Beware of photo scams from escorts in Amsterdam

Dishonest business practices are nothing new and exist in just about any type of business. Amsterdam escort agencies are no exception and the existence of phony agencies that lure in clients with false expectations is a tremendous problem in the sex industry. The fraud begins as soon as you see their supposed escorts, which are simply stolen pictures of models who the escort agency's unsuspecting clients have no hope of actually meeting. These dishonest escort agencies don't see any problem with using fake photographs to scam clients, and the harm they can cause is unfortunate.

Obviously, the scammed client is a victim in these situations but legitimate escort agencies are also very negatively affected. These agencies are running a professional, honest business with quality models who invest a great of money on professional photos. When beautiful, high-class girls put themselves out there it's not for the purpose of having their images stolen and used in a way that damages the reputation of reputable escort agencies. They have no reason to hide or use someone else's picture, and this is exploited. A client that doesn't know any better will see those glamorous photos and have no idea of their origin, making a decision that will lead to getting scammed. The plan of these fake agencies is to hook a client by advertising a model with a stolen picture but then having a different model actually appear. It's a classic bait and switch scam which a professional escort agency would simply never use.

Our independent Amsterdam escorts are also victims when this scam occurs with their picture being stolen. When an escort or a professional model has her images used without her consent, it is upsetting. A scammer is using her photos without permission and, in some cases, they may be modeling shots that were never intended to be associated with escorting. Reputable directories such AMSTERGIRLS consider using fake photos and engaging in a bait and switch to be unacceptable. Of course, not all directories have these standards and will still feature the fake agencies. And once a photo has been stolen, it's very hard for the model to get them removed and she has to make the effort to contact the web hosting company to get this done. This practice negatively affects the model, the customer and all reputable escort agencies in Amsterdam that run their business honestly.
