Men4Ladies / I was scammed
I know I am stupid, On the 11th of March I was looking for work in kent, uk, without luck, when I saw a advert in a local paper called Isle of Thanet Gazette, the advert was from Men4Ladies, the advert said there was a demand for Male Escorts, and I thought I would look into it as a means of earning some cash.
On the 13th of March, I filled a online form to become a male escort and on the 15th of March I had a phone call from a female called Candi, she told me she looked at my detail I had supplied, and to allow the female clients to ring me, I have to pay a fee of 249 or 349, and any money I pay will be paid back to me after the first booking, she then asked if I was available for the 20th of march, I said I couldn't work that weekend but I was free the next weekend.
On the 23rd of March I had a phone call from the agency saying they have a booking for me – They told me the booking was in Canterbury on Saturday 27th march at 20:30 PM with a French female who was looking for a escort near Canterbury, UK, I was told it would be a minimum of 3 hours / £450, she told me Candi would contact me in day or two to arrange a a bank payment.
On the 25th of March, I had a phone call from Candi saying they I need to pay the fee of £349 and she gave the details for the account but did not mention the what bank it most be paid into, so I set up a bank transfer from my nationwide flex account to the account she mentioned, I rang Candi and told that the money has been paid by bank transfer and it might take 1 to 5 days to transfer, she asked if I paid it at Barclays, I said it was nationwide Flex Account, she said she would see if I would need to make a payment, I had a second phone call a bit later saying wait until Saturday to see if the money had cleared.
On the 26th of March I had a call from Candi in the early evening, she told me the money had not been transferred, so I said I would go over to Ramsgate to pay in the money at the Barclay's Bank Branch as my branch in sandwich is closed on a Saturday.
On the 27th of March I went over to Ramsgate to pay the money in and fax a copy of the receipt to them around 11.20 am, I phoned Candi just after I faxed the receipt, I told her the money was paid in and I have faxed a copy of the receipt, Candi told me she would go down to the booking office to get the booking ready, around 1 pm that day I had a call from Candi welcoming me to the company, and I would be able to log on to my profile on Monday 29th March and the client would contact me to arrange a meeting place in Canterbury, I received no phone call from the client, I waited all afternoon and early evening, right up to the time of the booking.
I decided to a search google on Men4Ladies and came across this website www.SW5.info, and found that the company Men4Ladies was a company who was running a scam, and quite a few people have fallen fall the scam just like me.
