Now Servicing Westchester

It’s not hard to find sex for sale in Westchester. At least it didn’t take me long to find people who offer it. You can try it yourself: log on to Bigdoggie.net, Theeroticreview.com, Eros.com, or
Craigslist.com. If the number of listings for women who are looking to make a buck with their bodies doesn’t overwhelm you—on Bigdoggie.com alone, there were 15 women available in the Westchester/Fairfield area and many more in New York City—the number of reviews from guys willing to indulge them will. Multiple escorts who serve Westchester and Fairfield had more than 50 reviews. And if you’re confused by what you read, it’s not surprising. Escort sites have a language all their own. “GFE,” for example, means “girlfriend experience,” which means that an escort is willing to do anything a “good” girlfriend would do. But that’s just the most commonly used initials; most of the others cannot be described here………………………………..READ FULL STORY

Two people have been arrested in a Craiglist prostitution bust based out of a New Jersey veterinary office.

Somerset County Prosecutor Wayne Forrest and Bedminster Chief of Police William Stephens announced on Wednesday that a two-month investigation dubbed “Operation Net-Vet Harlot” resulted in the arrest of 50-year-old Cathy Rosania and 35-year-old David Baker.

Prosecutors say Rosania was the prostitute and Baker her business manager, or pimp. The office is located in the Pluckemin section of Bedminster Township.

Authorities say the investigation began when a Bedminster detective monitoring the Internet for criminal activity found an ad on Craigslist offering erotic services in the Pluckemin/Bedminster area.The officer responded to the ad and ultimately set up an appointment to meet with Rosania at the veterinary facility, located on Route 202-206 North in Bedminster, where Rosania was employed as a veterinary assistant…..READ FULL STORY http://abclocal.go.com/wabc/story?section=news/local&id=6296575

“friendliest madam” is back in business – and even giving cops a helping hand.

Julie Moya, known as “the madam with a heart” because she rescued so many animals before she went to jail in 2005, told the Daily News she helped the NYPD nab a Manhattan man accused of preying on hookers.

Todd Cunningham, 25, was arrested Monday on charges that he trolled for escorts on CRAIGSLIST and posed as a cop so he could rob and molest them.

Moya, who was sprung from prison in 2007, said she picked Cunningham out of a lineup after he tried the stunt at her new pleasure palace about three weeks ago.

“He tells [a hooker], ‘You are under arrest for prostitution!’ and he clipped on handcuffs. Then he comes out and says, ‘Everybody sit down. You’re all under arrest,'” Moya said.

“He did it just like cops do it.”

It was another call girl who first led cops to Cunningham.

When he showed up at the woman’s posh upper East Side digs, he flashed his fake identification and demanded cash “or else she’ll be in trouble.”

Cunningham then stole $4,000 and sodomized the woman, a law enforcement source said.

Police tracked Cunningham through the cell phone number he used to book his “date,” sources said. He even answered that phone with a brisk “Officer Woods!” sources said. Out on $25,000 bail, he declined comment.

Moya said Cunningham had a badge and cuffs and even barked into a device, “I need backup!”…………………READ FULL STORY http://www.nydailynews.com/news/ny_crime/2008/07/10/2008-07-10_madam_with_heart_helps_cops_catch_phony_.html

Online escort agencies like the Emperors Club are alive and thriving in South Florida, where they operate freely..

In light of the bombshell federal wiretap case that ensnared New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer — and referenced Miami escorts — a glimpse into South Florida’s lucrative online escort industry reveals it is thriving and operates without much enforcement.

”We don’t actively investigate escort services,” Broward Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Alesia Russell said. “We wouldn’t know unless there was a tip generated. Then we would check.”…

A check Tuesday of cityvibe.com and eros.com — sites where escorts and their companies post ads — showed 804 listings for female prostitutes in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties. One site advertising male escorts listed 80 South Florida providers on Tuesday.

And that’s only three websites — all types of escorts also place not-so-discreet ads in local magazines, newspapers and elsewhere on the Internet……

”When the FBI gets interested in an escort agency, it is because of money laundering, not prostitution,” Hof said.

On a local level, authorities say it’s easier to pick up a few hookers every night along Federal Highway than to take down a booming Internet sex company……….READ FULL STORY http://www.bunnyranch.com/news/internetescortsites/Internet%20escort%20sites%20are%20rarely%20policed%20-%2003-12-2008%20-%20MiamiHerald_com.htm

Vitter is the first elected official to be identified as a client of the alleged prostitution ring. Earlier this year, a high-level diplomat resigned after his name was linked to the scandal in an ABC News report based on phone records that covered 2003 to 2006.

The federal judge hearing Jeanne Palfrey’s criminal case had barred the accused madam from releasing any additional records.

Web Site Helps Officials Track Prostitution:

A Web site that evaluates the sex trade across the U.S. may help law enforcement crack down on prostitution.

Daniel Weiss, senior analyst for media and sexuality at Focus on the Family Action, said he was shocked by some of the content.

“What’s surprising is how clinical it is,” he said. “It will tell the user exactly what this woman is willing to do.”

“Law enforcement can look at this and see there’s clear solicitation of prostitution going on,” Weiss said. “And that’s a crime.

“Every police department in the country ought to log on to see who’s operating in their area.”

David Elms, who owns the site, is in jail on an unrelated charge, meaning there’s a chance it may go offline….READ FULL STORY http://www.citizenlink.org/CLNews/A000007669.cfm ………………………………HERE IS A REALTED POST FROM USASEXGUIDE.INFO.THEY CLAIM DAVE ELMS; OWNER OF THEEROTICREVIEW.COM ROUTINELY ALLOWS COPS TO REGISTER AS CUSTOMERS AND USE HIS SITE FOR PROSTITUTION STINGS.THE INFO WAS TAKEN FROM A NOW REMOVED ARTICLE FROM MSNBC’S WEBSITE..

Evans said the enforcement took place on Thursday & Friday night after several weeks of investigation. Officers identified the women as escorts on Craig’s List on the Internet. Male undercover officers contacted them via cell phone and arranged meetings. At those meetings, and sometimes during the preliminary cell phone conversations, the UC officers successfully negotiated sexual services for money. Most would only talk “business” face-to-face, Evans said. One woman, however, actually advertised sex for money on her web page. One customer that was seeking the services of one of the escorts on Thursday night turned out to be an off-duty Wayne County Sheriff’s Deputy assigned to the jail. He was cited for solicitation. In reality, he had been making the arrangements with an undercover female deputy that answered the escort’s phone after deputies arrested the escort. The off-duty officer was issued an appearance ticket for the misdemeanor ordinance violation and deputies impounded his vehicle. The off-duty officer has had his police powers temporarily removed and is now subject to departmental discipline. “Clearly, people from all walks of life engage in this type of activity,” Evans said. “It is always disappointing when you catch one of our own, but he certainly will be treated no differently than anyone else we cite for the same offense.”………READ FULL STORY http://metrodetroittoday.com/Metro_Detroit_News/Metro_Detroit_Crime_and_Police_News/Deputy_One_Of_18_Arrested_In_Prostitution_Sting/

FLORIDA’s self-defense law covers gunning down an angry, armed pimp.

Orange County sheriff’s investigators reached that conclusion Wednesday, a day after an Orlando man killed the manager of a female escort he hired online through the Craigslist networking site.

‘From our perspective, he was clearly defending his life, and we’re not going to be making an arrest,’ sheriff’s homicide Sgt. Allen Lee said. ‘Any time we get a death like this, we do send it to the State Attorney’s Office for review.’

The deadly encounter began Tuesday afternoon on the shores of Lake Irma in east Orange County.

Two roommates, Shawn McGarity and Troy Manning, hired two women from separate Internet ads on Craigslist’s pages for erotic personal services in Orlando, according to investigators.

Unfortunately for the men, according to the Sheriff’s Office, the prostitution trade is in upheaval, split between women and men simply selling their bodies and predators who use sex to lure customers into violent rip-offs.

The first woman to arrive at the lakeside house on TCU Boulevard later told detectives that robberies of johns are making it harder for her to make a living. As the afternoon progressed, the woman who previously worked as a prostitute in San Francisco and New Orleans warned her clients that the other woman they hired might be getting ready to rob them, deputies said.

‘That’s unusual what she did. We’re trying to reach out to her,’ said Metropolitan Bureau of Investigation Cmdr. Paul Zambouros, head of the vice and organized-crime squads. ‘Granted, what she’s doing is not right, but she says she can’t get any jobs because the johns are afraid of getting ripped off.’

As of Wednesday afternoon, Craigslist had more than 100 new posts and photos from Orlando women and men offering sex for prices starting at about $150 for the first half-hour. At the same time, information about the dangers of getting robbed by Orlando’s pimps and prostitutes can be found at various Internet escort Web sites.

‘We didn’t realize it was such a problem. It was eye-opening and concerning, what we learned last night,’ Lee said of questioning the woman about the number of unreported robberies. ‘What’s a john going to do? Call home and say, ‘Honey, I just got robbed by a whore?’

The gunfire erupted shortly after 7 p.m.

Shawn Goubitz-Doss, identified by deputies as the pimp of the woman who was acting suspiciously, returned to the house and pistol-whipped McGarity, 31, almost as soon as he stepped through the door. He fired at least one shot indoors as three accomplices ran toward the house from the street, according to interviews.

Previously alerted by the other woman, McGarity had armed himself with a 9 mm Ruger pistol and shot Goubitz-Doss several times. Goubitz-Doss died later at Winter Park Hospital, according to sheriff’s reports.

‘As far as who shot first, we still don’t know,’ Lee said.

Jail and police records show Goubitz-Doss, 28, had been arrested before on charges of beating a pregnant woman, armed robbery, burglary, violation of probation and stealing a firearm.

The state’s self-defense law passed in October 2005 gives everyone the right to use deadly force to protect their homes and lives without having to retreat if they feel threatened.

Investigators are searching for Goubitz-Doss’ three accomplices, who fled before deputies reached the home. The names of the two women were not released as they are part of the continuing investigation, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

McGarity and Manning, 35, likely will not be charged with soliciting a prostitute.

‘We’re not going to look into that,’ Lee said. ‘We’re just doing the death investigation, but we referred that to MBI.’

The county’s vice cops are interested most in having Craigslist pull the sexually explicit photographs and offers of prostitution from its Orlando classified advertising. In a Sept. 28 letter, Zambouros advised Craigslist CEO Jim Buckmaster that MBI has arrested more than 100 prostitutes advertising their services on Craigslist.

Craigslist did not respond to a request from the Orlando Sentinel for comment by late Wednesday evening.

‘Everybody thinks prostitution is a victimless crime, but last night shows what can happen when you invite someone into your house or hotel room,’ he said. ‘Craigslist hasn’t gotten back to me.’………………………..READ FULL STORY http://www.orlandosentinel.com/orl-hookers1807oct18,0,2736084.story

A 13 year old from Texas who stole his Dad’s credit card and ordered two hookers from an escort agency, has today been convicted of fraud and given a three year community order.

Ralph Hardy, a 13 year old from Newark, Texas confessed to ordering an extra credit card from his father’s existing credit card company, and took his friends on a $30,000 spending spree, culminating in playing “Halo” on an Xbox with a couple of hookers in a Texas motel.

The credit card company involved said it was regular practice to send extra credit cards out as long as all security questions are answered.

The escort girls who were released without charge, told the arresting officers something was up when the kids said they would rather play Xbox than get down to business.

Police said they were alerted to the motel by a concerned delivery clerk, whom after delivering supplies of Dr Pepper, Fritos and Oreos had been asked by the kids where they could score some chicks and were willing to pay. They explained they had just made a big score at a “World of Warcraft” tournament and wanted to get some relaxation. On noting the boys age the delivery clerk informed the authorities.

When police arrived at the motel they found $3,000 in cash, numerous electronic gadgets, an Xbox video console with numerous games, and the two local escort girls………….READ FULL STORY http://www.money.co.uk/article/1000390-13-year-old-steals-dads-credit-card-to-buy-hookers.htm

Jason decided Natalia would become his great creation, the Ultimate GFE. It mattered little that Natalia, for all her French-Scottish sultriness, might strike some as a tad on the skinny side. Brown-eyed, dark-haired, olive-skinned, not to mention lactose-intolerant, she didn’t fit the usual description of a big ticket in an industry filled with PSE (Porn-Star Experience) babes with store-bought bazangas out to here. Jason took this as a challenge. If he was into Natalia, he’d make sure everyone else was, too. It was a simple matter of harnessing the available technology.

The main vehicle was the aforementioned TheEroticReview.com, “the Consumer Reports of the escort industry,” according to the site’s founder and owner, the L.A.-based Dave Elms, a.k.a. Dave@TER. “The most important thing was to break Natalia out big,” Jason says. “To get the ball rolling with a number of fabulous reviews, I sent her to some friends, to sort of grease the wheel. I knew those 10/10s would keep coming, because no man wants to admit he got less. They’re brainwashed that way.”

If any hobbyist had the temerity to hand out a paltry 8/8, or even a 9/10, he would be contacted. “Don’t break my girl’s streak, this is history in the making,” Jason cajoled, offering to throw in a couple hours of free time to get the customer to do a little recalculating. If that didn’t work, good reviews could be ensured by the $5,000 everyone working at NY Confidential (except Jason) swears was FedExed to Dave@TER on the 15th of every month. Dave, who says he “would not argue with that” when asked if he is the single most important person in the escort business, vehemently denies any payoffs, from NY Confidential or anyone else………READ FULL STORY http://nymag.com/nymetro/nightlife/sex/features/12193/index4.html WATCH VIDEO:
