Well to go against the tide again, I think JRC's wrong.
From what I remember reading you have said you have been punting for 10 years. Think back 10 years ago, did you know all the things you know now back then? I cannot believe 10 years ago at your very first punt you would have been as knowledgeable of the scams as you are now?
As further to prove my point, from my understanding Nik setup this forum specifically to oust bad SP's and the scams. If it were so easy to spot a bad SP and scam then this forum would never have existed.
And as a final thing to add, as Smiths has suggested Escorting is an unusual business as its catching guys when they are down. And thus scams are more likely to work, and as the guy is embarrassed more likely to get away with it.
As opposed to comparing it to the people emailing you saying they have locked up millions and need your £1000 to unlock it. I would personally compare the scamming escort to those who offer miracle cures to people dying of cancer. If you think about it, if you were dying of cancer, and someone came along and said I have this amulet that cures cancer its 10k. You had 10k would you try it? If a guy sees a gorgeous girl offering sex, its a similar ball park.
