A New Type Of Scam On The Purple Site ?

20 posts in this topic

Having had my sabbatical after being ripped off earlier in the year, a certain amount of friskiness stirred my nether regions, and I thought I might be ready to give it all another go ;) . What better way than to place a "reverse booking" on that site, I thought to myself, as I might just pick up a bargain :)

i was truly amazed by the number of bids I got, considering my age, the price I offered and where I live ! A couple of nice contacts were made who have been put to one side for future possible meetings but there was one truly "outstanding" :wub: young lady who made an interestingly low bid, but needed to travel a long way to my home, which is what I had asked for.

I e-mailed back to see if her bid included /excluded her travel expenses, and the exchange of e-mails is still going on now. At first the lady said "yes, no problem, I'll pay my own travel", then in the next e-mail asked how far I was from London :wacko: now we've reached the stage where she's just had to pay her bills, and can't afford to get here :(

Gorgeous photo, short profile, only five rather suspicious feedbacks. No Gallery or Private Gallery, and admittedly EE, to excuse to poor use of the English Language.

Am I wrong in smelling a dirty great big "RAT" here ? :mad:

The e-mail exchange continues ....... watch this space ;)

Ho-Hum ! Maybe I should have stayed on sabbatical after all ? :unsure:

If I were Jack I would be making alternative plans for my return to the punting fraternity.

Rather than the gamble of a reverse booking....and the prospect of it going wrong and putting you off again, i would have thought the best way to return and re-inspire would be to book a sure thing with a guaranteed good girl to start with!!

Are there any RELIABLE sites out there to find punts? In 4 months i have actually had 2 meets. No responses, bizarre emails in scrambled English, ignored phone calls and planned dates that never occur.

Are parlors the only answer? I don't really want to go to one but nothing else works. I have the money and yet nobody seems to want to take it. And I've done nothing wrong either....

I would say, always make the first approach by telephone. If her phone number isn't shown, move on. Keep your phone conversations short and business-like. If an appointment is agreed by phone with a girl on AW, tell her that you will then put it through the booking system and ask her to confirm it. Concentrate your research on girls with good feedback from clients who have good feedback themselves (unless you are willing to gamble on finding the next star). I have had a very high success rate using this approach and my only bad experiences have been when I have broken one of my own rules.

For the record, possibly the best punt I ever had was an overnight that came up suddenly. I had a meeting in Edinburgh on very short notice, and from the airport en route I called an escort in Darlington who I'd long wanted to see to ask if she'd be able to get up there and meet me, literally in four hours time. She was available and said fine, but you'll have to pay my train ticket in advance. A couple of calls to (then) GNER established that this was possible so I bought a ticket by phone to be held in her name at Darlington Station. She picked it up an hour later and we met on the platform in Edinburgh a couple of hours after that. The rest is history, great night. TBH while I agree there are plenty of scammers out there and I've been the victim more than once, I'd rather trust people and get ripped off occasionally than not trust anything at all.

I agree re the scam. This can only work with guys who are prepared to be drawn in over the long haul. Dont send any money or pay for the punt in advance as it wont happen.

Reminds me of an odd site I was very briefly a member off once, everyone makes friends with your really fast and chat to you a lot then one by one they stop talking to you till you get a messages saying ...oooo I love this item sooo much but cannot afford it then if you ignore them they just blank you. It was on one of those daft second life type things years ago.

If girl stand in front of you give cash, if not dont

Good tale, and one that shows that there is a way to arrange things that suits, and yes id agree with you that I would rather trust people, but I do play the trust game in that I tend to book escorts with positive feedback on a long date...been ripped of a few times, but only twice in about 20 years of punting.... :)

I'm really just going along with it all out of interest to see where it goes ;)

I'm fresh out of my Old Regular "Goodies" due to a couple of retirements and my own driving ban :(

Good rule if the lady publishes a 'phone number, However, one of my best ever punts was with a Lady who does not, hence no FR on here,

Lucky Old You :D Hey ! I'm not too far from Darlington ! Any chance you could PM me the Lady's contact details ?

Thanks for the advice, Chloe, but I am now in the "once bitten,twice ..... errrrmmmm ... more learned" category <_<

< General update on the situation >

She seemed quite offended that she thought that I had thought ( you still with me here, folks ? :wacko: ) that she was asking for money in advance

She's now supposed to be checking on rail fares !!!! FFS, why did she not do that before bidding on my Reverse Booking in the first place

I've offered for her to get here anytime in the next couple of weeks, and at any time of day to suit her but keeping to the price she offered in the RBB :cool:

IF she's genuine, I could just possibly have found myself the best Christmas Present ever :D:wub:

Keep watching this space folks,

Latest update :-

As I said before, the lady admits to being foreign, but her e-mails seem to be getting shorter and shorter :unsure:

This morning's simply states "no money for ticket" ..... that's all, nothing more, nothing less ! At least she has not asked for money up front ..... yet ?

If she's genuinely "working" where she lives, is she having to pass on her earnings to some sort of handler ? ( I do not like the word 'pimp' :angry: )

Maybe she is genuine, and simply temporarily short of ready cash but it all still smells a little like Grimsby to me :eek:

I'm going to continue with the e-mail exchange, more out of interest than anything else and to be able to report back to all you good folks on this forum, rather than having much hope of ever seeing the Gorgeous Creature :wub: "in the flesh" ! What a selfless chap I am to do such research, don't you think ? :D

Or maybe she is starting to think the email tennis is sounding like a waste of time? Perhaps she is short of cash, there seems to be this delusion that us ladies are rolling about in wads of cash, the truth is most of us are paying bills etc doing work that although can be lucrative can also be sporadic especially the first few weeks of December. She may well also have to send money back to her family from wherever she comes from.

I would say if you have no intention of seeing her its rather pointless to keep emailing back and forth. I think her saying 'no money for ticket' is her way of saying enough mate.

I'd never send money up front or transfer money to a WGs account.

I'd also ask the question whether she has the wherewithall to actually make the journey. Life's to short for email ping-pong. Move on.

Separately, I booked a lady off AW 2 weeks back,she was driving 60 miles each way, asked for £30 fuel money, but more importantly, left the envelope with the money until walking out at end of session more than 90 mins later.

I really like that level of trust. And she was good fun too.

From what i have reread on the original post, she is a foreign lady who maybe hadn't realised how far away you were from her, its not uncommon to ask for a bit extra if the lady is travelling quite far to get to the booking. She hasn't asked as such for money up front, you don't think you will be seeing her anyway and yet you are emailing her back and forth for what reason exactly? I think I'd have actually blocked your emails by now to be honest.

You are assuming because she is short of cash or whatever she is being pimped? You are making alot of assumptions based on not alot really. She has not scammed you out of anything by your own admission so why are you still contacting her?Move on.

Accurate and to the point BB ;) The late, lamented LS could not have said it better :)

You may just have missed out on a booking had you blocked me as you suggested, though :(

I DO have intentions of seeing her, and we're now exchanging texts and 'phone calls ( why is her mobile reception so bad in London, FFS ? :blink: ) and we're part way into an arrangement for next week :)

I'm still rather proud of having done all this research for Y'all ;) so all contributions gratefully received :D

Ah so yesterday you said you doubted you were going to meet her and you were emailing her out of interest (for amusement) but today you are going to meet her and you are now doing text and phone ping pong.Good stuff.Well I hope you really are going to meet rather than doing the texting and phoning out of interest and of course to keep the forum posted.Can't wait to see the fr.As for not getting a booking because of choosing to block a guy that wants to play email tennis..well cest la vie..can't say I'd lose sleep over it.Plenty of other bookings to be had with blokes that make a straight forward booking with relevant communications.Hope you have a great time after all the rigmarole.

All these emails, phone calls and texts and only part way into arrangements, one of you is probably going to be taken for a mug.

FFS, Ladies !! :angry:

i am not a TW, as other nice ladies on this site can testify :) ( LS can no longer, sadly, do so :( ...... Lu please come to my aid here ? <_<

Is it not worth a little extra effort to get a really beautiful young Lady :wub: at a particularly good rate ??

No wanking texts or calls, honest :unsure: but a real desire to meet the Lady if she's genuine :) but to expose her to Y'all if she's not :angry:
