Hey guys,

 

I just saw this ad for "Tommy" in DC.

 

http://www.rentboy.com/Listing.aspx?lid=580702&iid=506388&scid=139964359&sp=1&pos=5&locid=1433&type=escort

 

The ad has Red Flags galore: new escort with no reviews + outlandishly low rate given the guy's good looks/hot ripped body/huge endowment + checklist with all activities (nothing from the list omitted).

 

So my initial question is, Who is the handsome guy whose pix were stolen? And is there some kind of "gang" that makes up ads like this, advertises for $150, and then rips people off? Or is this just some kind of joke?

 

At the very least, consider this for your holiday amusement (and nice eye candy) . . . . .

Google Image Search reveals that each of the pictures he uses show up in multiple places on the internet, such as sites like "guys with iPhones." In itself, this doesn't mean that he isn't the guy in the pictures, but it certainly casts some suspicion. His ad also states that the pictures are "very recent," but they date back at least a year and half, so unless you consider that to be "very recent," he's caught in at least one lie.

Not a gang, just Jason Crystal.

 

The gym selfie ties back to a fitness model/body builder/personal trainer from NJ, who lists his stats as 29, 5'11" and 205...which don't match either set of stats listed in the ad.

 

And the guy in the gym selfie is not the same as the guy in the other pics....the faces are different and that's definitely not his butt. It's much bigger, plus his Facebook page places in buying gas in Illinois earlier today.

The locker room selfie leads to a lot of photos of (what I believe to be) a legitimate body builder. Many of those photos seem to vary significantly. I wouldn't necessarily think they're all the same guy, but in the context of a bodybuilder, it's more believable.

How to Solve a Problem Like Jason Crystal?

 

Jason Crystal again?

Boomer, you are probably right. I did a search for "Jason Crystal" in the Archives of this Website, and there are lots of postings like the one I just made: Great body + does everything + low 150 per hour price = JASON CRYSTAL scamming under a new name with new pictures. Below is a representative thread, identifying one of his scammer names.

Anyone have ideas on how to discourage this kind of scamming? It is hard to pin down someone like this--he seems to combine a predatory spirit with a clever and dynamic stream of false ads. Did anyone ever meet up with him? If so, did he just take the money and run, or was there a hint of violence?

I texted back and forth with him, from a private, throw-away number. I was pretty sure from the outset that his pictures were fake, and while I was inquiring about setting up an appointment, I asked him to verify that his photos were actually him. He danced around the issue, never answering the question directly. I asked him to send a quick selfie, with a particular pose, to verify it was him, and he refused. In reality, I had no intention of hiring him, in fact I wasn't actually in his city. I am convinced he is a scammer, and I was intentionally wasting his time.

 

So, I ask you this: Is it unethical to intentionally waste the time of a lying scammer like this guy? I considered looking up a hotel in his area, making up a room number, and scheduling a bogus appointment. I couldn't bring myself to be quite that evil, but I wonder if that's the way we need to get these scammers to give up.

I say asking for a verifying selfie is a good thing. I might to do the same.

 

Years ago me and a few buddies would hang out on a Friday night or Saturday and hire escorts (either from a hotel room or one of our houses). When someone would show up not matching their pics, we'd ask him to leave. One guy was so far off from his pics, one of us called him back, set up an appointment, and gave him the address of our local police station. :)
