    Thumbs down What's the point of Verified Photos?

    Just visited a girl who was clearly not the person in the Verified Photos. Now, I took a risk going for someone who didn't allow reviews, but I did put some trust that at least it would be the right person given that EI was standing over the photos.

    This was only the beginning of the false advertising in the profile. In my view there should be somewhere to give warnings to other punters in lieu of a review if there is something obviously fake in an escort's profile. But if I point it out in the forums am I just going to get a ban?

    Hi there,

    Verified photos are there to show that the escort has proven to us and to tell you that it is her/him in the photos.

    Some escorts may have had their photos touched up, but this is completely normal.
    Many escort also hide their faces for security or personal reasons.

    If it is completely the different person in the photos, then this is entirely upto you to decide if you wish to continue with the booking or not.
    If you choose to stay, then you will lose the right to submit a review.

    https://www.escort-ireland.com/help/...formation.html

    (k) In the event that a client turns up for a booking and accepts a booking from a different escort (i.e. not the escort from the profile), then the right to review has been forfeited. There is an option to review an escort under the category, 'met escort, but left without receiving services', should the booking be declined on this basis. Remember; if you have been fooled this far, don't expect the escort to provide the full list of services on the profile either!

    You have the power, believe it or not to report each profile that you may think is using fake photos.
    But when doing so, you would need to provide us with an active and valid link.

    If you feel that you wish to warn other user about escorts using fake photos or for any other reason, then you can by posting in the 'Warning Section'.
    HOWEVER!!
    You cannot mention any names or post any links, any information that you wish to share can be sent via PM.

    Provide a link to what exactly if you turn up and see its clearly a different person. Is there no background policy that if X people report bait and switch you ask for reverification? Or is simply a case that most punters go through with the booking regardless?

    It's perfectly normal for escorts to have photos touched up,
    I don't know how many ladies have photos blatantly changed so they are a completely different shape and almost unrecognisable.
    These shouldn't be considered genuine or verified.

    Floki,

    I am going to dispute the verification process, as I do believe that it is manipulated to suit ei. My photos that I originally used when I registered on here in 2007, we asked to be re-verified about 2 years. I sent in 3 sets of verification photos, all which ei rejected, as ei demanded that I send in photos wearing the same underwear I had in my 2007 photos, which was impossible. I also know that 2 of my friends submitted photos, that ei once again rejected their verification photos, & again, ei demanded that those girls sent in verification photos wearing specific outfits that were in some of their new photos.

    So here is my question, how can photos be verified when the photos are fake & the girls submitting those fake photos will not have that exact underwear or outfits as in the fake photos that they are submitting? Or is it 1 rule for independents & 1 rule for fakes? Ei made it as difficult as possible for me to have my photos verified 2 years ago, yet fake profiles & photos appear on a daily basis.

    That wasn't the issue here. This was a completely different person. The profile had clearly been verified at some point by EI, but by the time I got to be misled by the "Verified Photos" endorsement, it certainly was not the same person.

    If an escort touches up with photoshop, then that's a different matter, and a different debate.

    Yeah, but this person didn't allow reviews.

    Also done, just now.

    Look, I'm not trying to be a big swinging mickey on this, but I have some experience in managing businesses. The value EI brings to this business is in connecting good clients with good escorts. When bad clients and bad escorts abuse the trust, then it is actually to the long-term cost of EI. Anyone can replicate your website. It is much harder to replicate the trust that clients and escorts put in the system to connect them with the right people on the other side. So, if I were invested in your business, I would be doing my utmost to stamp out this kind of thing rather than just pushing it back on the client by saying "well, you went ahead with the booking". Right now, I have zero trust in the verified photos for obvious reasons. That makes me less likely to use EI as portal-of-first-choice for connecting with good escorts. I have more trust in the review system, which is good, and probably the main reason I would continue to use EI. But there are rumblings there also about deleted reviews, edited reviews and people having fear about leaving honest reviews at all. I see this as a risk for you guys also, and potentially an opportunity for a competitor who is willing to create and defend the value of trust in this business.

    Just offering (albeit unsolicited) advice. Do with what you will.

    Spot on! Couldn't agree more.

    Yes, the verified photos system can be and sometimes is manipulated.

    Some months ago I made a number of visits to an escort whom I really liked. Before she left Ireland she told me she was leaving and would never be back again. I got really excited a few weeks later when I saw her profile (with verified photos) advertised again. I thought she must have had a change of mind. But when I went to visit her it was a completely different girl (as different as chalk and cheese and also much less attractive). That "verified photos" profile is still being advertised on EI and any client who goes to visit is in for a serious disappointment.
