Agency Asked For Payment Via Bank Transfer .... Normal Or Not ?

19 posts in this topic

I hardly use agencies to book a SP.... A girl caught my attention & as I am staying in a hotel in London this weekend I Inquired about the girl in question, I was told ( via email so can't have got my wires crossed ) that I needed to make the payment via Bank transfer in advance as The girls do not handle cash.

 

The agency (Belle London Escorts ... If I am not allowed to name modz plz delete agency name) seems like a

average agency... not a 'super elite' one that only provides models or porn stars etc .... so thought cash

upon arrival was the usual method of payment ..... or am I wrong?

 

I never have been asked to pay a independent via bank transfer .... so alarm bells started to ring.

 

Has anyone used the agency? .... is it a credible one?

I do not know the agency but I always pay cash on arrival. This seems to be the normal way of punting life and I would probably refuse to pay via transfer.

Not for first few visits but if it builds up as a regular visit and trust has been secured by both parties bank transfer does work.  But cash initially I'd say.

Most of their escorts are available at other agencies, but at £150 per hour, not £100 as on Belle. You can check by going on to londescortguide.com. I would never pay upfront by bank transfer when it is not necessary.

Bank transfer can be traced. For your own security and safety, pay by cash and never in advance.

Agreed - tell them to get lost and book the girl you want with another, reputable, agency. It might cost you a few quid more but its worth it for peace of mind.

Highly suspicious set-up, this one. As sigispen reports, they are advertising £150 girls at £100, which suggests they are stealing girls' profiles.

 

On top of that, they are an agency with no phone number (is this a first?), so there's no way of tracing them when you have been scammed. All bookings are by online form.

 

Then the OP reports being asked for card payment before seeing the "girl". It all adds up to a blatant scam. AVOID like the plague.

 

Thanks to the OP for sounding alarm here.

No agency in London operates this way. They all have phone numbers. They actually give an address(!!) in the contact details which is (after googling it) for Graff Diamonds!! The absolute best case scenario is that you'll get a bait and switch - in reality they'll just take your money and run probably.

An absolute scam

 

they say that they are the winner of

 

 

★ Winner of London Escort Agency of the year 2013 ★ took this off their site. Ridiculous.

 

The only time I have heard to pay by bank transfer was when a booking is overseas, and the girl has to travel there and usually its half the amount not the full enchilada.

This thread is a great example of how wonderful this forum can be.  In all the years we've been operating we've only ever taken a bank transfer twice.  Both were from individuals we knew, one because cash wasn't immediately available and the other because an advance was transferred to cover some travel costs.

 

Now... how do we enter Escort Agency of the Year for 2014 and wrestle away their crown? :lol:

We've had girls travel to Hong Kong and Singapore and taken bank transfers for half before the girls set off.

 

Do please let me know when you enter and we will join in too with the wrestling :blink:<_<:P:ph34r:

Well I never did take them up on their offer of a bank transfer, Although I did manage to contact the girl that caught my eye through a different agency but she wanted £500 for 2 hours ( + cab fare ).... I politely declined.

 

Called up a different girl (new girl for me) who informed me that she was available & would ring me when she was on her way, that call never came, could not get through to her either..... so decided to open my little black book, rang a semi regular, invited her over ... unfortunately she cancelled last minute... did not feel in the mood to ring around after that which resulted in a a 5* hotel room that saw no action ....  pretty frustrating evening to say the least !! ....

DKR, if that happens again, just give one of the agencies a call and ask who's available, then take your time checking the websites.  You don't have to commit just by asking the question, but reduce the risk of frustration!

Or carefully plan in advance.  There are lots of independents who are reliable.  My clients book me weeks or months in advance and only had a problem if mother nature interfered with our plans of which they were always informed.  Nothing wrong with being honest.
