I never thought that I would fall for a con man, but it just goes to prove how easy it is to fool somebody. Working for London escorts should in fact have left me with plenty of know how to look after myself, but somehow this 19 year old guy managed to pull me in. He did look a lot older than any other 19 year old than I had ever met before, and he had all of the manners of a more seniors person. I must admit that I was rather shocked to find out that he was only 19 years old. The first time I met Nick was on a night out with the rest of my former colleagues from cheap escorts in London. Even though most of us have now left London escorts, we still keep in touch and go for nights out.
This night was not so much different from any other night out that I had enjoyed with the girls from London escorts. We started with drinks and moved on to a club in Soho that we all knew rather well. This is where I met Nick. A slight alarm bell rang in my head when I spotted Nick at the bar for the first time. He gave me this lovely smile, and when I stop and think about it now, it was rather too much of a smile. But as I was a little bit “happy” from the drinks I had enjoyed enjoyed with my friends from London escorts, I did not listen to that alarm bell. Instead I just carried on, and like the girls said, it was not long before I was chatting up Nick. Apparently my friends at London escorts thought it was a good idea and did not try to stop me. At the time I was on the rebound from another relationship, and was not really thinking straight. Looking back to that night, my London escorts savvy should have told me that something was wrong. He was just too pushy and if I would have stopped and thought about it, Nick was not the guy for me at all.
I normally don’t fall for men who are what I call self-promoters. This was something that Nick was very good at, and I wish I had spent some time reflecting on his mannerism of that night. A couple of days later, Nick and I met up again and it was became clear that he was really savvy with money. But then again, maybe that was not true at all. He seemed to be after money, and even asked me to invest in his business on our first meeting without the rest of the girls from London escorts. Without thinking about it, I had told him about my two London properties on the first night we had met. We spent some time going out over the next couple of weeks, and it was not until three weeks later, I discovered Nick was a fraud. He had gone to the bathroom when the waiter returned with his credit card. I had never seen his credit card before, but I noticed right away the name on the card was different. It turned out that my charming Nick was a 19 year old college kid from Milton Keynes who was after every penny he could get out of girls like me.
