Aphrodite Companions busted
Another "reliable" high end agency got busted in the states. For those who partake in the U.S. especially in the Northeast may probably know about this agency since a few French Canadian/Toronto girls used them to tour the U.S. particularly NYC and Boston. When My Secret Club immediately closed down after some altercation with LE and because of that MGF stopped touring the U.S. all together around mid-2011/2012. A few U.S. agencies fill in the gap and Aphrodite was one of them. Prices maybe higher compared to when the Montreal agency directly tours but you know what you are pay for. This really sucks. I didn't know what happened until today since I e-mailed them a couple of times in July/August and suddenly things went dead and the website was gone. Now I know what took place.
Great. Now law enforcement has my name since they have access to the client list. LOL. What are they gonna do? Arrest yours truly? Well I am not some famous politician, high powered executive or any other well known public figure so nothing fun is going to come out of moi. I am just a typical horny bastard with some money to spend on some good tail.
Aren't agencies not supose to keep your contact informations and such? In any case i doubt they can arrest you... Not enough proof to charge... If you where known it could be a media problem, but since you say your not... then i think your clear.

Well I am not that concerned about being busted/exposed. I am nobody. Thank goodness. Plus also I don't work at the company the agency used for verification since I am self-employed now. Also the company used is my old firm in Montreal and they closed shop. LOL.
Many U.S. agencies will keep your info for their safety since it is illegal in the states. So they know you are a legit horny bastard willing to dish out the cash. Just upset a reliable establishment even though expensive compared to Montreal/Toronto got busted.
Ahhhh... better to stick to Montreal and Toronto for hobbying.

Since this has happened I canceled the account and opened it up new with a different number.
There is really no risk of arrest, Numerati. You just purchased an hour of time. There is no way to prove an illegal activity occurred, even if you wrote a review that is labeled as anonymous by the review site. The only guys to have been charged for actual sex are those poor "porn stars" in the Maine Zumba case where they were unwillingly videotaped. And the cases against those guys seem to be falling apart since the judge ruled that our favorite Zumba instructor does not have to testify. I think the latest guy who demanded a jury trial in the matter got acquiited by the judge for lack of evidence. The arrests of johns in the U.S. do not involve sex but instead involve the soliciation of sex by the john when the lady is in fact an undercover cop. That is why it is so nerve-racking to see an unreviewed provider.
And releases of names on a client list are extremely rare following a bust. It happened in Arizona (which I personally do not view as an actual state, but a wild west territory ruled by sherriffs, pronounced Sheerfs by the Arizonians), and even in that case law enforcement opposed the release but could not stop the media from getting the list under the state's unusual freedom of information law. Of course, the Maine Zumba guys got their names released since they were charged with crimes.
I think that one of the reasons that names are not released is that most agencies put lots of fake information in their client list, including policemen, politicians and newspaper editors. The judge rules that no public benefit would be obtained from the release of the names since none of the customers are to be charged and usually none of the escorts are to be charged and the list may falsely contain the names of people who did not in fact use the services. So there is really nothing to be concerned about. I have been on the lists of plenty of busted U.S. escort services and I have never gotten a phone call. These busts happen all the time. The biggest hassle for the guys is finding their favorites afterwards when they go independent or join another agency.
Just speculating here, but would the agency owner benefit from keeping a real list so it could be used as leverage in any plea bargain?
They keep the list to avoid having to re-screen constantly.
But these agency busts are not about imprisoning people. The guy who co-ran Miami Companions, which was the biggest agency ever busted, got a year or so in jail if I remember correctly and one of the women owners got 2 days and the other lady owner got one day in prison. The prosecutor got a bit huffy when the reporter asked if the judge was sending a message with the one and two day sentences.
The agency busts are about seizure of assets. Most of them do not pay taxes, even though they should. And the government has incredible power to seize assets obtained from running an illegal activity. These agencies get big and the owners get careless and the government comes in and swoops up the cash. The federal government is more concerned with seizing the cash of the agency than sending the owners to jail, and the federal government could care less about the escorts and customers (unless one of the customers is famous).
A lot of law enforcement agencies get a disproprtionate amount of their funding from asset seizures. Big escort agencies are a natural target.
Sure and the NSA will let you know if they decide to tap your phone or read your e-mail. Of course the agencies keep your info and distribute it to whomever they're associated with or become associated with. How do I know? My hobbying e-mail address still gets e-mails from agencies I've never heard off from CAD, Boston & NJ. Yet I'm in Florida and haven't seen a provider from an agency in three years. Do you think they don't have pics of you also? Duh, the girls take pics and upload them when they're calling in to confirm the date. Of course the best way to guard against this is to invest $19.95 in a portable cell phone jammer to carry with you. If you do something you'd be ashamed of the world knowing simply don't do it...Duh!!

She might have filed a complaint and gotten LE interested in them and the other agency. Another reason that LE would not be interested in the customers. But I do wonder where Anessa from Aphrodite Companions is working. She was there highest rated provider.
The agency could certainly do that. They would have an army of abused children that they prostitute as slaves for rich powerful pigs who rape them (no less than 40 of them every day, 7 days a week). These girls desperately want to quit. If asked to take over a plane, they would obey the masters's dictate, freeing themselves out of misery, joining the ever forgiving God in paradise.

Along with the motorist's in Montreal with the LE setting up sting operations.
Please forgive my ignorance. But is it that hard to book a flight to Montreal from NYC or Boston for a couple of hours of GFE with some of the loveliest SP's? I would do that if I could afford to live in NYC.

If I were Eliot Spitzer, I would have bought myself a condo in TO and fly there to recharge.
Sometimes the Montreal SP decides to stay away from the local turf and travels to the U.S. Plus when she travels to NYC for incalls all I need to is dish out money for the encounter and that is it. If traveling to Montreal/Toronto I would not be seeing just one SP. It would be around three to four. A Montreal trip with meals and hotel would come out to around $4,500 for the three/four days I am there. In the U.S. it would be around $600 to $800 for two hours.
Or when the Montreal SP comes down and I see her on her own time after her tour sometimes I just pay the price for two hours and it is an overnight encounter. That is if we have seen each other for a while and we get along.
