There comes a time when every escort runs into a con. Have you ever worked 2 or more hours only to find that you were working for free? You would be if you received counterfeit cash! And there is lots of it floating around!
This happened to me for the first time just a few weeks ago. Happy to say that things have been set right and I was paid for services rendered.
He was a guy I seen a couple times before the event. Once again he came over, this time for a 2-hour appointment, and slipped the white envelope into my hands. I did in fact count the money while he was in the shower, a little rushed, I did not look at the bills too closely.
When the gentleman left, I started counting the cash again. This time I was taking my time to add up the amount. You see I love money, the feel of the crisp confetti under my fingertips, its unforgettable scent, and the symbol it carries. And that is when my fingers froze. Something was just not right, the bills felt smooth…
I started moving the note around trying to catch the holographic stripe reflect under the light. Everything looked as normal…the ink on the bill was also raised…
What the bank note did not have was the thin micro fibers that are scattered throughout the paper. The fake money I was holding was not printed on the right paper! That was the only thing that set it apart from a real $100.
The following day, after consulting a friend who confirmed my findings, I wrote an email to my client. In a straightforward manner I explained that the money he paid me with was counterfeit. That I was not certain what would be the best course of action, though I was thinking of taking it to the bank. Where they would ask me for the information of the last person who gave them to me. (This was just an innocent suggestion, but one that would allow him to consider what his next move would be.)
He responded by asking me to hold on to the money and wait until he sees me again. This did not sit well with me. Why should I sit around and wait to see him? When is he going to see me, in a week, two, three weeks? I wrote to him again, this time insisting that we get together as soon as possible. That it was my expectation to pay my bills out of the money I earned during our appointment. And that if we did not set this right I would no longer wish to see him.
He responded pretty quickly. And not only had he replaced my fee, I was rewarded with a generous tip ;)
Therefore I would like to link this post to a few websites that you may find useful. They can be used as a guide in keeping you safe from fake money ;)
