Driving Escorts

  • Share via E-mail

How the scam works:

Wanting to make some extra money you start researching possibilities, one day finding an ad from an “employment agency” looking for drivers.

Upon contacting them, they mention your clients will be escorts and you will be paid very well (including a commission, depending on the number of customers the escort has that night or week). You get the whole speech: they are looking for somebody credible, who can also protect and be trusted by the girls. It sounds good – great money, great possibilities, beautiful women, you are in!

The agency is asking the applicants to commit themselves with an up-front deposit of a few hundred dollars. That’s when the scam happens, as the drivers will never receive further instructions and the scammers count on the fact that the applicants will be too embarrassed to go to the authorities to report the scam.

How to avoid:

Well, not much really to say, is there? Firstly, don't get involved in shady practices. Find a legitimate way to make money while driving, maybe even get a cab license.

In the meantime, if you are really looking for a job and seek to make some money until you find the next ideal job, there is a couple of options for employment online:

    I talked to a guy named 'Dave'. He supposedly has been working for 'Fiji Islands Entertainment' for 18 years. The guy is very hurried about you paying the $299 membership fee to join. He tells you on a recording that you will make $37/hr salary plus 0-40 miles $100 41-80 miles, $200 commission. It's all bologna. He had me go to Rite Aid to go to Western Union and transfer my money to an an unidentified account in Brooklyn, New York. I filled out all the information he needed from me except I forgot one step. I realized it was bull when he asked me to put in a no ID test question for the transfer. That's when I knew it was horses ass. I told him it was all set without filling out the no id test question. He called me back about a half hour later telling me that I forgot to fill out the no ID test question (which he wanted me to input team: Red Sox). I told him sure, I'll fix it in which, as I returned to my house, called Western Union to cancel my transfer of $299 to a 'Raimi Towak'. She helped me get my money back but I was not able to get a refund on the $25 transfer fee. Better to lose $25 instead of $324. He called me again after that and was harassing me about how I'm not an honest person and how he hasn't lied to me once since we were on the phone. He said I'm a waste of his time. I got to play along at that point to have a BS conversation about how I'm going to end up a low life and make $500/ week as opposed to $6,000/week driving escorts. Dave was very good at scamming people, I could tell. Luckily I didn't fill out the no ID test question. Orherwise he would have easily accessed the money. I knew it was Crap because he was the only person on the recording, the recruiter to hire me, and the one who supposedly signs people on to start their shifts. I knew if this "13" state Fiji Islands Entertainment was actually a legitimate business, it's quite likely that I would have spoken to at least one different person in the process. So yeah, here is the recording # (860)231-2219, and his recruiting # (602)459-2207. I hope I help someone down the road. Save your time and money
