Booking Deposits? More Like Rip And Run...

71 posts in this topic

This will amuse you.  I’m such a muppet sometimes.  

 

Last week I, unwisely, gifted a £50 deposit via PayPal to secure a three hour booking for yesterday at 1.00.  It was all agreed by email and I even sent a confirmation email the night before, promising to ring at midday to get the address.

 

It was a  two and a half hour trek to get there.  I rang at midday as agreed and a girl answered telling me that ****** wasn’t there. My records show that I made a further eight calls that went unanswered, left a voicemail, sent a text and even an email from my iPhone in an attempt to salvage the booking. 

 

I’m not even bothered about getting shafted for the bullseye; it was the total waste of time and effort, all that travelling just to sit in a coffee house for two fucking hours.  Pffft. 

 

The grass ain’t greener outside of London.  The provinces are dead to me now, and never again will I pay a deposit.  What the fuck was I thinking? 

 

When I returned to London, plan B was executed.  Nabilla at the Indian Palace made me extraordinarily happy.  I wish I’d gone there in the first place.  Ha, that'll teach me to stray.

Ahhh the old deposit trick...... I remember  before paypal, the common trick was to ask for mobile phone credit as a form of deposit promising to take the amount of your bill..... We've all been there mate, you don't really believe it until it's happened to you.

I would like to know if naming & shaming is allowed on this board.? I was stood up by a girl a couple of weeks ago, Can/should I name her here or write a FR instead.

PayPal isn't reversible if you gift it.  It's  a clause - something to do with not paying the tax.  

 

Naming and shaming?   I could never do it.  I would feel like a grass; really dirty and not in a nice way.  My personal integrity would be compromised and my conscience would trouble me if I wrecked some girl's life.

It is odd, if a shop pulled this or a company we would be all over them for compo. But when a wg does it, we remember the roots of the hobby and "chalk it down to experience"

It's a tricky one isn't it?! In theory it seems obvious that other punters should be warned, but then there is a risk of her fighting back and it turns into some awful mess. 

 

I suppose the moral of the story is (as it so often is) that it really is worth checking a service provider out thoroughly especially when parting with cash in advance.

Sorry to read about this mate. All this paying a deposit bollocks is not how my punting has ever worked and never will. A definite no chance under any circumstances. Glad to hear you had a good plan B punt. :)

I can confirm i havent been there having never paid a deposit in punting, its an on the day cash transaction for me. Of course you can name and shame its a function of this forum to praise good WGs and castigate bad ones if thats what the punter wishes to do. If you were stood up so didnt actually meet her so money didnt change hands you cant do a FR.

Its strange, but when we get ripped of by an escort, its not the money issue that comes first, its the feeling of how did I fall for it...when I was conned, my first thought was is the escort okay, and has something happened to her, and then the penny dropped.

 

The name and shame business is hard, because its like admitting to others that you have fallen for a con, and despite you dont want this to happen to others, some of the cons that are played upon us are really good and well worked out.

 

Yes name and shame can turn into an awfull mess at times, but at least by admitting that this happened is going to help you get over this in some way.

 

I feel for you mate, as someone who has fallen for a scam, despite the escort trying to plead it was not.

lol. but there is no grass at all outside London, surely? and of course since one punt outside London didn't work, naturally you'd want to bin the rest of the country as a result

A client of mine paid a girl £400 upfront by Paypal.  When he tried to get in touch with her (touring Leeds) another girl answered her 'phone and told him her grandmother had died and she was not touring that week.  

He left it until the next time they toured  when he called again and was told off for being insensitive.  He called from a different number and lo and behold - his girl answered the call and said she was available.  When she realised it was him, she said some rubbish abut being grief stricken or something.

 

He reversed the payment for 'goods not received', and got his money back.

 

He won't do that again :)

As paypal dont allow their system to be used for 'sexual' services could you not say that you have just seen that and see what they say. Say you have 'just seen' that clause.

 

I wouldnt so much mind doing without the money, so long as the scheming scamming prossy did not get it.

 

Perhaps informing Paypal of what has happened would stop the female from duping others.  I know she can use another email address for another account but if she has to put bank details online then that will not be as easy.  Worth thinking about IMO.

Interestingly, after some email ping pong and a story that may be plausible I’ve rescheduled for Thursday.   With an apology, a promise of extra time and crucially, an address, I think I’ve got all bases covered this time. 

 

I may, quite possibly, be raving mad.  We’ll see.

I hope it all goes according to plan this time. And I take me hat off to you Sir for writing those words about not wanting to go public about the girls name. The words of a gentleman. I hope she is as honourable as you on Thursday.

One of our boys had this happen to him recently only he flew in from abroad.  The lady is a well established lady at that.  I bet you boys are glad its not the norm, at least I hope its not.  Thoughtless woman.

Good luck with that.

 

If it all ends up "tits up", rather than you cumming over her tits, I hope you re-think your policy on "naming"... (no need to "shame"... just state the facts, and let them speak for themselves.)

Been there, done that  :angry:

£200 deposit, travel costs and the cost of a room near her.

Nasty little woman did not turn up, and then tried to blame me   :(  :angry:

And tell PayPal it was for an Adult transaction, they'll shut her account down pronto.

Not only do they shut it down, but I believe they confiscate her funds, at least for 180 days, so she will probably lose alot more than you have.

One of the things I appreciate about sexual services is the lack of contractual obligation.

 

If you have booked a course of say - therapy sessions at 60 quid a time - and paid all up front - the rule is - if you miss a session for whatever reason - you lose your money for that session.

 

I took my mobile phone to get it repaired an signed the terms and conditions - they could not repair it but I still had to pay the fee!

 

With paid sex it is nice to know that you only pay if you play.

 

Deposits imply some kind of contract and therefore I would avoid paying anything down with paid sex as I don't want any contractual obligations - they are unenforcable either way and there is no legal redress.
