Strippers steal $400 from party
SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA -- For New Years a few of my friends decided it would be fun to throw a party and hire some strippers for entertainment. we searched online for a site with photos so we could pick out the girls we liked. After calling what appeared to be a private number we were told that the rate was $150/hr per girl and that for every 3 men we had at the party we would have to hire an additional girl. We decided on 2 girls for an hr and set the time for 8pm.
At 9pm the girls finally arrived, and we noticed that neither of them was the girl that we had originally called. No explanation was given to us when we asked where she was. They asked to come into the house to make sure everything was on the up and up and then proceeded to run through all the rules and stuff with us. Then they asked for the money, $50 for every person there, a total of $400. After the money had exchanged hands and been pocketed the girls then informed us that they were in fact not strippers but escorts. They said that they do private shows only and that they would require an additional $300 in tips up front just to perform. They also indicated at that time that sexual favors would be included in the prifate show.
We told them that there had been a mis-understanding and that we had only wanted strippers, not escorts or prostitutes. We were not interested in a private show, nor did anyone at the party have an additional $300 to give them. We apologized for any inconvenience this may have caused and asked for our money back. We were then told that they had a no money back policy and we would have to call the agency to complain. We then asked if we could have at least half of the money back and again we were told no, and then told that if we were not going to provided them with the additional $300 they were going to leave. One of us went to call the service while the rest of us waited. As we were on the phone the girls told us that they were going to go wait in the car. We asked them to wait in the house and they refused. They then ran, not walked, to the car, jumped in and started it and prepared to leave. I ran down and stood behind their car and asked them again for at least half of the money back and they refused. They screamed at me to move and threatened to call the police, even attempting to back over me when I refused. eventually I moved and let them leave thinking that we would be able to settle any problems through the service. The service said they would call the girls and then told us that they were not answering their phones. They also repeated to us that they offer no refunds. Eventually they stopped answering our calls, and we have not received any calls from the service in the days that followed.
