Unpleasant Experience

22 posts in this topic

Hello All,

I wanted to share an unpleasant experience I had after seeing a WG this week. I've seen the lady in question about 6 times in the last year. She's an independent working lady. After leaving her place and getting into my car - I noticed that I was been follwed by a guy in a car behind me. He tailed me for about 3 miles in farily heavy traffic and done everything to try to intimidate me like flashing lights, tail-gating me to dangerously close levels and swerving all over the road behind me. He was clearly agitated and angry as he was flailing his arms about in his car. The worrying thing about all of this was that I could see him taking pictures of my car with his camera phone! Should I be worried? My motor is a fleet car so I think I'm ok. I'm certain he didn't follow me home. At one stage he tried to overtake me so I got a look at him and he was menacing looking individual. I have no idea who is his but assume he is some possessive boyfried of the lady who I will not be seeing again. Has anyone else had experiences like this?

Thanks,

It's a bit of an assumption to think the guy was following you because you'd visited this particular girl. If you were really worried, you should have taken down his REG and reported him to the police.

Sounds an awful experience. Have never had anything like it, although a word to the wise - I had some verbals off a neighbour of a regular about parking my car outside her house, next thing I know I get back to the office and the old bill have been on following up a complaint about an illegally parked car (not) - mine's a fleet car as well. Fortunately I make sure I'm covered off by doing business near the girls' house but could have been embarrassing. Best to move on - plenty more fish....

Or could have been one of the girls neighbours if they have got wind. Did you contact her? She night need to know. Assuming it is anything to do with her!

I'm fairly sure the guy had a connection with the WG because while I was with her she took a call from a bloke which went along the lines 'No, I don't want to see you again just leave me alone' or maybe i'm just been paranoid about the whole experience..

Certainly sounds unpleasant. You should of taken his reg down as Annabel said and inform the WG as Kizzie says. It could of been a neighbour but a bit extreme in my view, a boyfriend or her pimp pure speculation but she wouldnt be seeing me again if this happened to me, too dodgy for my liking whatever the reason.

JCBman, next time you visit instead of taking the fleetcar take your JCB instead. If he tailgates you again slam the brakes on....job done.

Sounds like a boyfriend or ex-boyfriend. I've had a couple of those try and cause me problems in the past. I'd keep away for a while just to avoid the aggro.

I note you say you are not going to visit the lady again. Perfectly understandable, but it might be worth while letting her know that and why. If she does have an irate bf or ex-bf (or even worse, a nutjob stalker) harassing and putting off clients, then I am sure she would want to know about it.

Or perhaps you unknowingly carved up some Mr Angry type at a roundabout on the way home and he simply got annoyed at you.

I agree, it sounds like a nut-job and you should inform the girl, you may get an explanation but don't push for one.

If you had a good time then don't be intimidated, a nut-jobs behaviour should not be re-enforced by success. Just be better prepared mentally about what you intend to do. If you have a camera phone then stop and photograph him or lead him to the nearest police station.

Probably just an arsehole driver and how he can pinpoint you as a visitor is a remarkable assumption. In fact what the hell has all this got to do with the WG?

Agreed with whats been said. I would have been just as freaked out as you. As others have said, it probaly is a good idea to inform the particular wg involved. Who knows, it could be some stalker of hers. I mean if she was on the phone refusing to see him, she must know him, possible even beening an ex client of hers. Maybe his trying to scare away her clients and is getting posessive. From that phone call you describe, sounds like someones whos very persistent. She might not even know this happened to you or even if it has happening with others.

This is all asumming it is a client and not just someone with a serious case of road rage.

Having read what the Originator has said and his own observations,it seems likely that it was to do with the WG in some way shape or form.A remarkable set of coincidence if it wasnt.....!

Im wondering why you seem hell bent on truing to convince everybody that its "just a case of road rage"....?

It could be anybody. Do we have Punter written on our brows? Far easier to wait outside and confront rather than chase in a car where the plate can be noted and reported. We are also assuming the punter parks right outside the WG's establishment and is indelibly linked. It's Fantasy Island on Pnet at the moment.

He tailed me for about 3 miles in farily heavy traffic and done everything to try to intimidate me like flashing lights, tail-gating me to dangerously close levels and swerving all over the road behind me.

It could've been an angry local man- who knew about the girls flat/associations and went a bit "vigilante" by trying to scare off Punters.

Or if its a genuine Independent Escort- maybe he was a PIMP angry that a truly independent W/G was Escorting on "his turf" so that was part of his intimidation scheme/campaign to get this girl under "his protection".

You call her and give a description- she realises its the same Drug Dealing/Criminal twat- scaring off customers etc.

Or it was some random nutjob (there are plenty of weirdos about) and it was totally unrelated.

Either way if you were that paranoid/rattled about it. You should've

a) pulled into a well lit; public place with CCTV i.e. a Petrol Garage Forecourt, a fast food drive through (order something small or a coffee) or a late night Shopping Mall.

B) stayed in your Car- locked doors.

c) call the Police immediately 999. Police- urgent I think I am being followed. Give current location- town- landmarks description of Car Make, Model Reg Plate and Man Driving Car.

d) stay in car. Keep on phone and update operator of situation.

e) give a police statement when psycho-man drives off.

Ridiculous! What, is he expected to tell the rozzers that he was on his way back from a punt? Is that what you would do? I didn't think so!

What the OP should do, is name and shame (IE: description of said nutjob, including details of his car and number plate if possible, on here)

Once a similar thing happened to me, although nothing as serious or aggressive though. I was waiting for the door to be answered at a "known" knock shop, and two arseholes were stood across the road in the doorway of a betting shop, and they chose to shout across to me and mock me. They used gestures and swore at me, and of course laughed. Thankfully the door was quickly opened, but it nearly ruined the punt for me, and I was paranoid as I was leaving - I was afraid that they might have followed me with the intention of blackmailing me. Thankfully nothing ever happened, and looking back now I can see that they were just having fun, but you really do have to be careful as a punter.

I think you should have asked the WG if she knew anything about this. I know - if this happened to one of my clients, I would want to know! This kind of thing is just not on at all. You have paid the lady for her discretion and to be followed by some nutter after you have left is a breach of that IMHO

Something similar happened to me, nothing to do with punting though. I had no idea why the guy was following me. I just drove to the nearest police station. The guy gave up after that, which was good, but the police were not interested in the slightest.

Thanks for all of your replies and observations. I have decided to tell the WG about the incident although I will not be seeing her again. I have far too much to loose by enagaging or meeting with some nutter/pimp/random physco/jealous boy-friend again.

The Police are the good guys. I am a law abiding Citizen what do I have to fear (hiring Escorts paying for sex BEHIND closed doors in a private house IS NOT Illegal).

Its only illegal if done in public OR if I knew the Escort was doing things against her will, was on Drugs, was underage or trafficked).

If I felt my personal safety was on the line I would inform the Police ONLY if it affected me and ONLY the details that were a danger to myself* (*i.e. some shady characters following me). The Police would apprehend the said Car for the occupant to do the explaining.

Contrary to popular belief Criminals- agressive types DO fear being arrested, prosecuted, jailed.

But you have no proof- the guy had anything to do with the Escort.

You do know he rattled you enough to want to get onto your PC and type this thread for re-assurance (even though it may not have been Escort related).

Fair enough like DirtyDec said- the Police wouldn't make an arrest based on a shady character tooting his horn or driving erratically (unless CCTV footage of the offense and seriousness of Crime- like damage) BUT would record it- which would be used as evidence if said Car was reported again.

As for calling the Escort. Why? You then run the risk of being investigated by Police yourself if her mobile phone was tapped (highly unlikely but possible) if you said you'd seen suspicous activity but didn't report it.

Good decisions in my opinion. At the end of the day this guy might not have anything to do with her at all but why take any risks when there are plenty of other WGs about. If this had happened to me it would of ruined my punting vibe of wanting to punt with her again anyway.:)
