Regardless of how long she’s been in the business, no escort can tell 100 percent of the time that a client is a good one and not a threat to safety or freedom. It’s impossible to tell over the telephone simply by the sound of his voice or the consistency of his answers. It’s imperative that escorts verify new clients to ensure they are not safety risks or undercover law enforcement officers. A client with motives other than to “relax” with an escort is not a good client to have. Here are the seven best ways escorts can verify new clients:
- Check a client’s residence. Local clients might ask an escort to outcall to their residence. In today’s information age, it’s possible to almost instantly check on whether or not a client is who he says he is based on real estate records and information. County websites often have appraisal and tax information on real estate parcels linked to names of the owners. With a few keystrokes, an escort can run a quick check to determine if a client’s name matches the address of the home or estate he is requesting her to come to for an appointment. If the client’s name fails to match up with the ownership record, a follow-up call may be warranted to acquire more information.
- Perform an Internet search using your client’s first and last names and the location where he resides. For instance, if a client claims his name is Jack Jones from Peoria, Illinois, search for a Jack Jones who lives in Peoria. Many clients of high-end escorts belong to groups or organizations or own businesses in their home towns and appear in newspaper articles or in other documents associated with their communities.
- Investigate whether a client’s occupation matches the information you find online. Most legitimate clients won’t hesitate to tell you the general industry they work in when you’re interviewing them prior to setting up an appointment. Some men are resistant to fully revealing their employers (justifiably so), but they may let you know their general occupation. For instance, a client may tell you simply that he is in the medical field or works as an attorney. This is enough information for you to conduct an Internet search to see if his information matches up with what you can find online. General searches may reveal enough information to verify your client; however, more extensive research may be necessary. Industry-related organizations (American Bar Association, American Medical Association, etc.) may reveal the information you need. Some state websites provide information about business owners who require licensure or certification for their businesses. Additionally, small business owners may be found listed under business licenses or similar regulating bodies.
- Do a reverse phone look-up using the number the client called from. Using your caller ID for the information, look up the phone number your client used to call you online. Additionally, a general search on the number may yield the information you need, especially if your client called from a business phone.
- Return a call in an hour or so. Don’t do this immediately and don’t warn your client that you will be doing this. Calling unexpectedly may catch a client in a falsehood when the phone is answered in a way that is inappropriate, such as by a police officer or someone other than the client.
- Match the client’s name to his hotel registration. Call the hotel that your client is staying at, and ask for your client by name. If the hotel does not have a client registered by the correct name, avoid making an appointment with your prospective client.
- Ask your client for identification when you meet up for the appointment. Even though confidentiality is important when it comes to the escort industry, you have a right to verify that your client is who he says he is. Check his drivers’ license or passport. If he tells you he has no identification, refuse to move forward with the appointment. All men who have the means to hire an escort should have identification required to fly on an airplane, rent a car or book a hotel room.
If a potential client sends you an email, run a search for their entire email address and note the context in which it appears. Imagine if an email “email@example.com” appears to be registered at Officer.com.
In the same email address, mark the part before “@”—in our example, “client”. Some people never change it for all their online services, which is where NameChk.com and KnowEm.com come in handy. If your client is registered with the same username on an online service, here’s your chance to learn more about him or her.
