Escort Agency Scams

‘Become an escort and earn £££££s’

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. As scintillating as your conversation skills may be, you are NOT going to be paid hundreds of pounds just to go out to dinner, you realise there is more to it than that. An escort is always a prostitute/sex worker.

With so many sites offering to sign you up, 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 bogus 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, I 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 escort agency signs you up for free and then asks for money to ‘maximise your profile’, again this 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.

Last but not least, remember there is no such thing as a non-sexual escort agency. Men do not pay hundreds of pounds to buy you dinner or take you to the theatre. Anyone telling you they run a no-sex escort agency IS A SCAMMER.

When it comes to ‘social’ escorting, these are the sort of people you will ALWAYS be dealing with: For every Tony Muldoon they jail, another ten are waiting to step into his shoes.

    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.

  • David Earl

    Thankyou so much. I was just about to pay a registration fee to (£220) to one of these agencies.

    • Sarah

      Hey. Just wanted to know whether it actually ended up being a scam or not ?

      • BigSuzyM

        Ladies – if you re-read my post above you will see this is a scam. There are NO non-sexual agencies, they are all scams. Also, anyone asking for money up front is a scam. Do you really think the police would provide an escort agency with a criminal record check? Without wishing to sound too rude, USE YOUR COMMON SENSE.

  • Sonia

    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


  • Andre

    Hi I was approached by this non sexual escort site here in the UK and asked me to pay £375 before seeing a client in Soho for dinner for four hours, in return the client will pay me £820 in cash I was about to wire the money don’t think i’ll go ahead with it now,

    Thanks for the post!

  • Mannique

    Beware of The Companion Group. I paid £180 after I was told a client was ready to book me for a Dinnerdate. After I paid, the client as well as the Agency disappeared off the radar. When I was called about the so-called booking I could hear a child crying in the background which raised suspicion that someone was calling me from their residence and that there was no such official setup.
    Tell everyone about The Companion Group being a huge scam.

  • Caroline

  • Steve

    Hi can anyone recommend a decent agency, almost all are asking for a joining fee and I am far to suspicious to send any money, thanks..

    • BigSuzyM

      If you are a straight male, there are no decent escort agencies. If you are gay, you should be able to find plenty. The only buyers of sex are men.

  • david

    hi I received a call from club-mystique the other day explaining there escort service I just wanted to know if anyone has herd of them before, as the asked me to pay £400 joining fee. Is this a legit agency ??

    • BigSuzyM

      Read my post above again. Of course it is not legit.

  • Liza

    Hi, I joined agency club elite, 3 weeks ago, I’m attractive slim and have had no work, I was told someone internationally wanted to see me but they wanted £1500 for advertising I said no way , I paid £175 to join as said would pay rest after work, has anyone ever had work off them????

    • Shannon

      Liza, the same thing happened to me and the same company. I have not had any work from them at all. They used the same story. :-( so angry!

    • Elaine

      The same story to me, they asked me for that amount I said no way, alarm bells rang, I checked them out, why do two different people ask for two lots of different money, they told me I could earn £2000-00 from a Gino, I said wow, that takes a lot of believing for having dinner and chatting about the world, checked them out, they said they where on Canary wharf, no address for them on there, then I fond this page, so glad I did as later they phoned again saying they would accept £300. I said no as I read this by then , doubt if i will hear from then ever again, and not had work of them

  • samantha briggs

    Did any of you find out if club elite was scam or not?

    • Elaine

      Def a scam

  • George Francis

    I too had a phone call from Club Elite Escorts responding to an application i sent them over a month ago. They basically made all of these ideal promises saying transport is provided for all bookings, they make all the arrangements and that i make £350 three times a week. Luckily I’d already read this article prior to the phone call and was already skeptical about the joining fee. I told them that i’m aware no escort agencies ask for a joining fee and they made up a lame excuse about how the fee goes towards advertisement. I’m not convinced. Also relating back to this article you can’t actually see any of the escorts on their website as they conveniently have it as ‘members only’, however they have a large section on applying to work for them. Watch out for these guys as they’re likely only going to scam more and more people.

    • Elaine

      Reading all the reports, I nearly fell for this as well, they were telling me the same if I paid £1200-00 I would get European clients, they then took it down to £500-00, I would be receiving £2000-00 on my first European Client, that sounds great but to good to be true,
      I have scanned the net for scams after reading this, I got a phone call saying I would get Uk Clients to build up my bank balance, this I am now waiting for their call,
      If this happens I will let you know, if you don’t hear from me in a week you know, it is as you say a scam,

  • russ
