As an escort looking to make a name for yourself and a database of regular clients, the risk of running into a different types of scammers is huge. That’s why you should always be vigilant and keep your wits when receiving messages from unknown escort agencies, or when the agency you are looking to work with is requesting all kinds of weird things from you.
If you are an independent escort looking to work with an escort agency, or you are a newbie looking for an escort agency to offer you the support needed to get a jump start in this line of work, you will meet all kinds of scammers out there looking to rob you of your money. So, be vigilant, always do your research before contacting an escort agency or responding to a message received from an escort agency, and look for recommendations from other escorts or even clients.
Here are a few of the things, escorts should look for, to avoid agency scams:
· Escort agencies should be focused on clients
When entering the website of an escort agency look at the messages that greet you, see who the agency is really targeting with their marketing campaigns and promotions, and what’s their way of presenting the escort profiles. If the agency’s full attention and all the selling messages are directed towards grabbing the eye of the potential client, that’s a good thing. If, on the contrary, the focus of the agency is directed towards attracting escorts, then that’s a red flag for you and you should think twice before going forward with that agency, as you can be dealing with an agency scam.
· Clothes ON during interviews
If the escort agency you’re looking to work with is asking you to come for an audition, keep in mind that the audition should be exactly like a job interview, with questions asked by both parties – you and the agency, to see if both of you are ok with the conditions required to work together. There should be no audition that involves you taking your clothes off! And if that is requested from you, you should refuse immediately and direct your attention towards another agency, because you are most likely being scammed!
· You should not pay the agency
When working with an escort agency keep in mind that you should not be asked any kind of money by that agency. So, do not give them money in advance or agree to work with them on a credit card payment system, where clients are paying by card for your services. You should only accept cash and nothing else! Also, be careful when it comes to the tone used on your profile: an escort is never looking for a partner for sexual favors, instead, the only thing she is promising is her time and undivided attention.
· Your clients list is your own
As an escort you will soon start to create your own client list with the contact information of all the clients you are dating or about to date. This list is your own and no one else has the right to use it, so under no condition accept to give your client list to the escort agency. That client info that you possess is confidential and are for your eyes only, so keep it that way, even if the agency is selling the “we want to sell your escort services better by using our marketing specialists to create personalized messages for your clients” speech. This is just another agency scam when the agency is trying to rob you of your client list and use it for themselves.
· Use escort agencies that are recommended by others
When looking for an escort agency to work with, to avoid agency scams as an escort try to go by recommendation. Ask other escorts you might know about the agencies they are working for, or about agencies, they have positive feedback on, or even ask your clients if they have used the services of an escort agency before and if they were happy with the way things went. And if the answer is yes, ask the name of that agency and start doing your own online research.
