Enquiries Via Email

10 posts in this topic

Hello :)

Just a quick reminder to the few of you that send their email enquiries/bookings via their work emails.

Many organisations have a filter on certain words that will flag up and go to the IT Administrator to read before sending on.

I know this happens in many of the larger organisations (I used to work in IT departments)

Just be cautious, many emails are quite tame but some can be fairly explicit, just wanted to pass the info on to those that would not think of the process behind company emails.

Why would anyone want to use their work/company e-mail to enquire/book an escort and yet they want to keep their punting hobby a secret is beyond me!!!!!

I tend to ban govenrment IP numbers from viewing my site which means I seldom get emails from those areas.

I absolutley insist on email verification from the users internet provider. I also insist on getting that mail however contact is made initially.

After the initial email I don't care if they use walt@disneyland, its part of secure trading ;) There just has to be an initial contact with a recognised internet provider even in thta email is blank or just says hello!

Its not all the security a girl needs but it is step one!

Good warning Sabs. It constantly amazes me how many cerebrally challenged people (not just punters) there are out there.

I work for a global organisation and everyone we employ is governed by an IT Usage Policy that everyone is briefed on when they join. It doesn't specifically mention don't book escorts, I'll grant, but it is pretty obvious what you should and shouldn't do.

However, people are often caught flouting the policy (yes everyone, big brother is watching YOU, especially when you are using your work computer connected to a work network). In the last year alone, I have had to formally discipline members of my staff (ooh er missus) for accessing porn and writing extreme political views on dodgy forums.

Anyone who uses their work computer for this hobby is as mad as a box of frogs.

I used to work for an IT company in NZ which were contracted to run a very very large company's IT requirements, a part of my job was every month to print off the web usage including websites visited from each and every member of this company and send it in with their invoicing to each department head, it was very interesting to see what people were up to on the work networks :P

Yep it is very common to have the company address. Luckily, the emails I tend to get are very polite and not salacious, well at least theirs aren’t :lol:

The best ones are when a chap will say "I didn't have chance to look at your website properly because I'm at work", or "your website is blocked on the work PC". Ooops. I have an idea that most IT systems log all of this.

I got one the other day where the potential client giave his name as 'Pete' at the bottom of the mail, however the mail came from 'john.smith@companyname.co.uk. I put www.companyname.co.uk into the search bar and it was a fairly local company!

This one quite commonly happens with all sorts of domain names, including hotmail etc. The email will show up as from "John"(in hotmail you can chose how your email is headed), but be signed from "Steve". Even better is where during the course of an email exchange the named signed off with varies. I usually end up asking which name they'd prefer to be called by. :P
