    Default Its getting to be a joke now...

    There are 32 profiles on the home page, and at time of typing this, 15 of these are fake profiles, i.e. profiles with unverified pics and review opt out. That's 50%... WTF!

    It just got me thinking. As a business plan, to those not as well versed as ourselves in all that is EI, would you not think at first glance that this site is a sham. You could imagine two guys down the pub.. "Yeah, I had a look last night.. a load of bollicks, Sher half of 'em are fakes.. and the other half could be dodgy too!.."... This is the possible perception. Not a very good first impression to the new customer. Now, we know that behind the wall of fakes, there is a wonderful selection of beautiful genuine ladies, but Joe-punter may not. I suppose it makes no difference to me, as I can spot a fake even before I even click, its just annoying, as I like to use the home page as a first glance of who has moved location or maybe spot somebody new, but this wall of fakes is getting out of hand.

    If I were marketing/business manager of EI I would allow fake profiles. After all, income is income. But to let it get out of hand is just going to come back and bite you in the bum. You wouldn't see Bill Cullen putting clapped out old bangers with a new spray job in his showroom windows while he has the genuine good cars in the yard behind. He'd be feckin mad!!! If it were my decision I would sent the following memo to Dev/Advertisment teams... "Fake profiles are allowed, But not on Home Page!"...

    What ye think guys 'n dolls?

    There still in business, so business plan seems to be working. Even the complaints about the new site by escorts doesn't seem to be damaging business.
    It does seem pics not verified to be a big source of revenue. You'd think punters would catch on or there not fused.

    A chemist who worked for ICI once went to his boss (John Harvey-Jones) with a revolutionary new chemical. John Harvey-Jones turned his idea down flat.

    He protested how useful the chemical was to mankind and ICI could easily make it and “after all ICI is in the business of making chemicals”.
    In a famous reply, John Harvey-Jones said, “ICI is not in the business of making chemicals. ICI is in the business of making money”.

    Escort Ireland is not in the business of helping clients meet escorts. It is in the business of making money, and in the short term, like all businesses. And they do not want to upset their paying customers.

    ICI, which once was Britain’s largest industry, is no more, partly because of John Harvey-Jones and the like’s short-sighted ideas.
    Escort Ireland is in danger of going the same way, especially as you say James, it loses its credibility with its final customers, the escort clients.

    But business is about short term profits, and the Escort Ireland mangers know, like John Harvey-Jones, that they will have moved on somewhere else before they have to sort out the long-term problems.

    I was reading the ads on Escort Ireland long before I even looked at the boards.
    Most users of Escort Ireland do not even progress to looking at the boards and don’t know what is going on.
    The mods have admitted they know most clients are not on the boards.
    And even amongst some posters who should know better, how many “she looks stunning but doesn’t allow reviews and has unverified pics” posts have you read?

    The fraud continues because it is successful. It is allowed because the fraudsters are paying Escort Ireland.

    As far as Escort Ireland is concerned it is a clear case of Caveat Emptor.

    Fake profiles are allowed, But not on Home Page

    That is why they are on the home page. Most people never look beyond the home page.
    Nice little earner for Escort Ireland. (Is Arfur Daley alive and well and the new EI owner?)

    But short-sighted.

    Good Morning,

    I am sure you have heard this all before but let me give you the official line from the company behind our reasoning:

    We do not want to discriminate anyone. We provide the same advertising opportunity to all our advertisers, regardless if they wish to verify their pictures or open their profile to the reviews. I understand that some advertisers might choose to avoid reviews for different reasons, but we still would like to protect those who wish their business to remain private in order to protect their privacy.

    There are advanced search options for the reviews and verification of the profile available. There will be more filters to be added on to make this more accurate. For now just please tick the boxes "verified photos" and "allows reviews" next to select language when searching.

    In other words,

    Caveat Emptor.

    It's all about money and those that pay call the tune The only way it will change is if thy charge the punters to view this site. But they no if that happens all fake escorts will stop advertising and half their income is gone
