Scammed About 3 Month Ago

68 posts in this topic

After many years of punting, I was scammed by an escort on AW in september, and have been trying to deal with this with her, as she does come over as being quite truthfull and when I moved on from knowuing it was a waste of time, i have been trying to tell Aw about her, with much dialolgue, but sadly no removal despite evidence being given.

 

I had an overnighter with Xxxx , and she seemed honest so I paid up front in the room and we went out t a restaurant for a meal, I rally enjoyed her company and we decided that as it was still early, we would hit a club and get some drink, when we had a few she said she had to go to the toilet, and next thing I knew I had a text from her saying that her sister had gone in to labour, and she had to rush to the hospital, course I didnt hear from her for a few days but here it becomes a bit intresting, she then text me to say that she will hionour the time when she comes back to the area.

 

So I sent a feedback to aw saying she was good company and had hoped to see her again, and she replied that she would see me again to "wrap up" the deal. so I thought it was all truthfull, when things moved along not to my liking, I told a escort and punter on here about it, and I dont want to name them as they were both helpful to me at the time.

 

Course each time she was in the area she had an excuse why it was not conveniant etc, she works in  both the North west and London,, so a  while ago I gave up trying to be friendly with her and she offered me some money back, if I could give her my bank details. well I am all for giving trust, but im not stupid enough to fall for that one.

 

I have been trying to talk to Aw about the person, but have now reached the end of the road of trying to get them to take her details down. asshe did say that if they did she would simply re-invent herself.

 

What other avenues of getting her profile removed do I have.!.

Why don't you give details of your bank? After all its only name, account number and sort code. Exactly the same details appear on you cheque. I am sure in good old times you paid by the cheque in supermarkets, to the builder, gardener, for a meal in restaurant, your accountant, employer, etc.  So why such reluctance to give this details to the WG? What is the difference?

 

She might genuinely wanted to transfer money to you, because she did not complete last booking, and did not had a time to see you again (or simply did not wanted to) to compensate for it.

What good would that do if she is just going to have another profile.

 

I would have preferred AW to ban her from using their advertising services.

Set up a paypal account and give her those details?AW make it quite clear they will not get involved with whqt goes on between client and wg in a booking.They will only get involved if a profile user is breaking aw's terms and conditions.

You should name and shame but see if you can get your money back.

I really do not think this girl is going to pay back what she owes.  If she had a conscience at all she would

have insisted on some method of payment.

 

No honest girl would leave a client sitting alone and disappear..... the "sister going into labour" story sounds

totally bogus to me... but if it were true then why disappear into the night... why not just go back to the table

and explain and give the refund.

 

Sounds like a big fat scam to me.... no ifs or buts.

I'm with Adele. A total scam with no thought for you. All the follow up crap is simply that     CRAP.

 

I would not hesitate to name and shame here to help other punters avoid her.

Really sorry this happened to you, what a bitch, sounds like my perfect overnight lol! I once had an overnight where the client insisted on payment in three separate intervals even though I have loads of excellent feedback. I think he had an experience similar. It didn't bother me that much as he had good feedback and it all turned out okay. Maybe you should do that next time.

Dont even have to give your name, just sort code and account number - I see no risk in this

No I think you definitely do have to give your full name. I had to once when someone transferred money to me.

Some banks do ask for and insist on the account holder's name. This is to check you haven't made a mistake with the account number because once the money is paid in, they won't refund if a mistake is made.

 

So sorry to hear you have been victim of what is a well-known, classic scam. I've been given cash at the start of a 'public' date, once whilst the guy went back to his car and I was left very much alone but would never be able to bring myself to not provide the agreed time and service. People who do this sort of thing walk a dangerous line.

I also think this.  The transfer must have the recipient's name as well as acc. nos .....

to ensure no mistakes are made.

Adele: she did offered it.  If Spklors did agreed, and then when she did not sent payment, then Yes it is undeniable scam. However she never had an opportunity to pay back.

 

I do agree "sister gone into labour" it does come across like the most feeble childish (NPI) scam. She might have some kind of an emergency, but did not wanted to tell what it is to the client, hence inventing "labor" story. Whatever happened,  she should  give the money to guy straight away when she left. (no mater how awkward it might be in the restaurant setting, when she is suppose to be stressed and in the mad rush).

 

I am actually surprised that she brought this cash with her in restaurant, (which probabaly was quite a large sum for such a long booking) instead of leaving it in the hotel room.

 

Will be interesting to see what kind of feedabck this girl has, providing Spklors going to give her ID on Adultwork. (which I doubt also).

If someone ripped you off, and then asked for your name,  bank account details, and sort code, do you really think its safe to do so!.

At the risk of getting shouted at what's wrong with parting with the cash when you return to tbe lady's flat or to the hotel? You go to a restaurant where presumably you pay. You then go to a club where again presumably you pay. Would the lady be correct in expecting money to change hands before going to the restaurant? What would be wrong with paying up after going to the club? What would be the correct etiquette?

I am particularly interested because in the spring I will be enjoying my first overnight with a lady I have already seen twice. The plan is theatre first (tickets already purchased) followed by dinner (restaurant already selected by the lady) followed by bliss. :D. When do you think it is the appropriate moment and would it be different if it was our first meeting.

Had you gone ahead and given her the bank details do you think the refund would have appeared in your bank?

 

 

No.............. I don't either.

 

She was just trying to get you off her back and you say she works both from London and Northwest?  Very handy

method to flit about and scam others.

 

Yes I am cynical.... but I believe I am right on this one.

IMHO  NO NO NO. Like pouring petrol on a fire. You have to to seriously consider damage limitation. Try to put it behind you, learn and move on

As I said in my previous post you could always pay in separate intervals. For example part when you first meet, then part half way through and the rest in the morning. Although I personally wouldn't trust a stranger with no feedback with this arrangement

Its always the case of paying up front for the overnight, as it gets the transaction out of the way, if the escort takes the time and trouble to get ready for the booking and to turn up, then you should always pressume that its okay to proceed.

 

Trust is a good sign to give someone, I just was not given the same respect back on this occassion.

I placed a reverse booking on AW, and got about 20 replies, I had said that it would guarentee 6 -7 hours of sleep time and a meal and a drink as well as £350, the person replied that she wanted to go ahead with this and was more than happy to accept the booking.

 

But its not all about the money, its the scam and con that took place that caused the most concern to me.

Never had this problem but I have a reliable girl for overnights and am happy to pay upfront and have never been let down.

Well you have to chalk it up to experience I suppose.

I do not think I have ever been paid up front for an over night meet.

 

I feel for you big style.

The lady in question is not honorable at all.

I got over paid by 100 squid once, I moved mountains to try to get it back to him.

 

Did she have good feed back already then off other blokes?

If its too good to be true, there's usually a reason why!

I've always been paid up front for overnights but am happy to leave it in the hotel as long as I've got a room key of my own.
