How to spot fake escort profiles/ads/sites/reviews ?

So you have decided to make the leap, but you don’t know how to go about it. You have heard about all the scams in the adult industry; from bait and switch to no shows or just plain lying.

In countries where prostitution is illegal, the problem is compounded by the fact that there is no recourse should you get scammed.

Obviously, like most things in life, references and recommendations from friends are usually the best source of information; but which friends would really share this kind of information ? Let alone admit to using escort services at all…

However, many cities or regions have review boards that you can join and/or consult. You will find reviews on many possible ladies of interest. You want to look for a well reviewed lady and/or agency. No reviews doesn’t mean bad, it can just mean the lady is new to the business. Research the reviewers also; many are fake.  You can read Janet’s excellent blog post (March 31st2018 : https://thevelvetrooms.com/en/blog/escort-reviews-trustworthy.html); it goes into more depth on the subject.

When perusing escort ads or sites, it is useful to keep in mind that if it seems too good to be true, it probably is. Use Google to search for the profile pictures online; you should be able to tell if they are real or borrowed. Steer clear of girls that use those borrowed images; it’s a fake ad/site/girl; classic bait and switch.

It helps to do a web search of the phone numbers found in ads/sites/profiles. There should be a history to the number, and it should be consistent. The same number for two different girls that pretend to be independents usually means that you calling an underground agency or simply a pimp. Once again, don’t waste your time if it’s the case.

Judge the quality of websites. An agency or independent lady that respects itself or herself will have a tasteful and professional website. Expensive websites do not necessarily mean better service, but it does indicate a commitment to the business. When agency owners or independent courtesans invest thousands of dollars on a website, it surely is not to be running an overnight scam that will be found out before the investment is recovered.

By the same token; a simple, self made website doesn’t mean it’s a scam or fake; especially if it’s an independent escort’s site. It can be that she is new to the business and doesn’t quite have the money to invest in a top notch site just yet; it can also be that she doesn’t plan on being in the sex industry that long or doesn’t yet know if sex work is for her.

Where an escort receives from (incalls) and places she is willing to go (outcalls) says a lot about her or her agency. Sleazy motels/hotels or bad neighborhoods are not places where quality ladies/agencies that respect themselves do business; they should want to meet in a safe, clean, and classy place.

Finally, and this is the most important criteria, never let the little head decide for the big head when something smells fishy about an escort profile/ad/site/review. Supermodel pictures on a cheap website with great prices, no reviews and a non-existent phone number history is assuredly not good…
