Is this really much an issue?
I get the impression most girls prefer to take bookings by phone?
Probably makes it easier to hide from the taxman
I also thought it was easy to get another ID on AW...

I've been told I have a note on my AW profile marking me as dangerous which was put there about 1 month ago. Now considering I have met anyone off there for nearly a year I can only imagine (well I'm sure!!) it was put there as an act of revenge for asking a friend ( of sorts) who is a escort on AW to pay back what she owes me. !!! Nothing I can do about it which seems unfair as I have no right of reply and also it doesn't show who wrote it ( in this case its easy to work out)

So yes its easy to abuse. I guess next time I try to book a lady I will find out if it hinder me or not.

You mean the hidden notes? The notes are against punter IDs and there doesn't have to have been a meeting booked via AW for the SP to leave a note. Just any AW email contact.

Yes
From what I understand next to your AW ID, you have notes in red, yellow and green which other verified WGs can see.
But if you just phone up and agree to see a WG, there is no need to worry about them
At the same time I appreciate if you're the sort to send emails first and book online it could be a problem
Some WGs can be malicious and label genuine punters as TWs for the smallest of things
System seems flawed to me and very easy to abuse

Or if you send an email and later book by phone. Since some girls don't list their number (they are charged to do so) it can be necessary to make email contact.

I think I may have a note against me which is totally unjustified but I don't know anyone verified to have a look see.  Its really weird. I put a Reverse Booking on AW and did comment that if people bid then they should be serious about meeting as I had a few timewasters and this spoiled it for the genuine service providers. I had a bid placed from someone that I have never met or emailed saying that I was a timewaster and I was always placing Reverse Bookings. I emailed her (bad move obviously) to ask her to explain as we have never talked and she repeated the same saying she had also placed comments in a "private" area that only providers could see. I advised that I had good but small (5) feedback and had never let anyone down - plus 5 RB's over 2 years was not excessive in my view !  Okay 3 of the 5 covered 3 weeks in a row but that was because I got a no show on the first one and someone arriving 4 hours late on the second!  We should be able to ask AW to see any notes against us as if she has left anything derogatory then that would simply not be fair !  Maybe I should name and shame her as any other clients that email and dont make a booking may be getting the same treatment ! If you are verified and would like to check me out then mail me !


I see what you mean.

I had a similar situation where a WG threathen me with this when all i did was comment on a booking she failed to keep.

It is a system that is clearly designed to warn WGs about bad punters but its being abused by some.

Oh i agree on the reverse bookings too, you get a lot of crap bids in my experience.

You could always try making a request to them under the terms outlined in the Data Protection Act.

The problem is that a lot of girls abuse this system for no other reason than they've been left anonymous feedback. Nor is there any requirement to add detail or evidence to their claims. I know I have a warning against my profile on AW for no other reason than I left negative feedback for a girl.

Think you might mean the freedom of information act.

I don't think he does

If AW was run by the British Government or other public body, then the FOI act would apply.

Unfortunately, as far as I know, AW is a shady foreign organisation to which the act does not apply.

Nope, data protection - under the terms of the act, a data holder is required to show you any personal data they hold about you (the subject), but they can charge you for doing so. I'm not sure if notes about you in AW would necessarily fall into the terms of this provision, but it's an interesting thought.

A FoI request would be to a public sector organisation, which I'm pretty sure AW wouldn't be.

That's where it falls apart, as I can't remember how the act applies to organisations outside of the country, but operating to a certain extent within it. It's been too many years since I was registered as a data holder and had to know this sort of thing.

I believe they operate from a hollowed-out volcano  :sarcastic:

I believe there is no distinction about where they are located but enforcing anything against them would be futile. In any case you'd have to prove they were holding personal data about you, not subjective comments by someone else about a manufactured persona of yours!

Well I am not going to lose any sleep over some 19 year old with an obvious chip on her shoulder leaving notes on my when we have never met or talked previously. I suspect that I am not the only one that she has left a note on as it probably gives her a feeling of power which she obviously lacks in her own miserable low life existence  :sarcastic:   If she can leave notes anonymously then if I were a Service Provider, I would not be happy about that! She could be leaving malicious notes on other genuine punters just because she doesn't like the tone of their Reverse Booking or email contact thus putting off genuine service providers. Luckily, as only verified providers can see the notes then that still leaves many that will be oblivious  - and I would hope that my good feedback elsewhere would take precedence over one note! Although it seems this morning that AW may be asking every new member to verify
