Escorts and Scam: Beware Of Not Becoming A Victim Of Fraud

As in any other industry in which there may be money involved the escort services business can be a prolific field for scam and fraud.

The escort services business makes it easy, and it can affect both ends:  the potential clients as well as the potential escort girls/boys who are working or intend to work as escorts.

The client, the escort or the escort agency you are about to deal with can be a phony or a badly intended person trying to take money from you! So, there are some situations that have happened before that you should be aware of so as to be careful and avoid being a victim of a fraud, robbery or a scam escort agency.

FAKE ESCORT AGENCIES TRYING TO SCAM INNOCENT CLIENTS

Practically all or most escort agencies work through their websites and many of them only provide email contact, there is no address (and sometimes not even a telephone number) just an email or contact form to make the reservations and pay for the services. The anonymity of Internet makes it very easy to open the doors of fraud. This is why we always recommend hiring through a reputable or renowned escort agency with years of trajectory.

Some common frauds fake escort agencies make are:Travel scam and advanced payment. Some escort agencies offer girls abroad. Let´s suppose you are traveling to Europe and are seeking the companion of a European girl, or a girl from Northern Countries to accompany you.  Basically, the escort girls will be meeting you in a different country than their own, for example in your own city or country or at a meeting point on your trip to Venice, Paris or Geneva. As the escorts travel expenses shall be paid by the client, they may ask you for and advance payment of the travel expenses and sometimes even of part of the escorts fee. Unless you have references of the escort agency you are hiring through, we recommend not to do so, once your payment has been sent, most chances are that the escort will never appear and you will find yourself alone and without that considerable amount on your pocket.Overly edited escort photos or directly fake photos. This is one of the most common frauds of real but fraudulent escort agencies. You visit their website and their pictures galleries seem to be a dream come true. Your eyes can´t probably believe such beauties exist! And your eyes are right…many of those escorts agencies – that do so much harm to the business field of escort agencies- post pictures that have nothing to do with the real escorts working for them. Yes, you will meet your escort, but she/he will have nothing to do with what you saw on the photographs, because the photos have been overly retouched or just don´t belong to the person who goes to the desired encounter.  Not as serious as the previously mentioned fraud, but still a disappointing waste of time, illusion and money.Premium priced phone numbers. It is very easy to become victim of such scam. It´s simple, you visit the escort agency´s website, feel tempted by some of the featured escorts and decide to give them a call and find out and maybe even book your desired fantasy date. What happens here is that the contact telephone number will be a special rate number, where you will be charged expensive phone tariffs instead of the regular phone call rates. With some luck, you may find yourself being offered some sort of phone sex or hot-line services. They will try to engage you in an erotic conversation after telling you that unfortunately no escort girl is available to date at the moment but they will still be pleased to talk to you!  Every second they keep you hooked at the line, will be money going their way. So, a good tip is to verify the regular pre-fixes of the area where the agency claims to be located at and check if those belong to regular services or to high priced ones.Clients are asked to pay before being allowed to see who is currently online and available. Lonely anxious clients in need of finding an escort right at the moment feel tempted to pay a small fee so as not to waste time trying to find someone available at the moment. Just think about it, with so many escort agencies and independent escorts willing to make a first contact for free, why would you have to pay to see what you might find?

These are just some examples, but the list can go on and on, so be careful before providing you personal information and your credit card number, as we keep recommending our visitors and friends, seek for an established agency who has already built a reputation. How can you know that? Spend some minutes browsing online, there are forums and sites where scams and frauds are exposed and regarding a good agency, you will surely find testimonials. Besides, you need to use some common sense, the more information about them the escort agencies provide, the more chances to verify their reliability you have.

To start with, see if:

  • They have a regular phone contact number
  • How long have they been on the field?
  • Do they ask for advanced payments of any kind?
  • Do the pictures seem too ideal to be truth?
  • Are they willing to provide the name and personal phone number of the escort so you can get in touch before the personal encounter?
  • Do you personally know of someone who has hired through them before?
  • Are there positive reviews of the agency in the different escort agencies client’s independent forums?
  • Have you checked the agency´s name on any of the websites scam check sites?
  • Do they claim to have a 24/7 clients support line but no one ever answers the phone?

Now, fraudulent escort agencies not only affect honest clients, but also honest people trying to work as escort girls/boys. There are some indicators that should make applicants open their eyes.
