This whole Eliot Spitzer thing is giving me all sorts of information on prostitution that I never knew before. For example, did you know there is a database of all the Johns?
I would have thought that the clients would want to protect their privacy more. I don't understand what stops a private investigator from contacting one of the verification companies. Or for that matter what stops the verification company from blackmailing the clients.
Q. Do you typically know the true identity of your clients, and if so, how?
A. Yes. Always. I insist that they give me their full names and their place of work so that I can contact them there before we meet. I also check their identification when we meet. I also use verification companies, which assist escorts in verification of clients. These companies do the verification of the client and put them in a database so that when the client wants to meet with a girl for the first time, he doesn’t have to go through the verification process again. For a fee, I can call in and they will tell me if the client has a history of giving the girls problems, where he works, and his full name.
