kidnapping for extortion purposes, according to reports, after the 20-year-old woman was returned to the British consulate in Milan.

As reported by the Italian media outlet, Corriere Della Sera, Herba requested the model for an alleged photo shoot in Milan.

Police say they are still unclear whether the kidnappers were running an online scam to con "buyers" out of money or whether they actually meant to sell her on. After the 20-year-old arrived, she was drugged, stuffed in a bag and loaded into the back of a auto and driven to a farmhouse near Turin around 120 miles.

The farmhouse in Borgial where the model was held captive.

Investigations in the case are ongoing in Italy, Poland and the United Kingdom.

Lukasz Pawel Herba has been jailed for trying to sell the woman on the dark web.

Detectives are unclear as to whether Herba was serious about auctioning his victim or if it was simply a threat meant to extort 300,000 euros in Bitcoin from the model's agent and family.

The mysterious online criminal syndicate behind the kidnapping of a British model has boasted of its "huge generosity" in letting her go "because she is a mother".

Italian police stage a reconstruction after learning that the woman was transported in a duffel bag. He and his partners had chose to find a way to release her back to her home.

The kidnapper was captured by police as he was accompanying the model to the British Consulate in Milan, according to the Telegraph.

The woman was then kept handcuffed to a wooden chest of drawers in a bedroom for six days until she was released.
