    What difference would it make. What was there to save face about. What value to drive me crazy. She wanted a session. I assume she hoped I wouldn't be annoyed.

    "After attending to a few items, I checked my *****, and there was an ***** from her stating " I apologize for the screening information request however it is necessary for my safety as you can imagine. Anyway, I have all your information now so if you'd like to call back that is fine."

    How do you know that she really did what she claimed to have, rather than make it appear as if she did? Perhaps she just said that to save face or to drive you crazy wondering whether or not she actually was able to get your personal information?

    I started sending the shit back this week. Rather than leave it blank I wrote on it that as long as they keep sending out this junk mail than I was going to continue sending it back to them and wasting their money. I'm trying to get as many people as possible to do it as well.

    Tape the postage prepaid card/envelope to a brick and throw it in the mail.

    Fuck that. Send 'em some flat pieces of scrap metal.

    Or, an old bald tire.

    There was a report on CNN last night by Jeanne Moos about everyday things that annoy people and how they do things to get back at those that piss them off. One of the situations was all this junk mail pre-paid response cards. One person just takes them and mails them back not filled up, knowing that the marketing company has to pay for the postage. In in cases where thereis an envelope, they would fill it with stuff to weigh it down to increase postage charged. Send it all back! Wish I thought of it first.

    skellychamp, Im greatful you posted this info, I cant begin to tell you how upsetting it is to me.
    There has to be a certain line that represents trust, and if one decides he or she has to cross over it, and is not comfortable, then the other party should let it rest, and respect that decision of the other party.
    Once that respect falls apart, so will confidence in many providers.
    Thankyou again for the post, it really hit home.

    As an aside, I do something similar to that. I take all my junk mail once a month and put it into one of the included postage paid envelopes & send it back. I rotate who gets it each month.

    I try to get call back numbers from phone solicitors, then I give them to anyone that requests a phone number, like a retail store, or somewhere where they punch it into their computer and then sell the lists to other phone solicitors. If all Americans kept doing this, eventually, theyd all be calling themselves.

    whenever a salesperson asks for my phone number, I always give them a fake number.

    I never gave it to Radio Shack & I don't give it to providers. There are too many options out there. The information that they say is for their protection is withheld for my protection.

    Ditto to what gern said - giving a provider personal info. is a no-no in my book (and this coming from someone who has engaged in bbfs.....perplexing, I know).

    This reminds me of the days when you'd stand online to check out at Radio Shack and you'd hear the salesperson elicit a bunch of personal info. from a customer - name, address, home phone. It always amazed me that people would cough it up without a bit of hesitantcy, either. I could see the address for mailers, but I never understood why they would need your phone number.

    Buzz - there was no agency involved. All of the pornstars I see are direct contact.

    I can understand the need for verification and since I'm open with them about my business info- hell there is even a website about my company and me where they can see my picture - that it is easy enough to verify me. If they still don't feel comfortable then they don't have to see me. She just shouldn't have taken it further when I said that I didn't want to do that.

    Provider references I don't give, mostly because most of these women are not reviewed.

    Yeah - you pretty much made the point I was dancing around.
    Why voulentarily give them all the info they need to potientially blackmail you!?? Why get involved in a situation that can only be no-win for yourself?

    How about "Sorry, I'd be happy to give you references, but I don't give out that sort of information to anyone. If that's a deal breaker, than thank you for your time. Goodbye."

    Again - not trying to diss anyone - I just don't get giving a hooker personal info that you wouldn't give to the drycleaner, your doorman, or anyone else you delt with only casually.


    again, my $.02
