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:

    Stay away from Exotic Entertainment and Jason. They almost got me with the same scam. Jason's number is 213-949-8069. They ask you to money gram them $295 as a deposit and you will get it back in 30 days. BS. When I asked him about speaking to someone else he claimed he was the only person available at that time. I called back the following morning and the phone just rang over and over with no voice mail.
