Did This Happen To Any Other Ladies?

21 posts in this topic

Until last week I chose to be a member of only one site for several years, despite having to pay every single time for advertising there in order to 'raise' my profile: whether it was advertising for a report from a client, or a blog or (very rarely)on the main page as 'Escort of the day' which sometimes could reach hundreds of pounds.  Last week I decided to pay for advertising a report when I received an email from the website saying that my profile needs to be 'verified' (despite being there for a number of years, having OVER 500 pictures in my Gallery mostly taken by me and some by my clients and having excellent reviews from the very few guys I chose to meet). 

 

Despite being under the weather I decided to take a picture of me as the site requested in order to re-activate my membership with a piece of paper on my chest on which I had to write my ID and date.  They messed me around for not writing everything in the specific order they wanted!!!!!!!!! when they sent another email saying now they wanted a scanned proof of my ID (meaning I had to find a business that does that) as the previous picture wasn't good enough.

 

As I was being under the weather and I was tired of the emails I kept sending I ulitmately asked them to refund me the payment I made for advertising a report that day, plus the amount I had in my account (close to 100 pounds), plus the amount I paid in advance for advertising on their Search Engine for some 3-4 weekends in advance.  Until now though  I have heard nothing from them.

 

Bearing in mind these guys never bothered to reply to my messages in all these years, I was hoping they will behave more professional now when terminating my account.  They still have not replied to my message, so it looks like they will eat lots of pies with the money they made of me.  I know in life you can lose more important things........ but I decided to ask this question here: did this happen to other ladies?

 

The only thing I liked about that site was the fact that I was able to see reviews on the guys I chose to meet and I could understand if they meant business or simply liked exchanging lots of emails leading to nothing........plus I could plan everything carefully in advance.

This sounds very much like the MO of Another Website whose pages are purple.

Are you talking about adult work? If you are specific someone may be able to help you.

If you are talking about adultwork then they don't charge you to blog or show your field reports.

However they can be buggers for shutting down profiles.I have emailed them before and they have got back to me.Perhaps your questions might be better answered on saafe?The saafe site has lots of topics about places where we advertise and alot of good advice.

There is a facility to pay have your blog or field report featured(in the featuring facility you get the option of profile or one of these other items), which means it's placed in a prominent position and I am guessing this is what the OP has been doing.

Ah right.It sounded like she meant she had to pay to actually have them on her profile.

Adultwork do seem to be really getting on at people to verify.I would just keep emailing them as they do respond eventually.

Where is the bit where you can feature your reviews? I have never come across it before but I dont look at half of that site, seems primarily set up for cammers tbh x

Indeed I was referring at AdultWork, sorry for not mentioning that but to clarify: yes, you have to pay up to £2.80 to advertise a link to a report left by a client and you have to pay 50 pence every single time your blog is advertised on the Main Page.  And no, until now they did not bother to reply to any of my messages, simply said I had to come back to them with a scanned ID if I want to get any response.  There are lots of ladies there with some 10 photoshoped pictures for many years, if having over 500 pictures there, taken by me, is not enough I wonder what is enough for them to prove my profile is real. 

 

However I put up with their unprofessional attitude for many years where they did lots of 'funny' things to me and after they did not bother to reply, despite not asking much in return: as I said, I was happy to meet somebody which I could verify as other ladies wrote feedback on them.  Bottom line, even they said the site was grim and too 'crude' so no big loss, but I am apalled by this treatment.

When you say 'funny things' are you referring to altering your wording, perhaps in your strap line?

Or changed your profile to "service seeker"?

I've done that in the past when I've taken time off escorting. Never occurred to me it would incur the wrath of AW :eek:

 

@ Annabelle

I wonder why they asked you to verify yourself? Did your profile come under question i.e. did someone report you for something?

I would never consider taking a pic of myself holding up a notice saying 'Adultwork' :eek: :eek: :eek: Oh hell no! There are obvious reasons why many wgs don't show their face. Why on earth would we then risk our privacy by taking such a pic? Madness. Pure madness!

As you are talking AW then best of luck to you in getting anything back.I know one person who's account was closed and her credits taken for changing the price on her pg.They'll be ok with closing the account,but if you're expecting money back,sadly thats pretty unlikely

Its AW that changes your profile to service seeker so you can't get bookings if you are breaking one of their rules. They usually email you first though but lets face it, who reads emails from aw, I dont. If you dont read the email then amend your profile then they often change it to service seeker so when you log in next you cannot ignore the issue. Still dont sort it out..wake up one day and find your profile deleted. They do give warning…I dont think people notice though, I didnt , thought it was just some spam

Just having a profile on this site is a form of advertising unless when guys pm you for your website details you tell them they can't have them. I usually do free banner exchanges with  most directories that Im on. The only ones I pay for are here and aw.

@Annabelle..were most of those pictures in private galleries? If so then maybe someone reported you as a pg scammer. Someone who pretends to be an escort to get guys to view their private galleries then cashes in the money or gets guys on cam by deception. Im not saying you are but if someone has made a malicious complaint against you then surely all you need to do is email them. I had mine removed and after I directed them to my reviews on here and the links to them from  my website and the aw banner linked to my webby they put my profile back up x

When I said 'funny things' I was referring to the fact they never replied to my messages in all the years I have been a member there or once they removed paragraphs from my FAQ saying I posted info for which I have to pay (which normally means revealing a contact number or email address) when I have never done anything like that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I liked being very private and only organing a few bookings if I decided to meet somebody via their correspondence system.  Of course I did not change to 'service seeker' or being a pg scammer.  As I said I liked being very discreet, I had some 30 pictures in the Gallery for many years and over 500 in the Private Gallery with 90% taken by me and the rest by my clients.

 

Most strangely they asked now, some 5 years later for ID proof with no access to my funds if I do not do that.  If they asked that all the girls and all the clients there, I bet AW will be out of business.  Most of us value privacy, right?

AW are a machine and don't see, to recognise individuals. They just steam on the giant they are, people keep using them, when they go down everyone decries them but they still remain the directory of choice for both SPs and SS.

Those pennies dont half add up though over the weeks and months. It is essentially one of the most expensive escorting directories out there if you work full time and want to make use of all their advertising features. Still, the cost per day is covered by one booking which is why everyone pays for it. 

 

Local plus phone number plus available today plus feature a field review comes to over a tenner PER DAY. 50-70 per week if you work full time and want to showing all the time so to catch peoples attention.

I don't use the featuring stuff really but Chloe is right if you use available today and local escorts and have your number displayed over a 5 day week it comes to £37.50 over a month thats £150 a month so not cheap.
