I was recently contacted by a female model and was asked to message an email to [email protected] so i did, and days later received a message saying he's a freelance with seventeen magazine and needs my home address, number, and where i work. I asked very respectfully to prove that he is with seventeen magazine and he replied, " you can't be doubting me if you want to work in this company", and "You are not forced to do the shoot and are not the only model contacted".  Can i report this at all?

Sounds like a scammer to me.  I'd consider reporting this to the magazine itself and forward them the emails.
