I've always been nervous to hire because I've been burned by fake profiles before. Any tips on how to verify they are for real? Are there many fake profiles on A4A that anyone has come across? NYC specifically, here. Thanks!

Ask for a video call to make sure they are real and look like their pics before you agree to meet.

You can also insist on meeting in a public place (like a Starbucks) and walk away if you get a bad vibe.

Never agree to send money in advance - makea you look like an easy target. Never show weakness to a predator. 🤓

Tons of fake regular profiles on A4A.  I’ve never hired from the “Pro” section, but in my area, with very few exceptions, the guys look sketchy and don’t interest me.  Maybe it’s different in NYC.  I would suggest you search by distance from you, if you’re not already, so you know they’re actually local.  After that you need to assess each one for credibility and your comfort level.  Go with your gut and don’t let the little head think for the big one.  
 

I agree with @FrankR.  Meet in a public place especially if anything seems “off,” and never send $$ ahead of time.  That’s a huge  🚩.

Considering this is “ask a provider”, I figure I could chime in. Of course I disagree with the sending money ahead of time equating to being a predator or red flag. Rather critical verbiage. 
 

I actually state in my ad that new clients may need to confirm (hard to say “deposits” in many ads these days). Just like clients may come across fake providers, so is the case of escorts coming by fake clients. And A4A is among the top for having flaky clients. 
 

As for verifying: I use my Jarrod Brandon name in my ad and include my JFF handle. A profile with an actual name is likely more true than something with a screenname sounding name.

I find that the fake profiles have some type of discrepancy between the city where they post and where they actually are.   If you use the desktop or mobile site (not the app) it will show the city that the person lists as their location and also their number of miles away from you.    I think there is the same concern whether you are a client looking for provider or provider looking for a client.     When someone contacts me on A4A, my first question is to ask where they are located and also to say that I am a provider looking for clients.      If he says that he is in a differnt city than he has posted I just block him.     Even if not a fake, but the person is thousands of miles away, they may be a time waster.    If the person is in my city, and the conversaion goes like typical client introductory questions, then I continue with the conversation.    If they are farther away but look legitimate, I ask if they are planning a visit to my area.     I do agree with other posters here regarding concern for sending money in advance.     I have actaully gotten a good number of greawt  clients from A4A.
