Thread: Bad Clients System by SMS

  1. Thumbs up Bad Clients System by SMS

    ** This post which had details of SMS bad clients system has been removed whilst we take onboard feedback that maybe we should not advertise it in public. The reason we would advertise it in public is that without doing so we cannot reach most escorts. Thread has been left up so clients can still comment on concept if they wish, as it has always been out policy to keep clients informed of such developments. **

    Default Nice idea but....

    I really do think that this is setting out to do something good but it seems to be setting up a hostage to fortune.

    When a client phones an escort to make a booking, at what point is the client informed that personal data about that client will be taken and passed to a third party? The E-I privacy statement cannot be considered to be sufficient as there is no guarantee that the client has seen the escort's profile on E-I because the escort's mobile number is likely to be rather more widely available.

    When a client is refused service because of an automatically generated warning, at what point is the client informed of this decision and given a chance to object. According to dataprotection.ie, Irish law specifically requires this!

    When an escort receives a response from E-I that contains any information other than a note to the effect that E-I has no information about the client, at what point does the escort inform the client of the identity of the person who originally provided the information?

    These are all requirements under Irish law.

    What steps does E-I take to ensure the accuracy of information and to allow people about whom information is held to challenge the accuracy?

    It seems to me that any escort who uses the scheme as it is currently set up is breaking Irish data protection laws and that E-I is breaking Irish and UK laws.

    I know that clients are very unlikely to complain but the authorities - who would very much like to close E-I and find a way to use the law against escorts might use this as a means to take action.

    There have in the past been a number of organisations in the UK that have maintained databases of individuals and their political views with regard to matters such as trade union activities. Those organisations have been closed down by action taken by the UK authorities under UK law and the companies who used their services have been hit by huge fines.

    It would be so easy for the Garda use this. Just monitor the E-I SMS facility and phone an escort. Watch the SMS and then go and meet and arrest the escort and then lay a charge regarding a data protection offense.

    Now they could release the escort on bail. They get to keep the mobile phone as evidence and one of the bail conditions could easily be that the escort makes no further use of E-I or any similar service until the case comes to court. Deprived of the main source of work the escort will get on the plane home and will most likely not turn up for the subsequent court case and will thus be unable to return in the future for fear of arrest.

    Eventually, after a couple of successful prosecutions, they could switch to the UK and go after E-I for accepting data that had been obtained illegally.

    In any case, perhaps the idea would not work anyway. You can get a free SIM card every time that you top up your pre-pay phone so an abusive client could easily switch numbers.

    The scheme is also open to abuse - "give me a bad review and I'll rat you as an abusive client."

    I expect that I'll get flamed for saying this or even for giving ideas to the Garda but I expect that they can work this out by themselves.

    Maybe because not all escorts have access to the private areas.

    What they can't send us an SMS? God knows they make enough money, sending out a few SMSes will save the shit storm that I see coming. Because we know how paranoid Irish punters are about their privacy. Remember the List-gate?

    I think was so clients could sell to escorts with no internet access.

    Because over 90% of escorts advertised on this site never register for the private forums. The only way to reach escorts that do not use the Internet is to provide SMS based services and advertise them widely.
