Aw Is Crap

56 posts in this topic

Hi people today I made a booking with a verfied AW girl ( green verfied symbol ) got there only to find another girl who did not look like her. AW verifiation means fuck all !

 

Many thanks goes to google reverse image search too

 

Girl I booked was aw id 1893346

 luv luv luv kendy 

 

 

After checking the reverse images , the girls photos were lifted off here

So Verified is NOT to be trusted

If you click on the green "Verified Member" icon a message will appear. I did it at random just now and got:

 

Verified Member

XXXX has supplied ID that demonstrates they are an adult. They have not supplied a verification photo or have since deleted it.

 

and again:

 

 

Verification Photo

This is a verification photo as supplied by Miss XXXX We make no warranties or guarantees that this picture is of the person(s) advertising or appearing on Miss XXXX's profile page.

Use this photo to make your own judgements as to the authenticity of Miss XXXX's profile by comparing it with those that appear in their galleries and movie library.

 

 

So, some verified members are more verified than others, it would seem.

No real surprise here - £70 an hour for an escort with no feedback who looks like that? Impossible!

 

The reality is that unless the escort shows her verification photo, the green Verified Member should always be treated with caution. There are a huge number of very good and better escorts on AW at all prices. But you have to approach all profiles cynically (check both the feedback the escort has received and also check whether those who have left feedback have left feedback for the same group of escorts, Google Image photos if they look too good to be true and check that the photos are in sync with the hourly rate) before making any decision on an escort. And then talk to her to see how open and friendly she is before booking.

 

No, AW isn't crap. However, it is far too open to scam artists who want to feed off the unwary.

That first message is a load of rubbish, it's being attached to ladies who definitely have supplied photos and haven't removed them. In order to be verified you have to supply photo ID plus a photo of your face, there is no halfway house as far as I'm aware and I don't know what AW are playing at. Makes a mockery of the genuine ladies who have decided to play by their rules and get themselves verified.

After I verified myself someone and carefully clicked the box that said I didn't want my verification pic shown (it has to be a full face pic) someone kindly pointed out there is a glitch in the system that allows the clever to see this picture. I then removed it so whilst I show as verified anyone looking for my face pic would be given the message that I hadn't provided a pic or had deleted it. 

 

So whilst the OPs profile wasn't genuine there will be plenty who are but don't want there verification photo been found.

At least they try with the verification feature. Its never going to filter out every chancer but at least it gives you a bit more confidence and indicates that they are genuine.

I quite like adultwork. If you stick to girls with good feedback you can find some gems for less than agency prices.

Its also a pretty good fully featured piece of software. The likes of ebay and autotrader could learn a lot from them in terms of the search features, messaging, blogging, micro payments, reverse bookings.

All in all punting would be less fun without the purple site!

Minxy this mesage is appearing for ladies who still have their photo on their verification, but have simply ticked the box asking for it not to be displayed.

 

I think AW have applied this badly worded message to a variety of situations, which may or may not be the actual case.

Hmm, this is odd- I just checked on AW to see if the glitch was still in place and it seems all verfified members (I tried loads) came up as saying : has supplied ID that demonstrates they are an adult. They have not supplied a verification photo or have since deleted it.

 

How odd.

No, I meant at one time even if you ticked the box and got the message there was a way of still being able to see the photo!

I don't think AW is crap but you have to navigate the piles of crap in order to pick out the diamonds in the rough.  Gut instinct is the way to pick winners on that site.

Yes, which some dickhead kindly posted on here a long time ago. I remember getting into a huge argument about how this was so  morally bankrupt at the time and waiting for the girls to come along and speak up too, i think two did and that was it. This is another of the reasons I refuse to verify myself on that site. How much verification does a man need, if you have reviews they should be enough without having to resort to verifying yourself on a site that opens you up to potential blackmail from a punter who your refuse to see again for example. That glitch is imo a pretty terrible glitch and i would have thought that considering  aw would collapse into a pointless heap if sps stopped using it, one that they would have sorted out a long time ago.

I confess to not being versed in the ways of AW. In fact I have looked at it more in the last three months (since I joined Punternet) than in the last five years. The examples above were chosen at random. I simply copied and pasted two differing messages that came up when I clicked on the green icon. There was no attempt to mislead or traduce anyone.

I didn't say you were, my words were aimed at AW.

Ok. :)

 

Sorry I misunderstood. :)

 

 

So why are AW so shifty and/or incompetent?

 

And actually while I'm here, re AW: last week I did a Field Report there (my 2nd ever) and the wretched bot or whatever deals with the input kept nagging me for more details about the hotel! In the end I wrote about the vending machine beside the lift just to get the thing accepted.

Judging by the amount of threads about this particular subject on other forums and the problems that verified girls are having I'm so glad I'm not verified, but I am genuine.  As I've mentioned on another thread, it's a shame that no one has come up with a similar site that operates from the UK and gives better technical support.

I have to disgree strongly with the OP.  AW is not crap. I use it for all my punts, rather than these glorified agency sites (particularly with an Asian influence) with loads of heavily air-brushed girls who really nothing like the image.

 

AW and the information provided by the service provicer should viewed as a "tool or an aid", in the same way as a sat nav is an aid to drivers. No more, no less.  Sadly many take sat nav's too literally, and have turned right onto a railway line or into a ford, rather than reading the road and being observant.

 

You ALWAYS take information on AW with a degree of caution and by doing your research you can make good choices which can result in memorable encounters for all the right reasons.

 

While it's disappointing for you and not pleasant for us to read that you've been stung, I've never (yet) been scammed through bait & switch, I have had disappointing punts even when the lady has had gold plated feedback. This is very much a buisness wher eyou trust your own instincts.

 

I was once told that quality seldom means cheap, and the same can be applied to this business.

Depending on what your idea of cheap is I may disagree with that statement

AW is most definately not crap,there's scams on there as there is everywhere....for 17 years i punted on different websites and from cards in phone box's and some of my very best punts I found on AW.

first couple of years on AW were hit and miss but mainly hit,my last couple of years punting on AW were 95% success once I'd got the knack for spotting phony pictures & profiles/rip off private gallerries ect.

 

You can get that escort if you really want,but you must try,try,try and try...and you'll succeed at last.

The following song is going out to the punter known as Richard >

they are not incompetant. they have a business that makes em shed loads of cash. that the service they give to the girls or the punters is poor is of no consequence to them as long as the cash keeps rolling in.  They do have some nice features, tho.

To be fair, the few times I have used AW I have not had a bad punt; in a couple of cases they were very good punts. My only real beef was the silly bot prompting me for more stuff about the hotel the other day. But reading things here on Punternet it seems that AW is awash with problems. I shall go my own sweet way in any case but maybe with a bit more caution when it comes to AW. :)

 

I like the search feature, especially the bit where you can enter a postcode and specify the distance.

I realised the other day that I have just had my first anniversary on AW and was surprised as the year has flown by.

 

I used to slag off AW the way others did..... vowed never to be a part of it.  Other ladies I know who have had profiles there for a long long time have always said it was no worse than any other way of drawing in clients.

 

Thinking I would give it a try and having my own site which serves me very well... I could always withdraw from AW if my doubts proved right..... I joined up. My first appointment from there did not show up and I thought I was right all along.  However I persevered and from then on it was absolutely fine... and still is.

 

Once in a while I get duped by a genuine sounding man and he plays the silly games we are all aware of.... this is par for the course.

 

There is crap everywhere in this business.  Agencies and indies can let you down and misinform with their advertising. AW is just the biggest site so naturally has a higher proportion of wankers/idiots/morons...... male and female!

 

If I was a bloke I would be seething if my hard earned cash was wasted on a lying cheating agency or woman who advertised something they could not deliver.

 

We ladies put up with more crap than you guys you know. We just get hardened to it whereas you men probably feel it hits harder because you get used to so many genuine girls and then when you make a bad judgement and get a scammer or lazy arse of a woman then you feel it more.

Remember that quote from Churchill?

" Democracy is the worst form of government... except all the others that have been tried."

 

That's how I feel about AW. Yes, there are timewasters (punters and WGs), scammers and so on. BUT. It's the best we've got. I find it a brilliant resource and interestingly I've never had a really bad punt off AW. You read all the signs and use your gut instinct. And always remember that if something seems too good to be true it probably is. You are NOT going to get girls with model looks working for £70 ph.

I remember when Adultwork first appeared quite a few WGs were reluctant to advertise there and was slagging it of for quite a while. Eventually they succumbed, because they realised that Adultwork its a major portal of Adult industry, and if you not there, your bookings going to diminish no matter how  many regulars, or FR reports you have on Punternet.

 

In fact I am not sure if its worth to pay now for a website hosting, (about £80 per year) as well as paying £15 for Punternet listings, or other directories, because the majority of the bookings do come from there.

 

For example when back in the 2004-2009 to advertise on Punternet  was cost £15. It was a more then fair price, because you could get as much 2000+ visitors per month on your website, or 60-70 per day (visitors, not hits!) and subsequently some bookings from it. Now for the same price (my website personally, but I am sure it applies for others) its about 8-9 times less, about 10-20 visitors in a day, or around 200 per month, which is a drop around 90%.

 

Even when you put ad on Announcement board, the hits from it about 20-30 per day. In a good old times, it was at least 300-400 following few days of the ad. (which is more then 90% drop)  Charges to advertise on PN  however are still the same. I am sure Galahad knows about it also, as I am certain he look on his stats also.

 

Yes, Adultwork took over and more or less monopalised all Escort Industry. If you are not there, and unless you are working very part time (1-2 meetings per week),  you are not going to do to well no matter how snazzy your website, and no matter how well you suck the cock underwater in the bath, or how can you make a magnificent cake from the scratch in matter of 10 minuites for a client (in microwave, mind, lol), Even if you look like Ornella Mutti, if you are not on Adultwork, you  might as well dont bother.
