Photo verification

What is a photo verification image?

The image should be a non-professional image of yourself holding a piece of paper with the handwritten words "Escort-Advertising" and todays date. We will then compare this image to the images that appear in your advertisement.

What is the Photo Verification System?

Before the Internet, when escorts only advertised in magazines etc, the adverts were usually just text or text and stock images, and so escort clients didn't generally get to see genuine photos of an escort before they made a booking. The Internet has changed all this though, and now escort clients generally expect to be able to see genuine photos of an escort before making a booking. However, some escorts appear to think it is ok to use stock type photos in place of recent genuine photos in their website advertisements today, even though we, and most escort clients too we believe, totally disagree with this.

We aim to strongly discourage the use of anything less than genuine recent escort photos on our website, and, with this in mind, we have developed a Photo Verification System, whereby we make checks on all the new escort photos we receive and clearly mark them as Verified if we believe they are recent genuine photos of the escort advertised or Not Verified if we do not have enough information to make that establishment. We then share this information with our website users, via publishing clearly on each escort's profile page (provided the escort has photos) whether his or her photos have been classed as Verified or Not Verified by us, so escort clients can benefit from this information when making any escort booking decision.

What does it mean if an escort's photos are Verified?

If an escort's photos are classed as Verified it means we have information that leads us to believe that they are genuine recent photographs of the advertised escort.

What does it mean if an escort's photos are Not Verified?

If an escort's photos are classed as Not Verified it means we do not have enough information to be confident that they are genuine recent photographs of the advertised escort. Please note: It does not mean they are not genuine, if we knew they were not genuine we would simply remove them.

What does it mean if an escort's photos are Awaiting Verification?

If an escort's photos are classed as Awaiting Verification it means we are in the process of checking the photos. The status usually only shows for a short period of time after the escort has submitted new photos.

Do we allow escorts to use fake photographs?

No, if we become aware that any escort's photos are fake, we promptly remove them. However, we do need more evidence than just one unsupported allegation, especially because this is unfortunately a business where people sometimes make false allegations about others.

I am an escort advertised on this website and I don't have Verified photos. What should I do?

If you are currently using fake photos, we would strongly advise you cease trying to get away with this now. There is no excuse for using fake photos. For your convenience we maintain a list of Escort Photographers or you could just get a friend to take photos of you.

The easiest way to get your photo status changed to verified is to log into our Advertiser Area and then upload your genuine recent photos including a verification photo of yourself holding a piece of paper saying "Escort Advertising" which we will not publish online but we will use to verify your photos. Once you've done this our staff will automatically review your photo verification status. Talk to our Advertising team if you have any further questions or would like help blurring out your face or other identifying marks from your photos.
