Escort Agency Scams

‘Become an escort and earn £££££s’

So you have decided to become an escort. You need the cash to clear those debts, you have done your research and understand what the job entails. You are not going to be paid hundreds of pounds an hour to go out to dinner, there is more to it than that.

With so many sites offering to sign you up and claiming that you will be earning ££££££s it is essential that you do your research. Not all of these sites are legitimate – far from it – and those that are not have been set up with the sole intention of ripping off men and women who are often already in dire straits financially.

Having heard lots of complaints about unscrupulous website operators taking your money with no intention of providing any service, we have put together this brief guide to help you avoid some very common pitfalls.

Never pay an escort agency a joining fee

Perhaps the most important point I want to emphasise is that a reputable escort agency WILL NOT charge you a joining fee. Instead, they will charge you a commission on any work they get you. This means that they do not get paid until you get paid. Avoid any agency that asks for cash up front and those that require clients to login before they can see any escort details. Some of these agencies advertise 0871, 0844, 0845 etc numbers so when you call to complain they earn money!

If an agency signs you up for free and then asks for money to ‘maximise your profile’ this again would be a time to walk away. A reputable agency may ask you to pay for a professional photo shoot (in which case you would pay the photographer and have ownership of the photos), but would never charge you a fee to add photos to their site. Avoid anyone who does – they are not working for you but for themselves only.

A common trick used by the dodgy agencies is to tell you that they have a job for you….their client is desperate to meet you….but that you need to pay their joining fee first. Don’t be tricked – you will never hear from them again.

Do your research and don’t get conned!

Male escorts and escort agencies

Are you a straight guy who wants to earn some extra money working as a male escort? Getting paid for having sex, great! Almost certainly too good to be true I am afraid – I have yet to meet a straight guy who works in this industry with any success.

So many bogus websites advertise for male escorts because, let’s face it guys, you must be easy targets. You are NOT going to earning a living pleasuring frustrated housewives. If you find a website advertising heavily for male escorts they fall into the ‘bogus avoid!’ category and will charge you a fee somewhere along the line with no chance of a return.

If you really are set on escorting follow the advice below on ‘finding a good agency’ – you are looking for a site that advertises mostly women and only a couple of guys.

Finding a good escort agency

A well advertised agency is a good start. A reputable agency will spend thousands of pounds a year on advertising to ensure that their girls get regular work. You will find various links to the agency website from a variety of well established UK punting directories often with reviews if the agency is well established. You will not be charged to join!

A good agency site will be created with the client in mind rather than the escort – that is, the site will place great emphasis on selling escort services and a little on recruitment. Escort photos and details will be publicly accessible without the need for a site login.

Expect to be invited to interview! A good agent will have a regular client base and a reputation to keep up. They will want to see you in the flesh, get an idea about your personality, talk you through what is involved etc. Be up front with them from the start, do not tell them you are 28 when you are 38 or send them photos that are 10 years old.

Do not give bogus escort agencies your money!

    Hi Suzanne,

    I wholeheartedly agree with your views on scam escort agencies. It’s especially bad for guys and I’ve heard from tons who have been duped into parting with their cash to ‘join’ an agency. Personally, I feel it’s best for a man to set up as an independent male escort.

    Hi
    I have been approach by a so call non sexual escort agency. They wanted me to pay £340 registration and advertising fee. I only had £200, they said they would then offer me a 6 month contract for only £200. I send them 4 photos, I had no interview and was told I had clients waiting to start. I thought how could I have clients if I have not paid the registration or advertising fee. I am now waiting for them to send me their bank details, which is in Portugal. So I can make my payment of £200. I am waiting for a response from them regarding payments. Their website ends with .net and telephone number starts with 087….
    I am pretty sure this is a scam
