Slight variation on the 'Runner' scam, involving the use of an unknown Brighton hotel.

A general warning - not a specific one. I don't know the escort involved. All I know is, the escort involved was contacted through an AW profile so has advertised on AdultWork. Whether she does currently, I have no idea.

This week I had a booking with an escort who is based well out of our area and my booking took place outside Sussex.

During the half time break, we were chatting. She told me she had another client from Sussex and this man recently had £700 stolen from him at a Brighton hotel.... Obviously, I was interested and asked her what happened.

Apparently, the punter had found the escort on AW, a Brighton area girl, and he booked her for an overnighter with fee agreed at £700. The escort had told him which hotel he should book as she didn't like going into some hotels, so he booked the hotel she asked for. When she arrived on the night, she didn't want to go straight up to his room. She told him that for her security she wanted to meet him first in the foyer/bar/public area. He thought fair enough and agreed. She then asked him to pay her the fee (£700) at that point. Again, he thought fair enough as their meeting had started so he agreed, got the cash and passed it to her.

She then told him that as she was holding a lot of money, and again for her own security, she needed to pop outside quickly to give the cash to her driver/security person. Because she seemed nice and it sounded plausible, he said OK. She didn't come back and he was left standing around in the hotel foyer/reception/bar area, £700 lighter.

After his failed search for her, a member of hotel staff spoke to the distressed and confused victim to ask if they could help him and apparently he was brave enough to explain roughly what had happened to him. He was subsequently informed this had happened not long before at the same hotel and it was likely the same woman pulling the scam.

So it seems this was not a one-off and this 'escort' may ask clients to book this particular hotel for a reason - perhaps suitable public areas, easy escape route, handy nearby parking position for her driver/accomplice etc.

His subsequent phone calls and texts to her went unanswered and the phone number she had given him stopped working soon afterwards.

It would be better if I could tell you a Profile or description of her, and the name of the Hotel she asks clients to book, but I don't have this information. I did think about asking my escort if she could contact her other client to try and find out (on the basis that it could save another client of hers from a similar fate) but I decided not to - because her other client may be unhappy that she had described what happened to him to another client. (To be clear, she was very discreet and gave me no details about her other client whatsoever, other than to say he was also from Sussex and she was telling me what happened in this Brighton hotel as a warning so I could avoid the same thing happening to me).

Summary - Do not hand over a lot of money to an outcall escort in a Brighton hotel foyer / bar area. If an escort turns up at your Brighton hotel and insists on full payment downstairs before going up to your room - best to refuse - despite what your lower brain is telling you.

I would never book an overnight with someone that I haven't net before or hand over that amount of cash before the event.
It shows just how important this site is to pass on information on scams like this.

Maybe the hotel was chosen because it had no CCTV :confused:

If a girl says for her own security she wants to give the money to the driver you can do either or all of three things. Say that for your security you want:

1. A photograph of her to give to the police in case she does a runner or go with her to the car;
2. Her finger prints on a glass
3. Only give her half of torn in two notes and provide the other half plus a roll of sellotape at the end of the session

Maybe he really wanted financial domination and humiliation.
