Escort Q: How can I tell when a caller is trying to fool me?
Thanks for the question.
Sometimes we get mean callers who want to waste our time or hurt us.
It's good to develop an awareness of what to look for to avoid small things like wasting your time going to a fake address, or being led into a trap in more high risk areas.
From my experience, here are some thing to listen and look for that are red flags.
People who try to fool you will either not have their information memorized or will fumble for certain details. They may be evil, but at least they're stupid, and stupid you can manage.
1) They forget or do not disclose normal details, such as their name (or a name to call them). When you ask for their address, they may forget to include the apartment number. Out of context, they may seem like innocent mistakes. However, a person who is determined to meet you and hire you does not want things to get messed up and will make an effort to be clear.
2) When you speak to them (and always speak to your caller before seeing them), they seem distracted, unable to focus, and provide intermittent communication. You can confirm this by asking them to tell you about themselves and what they like. If they fumble or give generic answers, you're probably facing a problem. A person who is spending luxury money on you has a very specific idea about what they want to experience.
Always verify the address of where you are going, and if you suspect someone of an issue, you can meet them outside your place and check them out first. It's very easy to say that the doorbell or buzzer is on the fritz and you have to bring them up.
