I came across a Companion agency as mentioned above which offers events for you to attend with clients which varies from Corporate parties to casinos etc. I liked what I had read in their T&C's as no way did they entertain anything sexual and was flexible. The pay was well and you could even do a free search to see the type of jobs were available and hourly rate.

After viewing this I then decided to register, after registering they sent an email confirmation confirming my success of application. I then receiving text messages every other day after receiving the email confirming jobs that were available and if I was available to attend. Within my confirmation email it stated there was a one off admin fee of £50.00 which is required and covers the following;

• Driver to take you to and from bookings
• References checks on Clients
• Security and profiles etc

I didn’t make payment straight away as I was thinking about it, however throughout this time I was getting jobs that were coming up as available and even received a call from a booking agent asking if available. I confirmed yes but haven’t paid the admin fee so until then I am not available and I didn’t confirm if I was going to make the payment. He said that was fine and I have the details if I want to proceed.

Eventually I thought why not and paid, After making payment I kept an eye on my emails as they said once payment has been received you will send confirmation via email and can start on bookings. It’s been nearly a week and have had nothing. I call the number on the site only to hear that it goes straight to voicemail and unable to take any further voicemails due to being full. I have sent numerous emailed and no one has got back to me. I called the number of the agent that called before and have had either no answer or straight to voicemail.

It is clear that they have now have got what they want and that’s that, but I'm extremely annoyed that I have been scammed of £50.00 and taking a big advantage of people who genuinely show interest. I want my £50.00 back ASAP!
