I sent an email in my interest in the company (Party People)and its rewards. I then applied for another company (Adorabelles) and they both sent me an email with how much it costs to become a companion, I asked each of them if they knew about each other and Party people told me that adorabelles were black listed and when I did some more reseacrh and found this website stating that they were a scam company. there was also a blog stating that there are genuine companies out there, So I trusted them.  I am a single mum and unemployed so the membership money has come from a family memebers savings on the promise that i can return it back pretty quick! (How wrong am I!) Well I signed up and paid via the bank to a Mr J Welch. Lloyds TSB account - sort code: 77-91-38, account number 18397968 The Ladies that I have spoke to are Linda, and Diane - they begin talking to you so nice and they tell you they have a booking for me! Whooo wooo! His name was mark a photographer that travels and is looking for someone to share dinner with. Great news! Espeically when your told its £600 for the evening. So I got a babysitter in, (More money) and got ready. Well I got nothing!!!! No phone call, No answer from Party people, now response from any email till the 2 days later on the monday. I was then accused of not answering the phone, and then again the same story on the tuesday! Well I have 3 numbers, so I gave them all out! In the hope that someone would call at least one - but NO. I have asked 5 times for a refund and nothing is being done about it. It states that in its terms and conditions the following: 5.3 Once you have started using the Services you shall not be entitled to any refund unless there is an error in the operation of our program or processes that results in the Services being unavailable for 48 hours or more in any one consecutive period . If you feel that the Services have been defective in any way you must contact our Support Team using the Contact Form on the Website, with your reasons for claiming a refund plus a copy of your user registration details and Transaction id Number or Payment invoice (without this we will be unable to help). 5.4 Where we agree to a refund, the refund will be made within 30 days of your application. If a refund is granted then this will be on a pro-rated basis for how long you have used the membership. A small administration charge will be deducted from the amount paid. Well you dont get anything!!!! I have had no log in details, absolute nothing They even say that you have been put ina brochure?! thats not true either I have asked to try and get a refund and have no response - it is all a scam! I have sent them a letter in the post with copies of all the emails sent and I will be taking this matter further.

There telephone number is: 02033710026 - comapny is called please avoid this company

conned into paying a fee »18/03/1128/03/20119
i had applied to become a true companion. they said that i would have to pay the commision fee when a date became avaliable. due to my lack of experience in this field when true companions called and said another companion had cancelled and i could take on the new client i was really glad i had found work so fast. she gave me all the details and said that i would have to use a western union money tranfer form and sent money to a lady in spain. i would then be registered on the website and could attend the date. on saturday the 19th i was ment to attent the date as i had signed up and paid the registration fee when true companions called and said the date had cancelled and since then i have heard nothing from them. i am registered on the website but there are no photos as they said there would be. so they basically conned me into paying the registration fee to them making up that there was an avaliabity for me.

Ref 1030 membership fee »12/03/201003/04/20107

I spoke with a woman called Sandra von Horzen, we spoke on several occasions as I was unsure whether they were a frauduulent company or not. Eventually I agree to pay £299 membership fee on the basis that there would be a "confirmed" booking. I was called just as I was paying in the funds to a Barclays account under the name of a George Daltrey, who incidentally I have now discovered owns escorts and has already conned other innocent people out of their money.

Once the fees were paid, I was told that the client would call, numerous calls later, no call. Sandra told me the following monday that the client had been given a wrong mobile number for me!

Asked to speak to a mamnager names Alexandra, guess what your are right she has never returned my call.

I have rung, sent emails but all to no avail. This is a registered company with Companies House, as per the address above and George Daltrey is the sole director, I believe he is a builder by profession.

Do not contact this website they are trained to con people, I will be pursiung this via Small claims court, and will not let this rest as it is shocking that he is being allowed to get away with this again.

Requested Refund »20/10/1020/10/20107

I was looking for some part time work to improve my social life and at the same time make some money. I applied on line through the website of Party People, I was called the very next day by Linda who asked me lots of questions as to why I wanted this job and what my situation was. Linda explained to me that I would be given and job and then required to become a member of the site. The very next day she called again stating that she had great interest in bookings for me. Linda emailed me with the membership price list and options, I said I was very interested. Linda next told me that she had a booking for me and that I need to pay the membership. The details of the bank account were emailed to me and I paid the money through transfer. The night of the date I was contacted stating that they could not get hold of me on the telephone and that it would be rescheduled for the next evening. I waited for confirmation the next day but I received a call from another lady stating that the job was having problems and could not take place that evening and that it would be rebooked. I was contacted then everyday from that until my money had been received. In fact I received a very rude message from Linda stating that they had not received my money and used nasty language trying to say that I was lying to them that I had sent the money.  This was very upsetting and I sent an email to confirm that I had indeed sent the money and that this was not in nature to mislead anyone.  Unfortunately I believe that I have been mislead.  That was almost a month ago and although I have left messages and sent several emails I have only received one telephone call since, stating that they are still trying to sort things out. On 19th October 2010, I emailed through the site and also to the info email address stating that it has been a almost a month since they have had my money and yet I still have not received a booking. I have not had any communication and I really do not expect to either.  I have reported this site to Gumtree and I will be taking this further.

Scamed me »26/03/201026/03/20104

I was making inquiries in to companion-ship as I am a single mum with two children struggling to make ends meet. I emailed the company and was called back the next day.
After hearing about this kind of work from a friend I knew there would be a fee to advertise me in their gallery. I was spoken to on a number of occasions by a guy with a northern accent named sean. He said that unless I had a confirmed booking there would be no need to part with my money.
I searched the internet for bad reviews and couldn't find any so after 3 days of speaking sean convinced me I had 2 bookings for this like an idiot I used my rent money to fund the 265 that was required.I payed it in to a natwest account and was told that my client would be ringing me before 11am the following day.after spending all night on the Internet I realised that this indeed was a scam
I then recieved an un known call from a lady stating that due to a brehavment ny client would not be able to make this weekend.I am so angry I don't kno what to do.I want to ring the agency but kno I'm just going to be fed more rubbish and I won't get an outcome.

I applied online to become a companion as i desperately needed money, and they contacted me to say a regular client wanted meet up with me the next day so i borrowed money of my mum to pay the registration fee which had to be sent through western union to a guy in spain not a lady like a previous complaint stated, they rang me to see if i had sent the cheque off and i had done so she said they would pass my details on to the guy i was meeting, and i never heard anything until true companions rang me to say that he had cancelled and they would ring me the next day to make some more appointments and still not heard anything as by now i usually have loads of missed calls and voice mail messages off them, and after i googled them last night i read all these comments about them being a scam which made my heart basically drop and i've not slept or eaten yet as i dont know what to do and it wasnt my money i used to pay for it, and we need the money back now as i thought i would be getting 600 last night which never happened, so any one reading these DO NOT use TRUE COMPANIONS what so ever.

Conned into paying registration fee »14apr1115/04/20113

I have just registered with this company as they assured me and my partner that we were wanted for a corporate event which would earn us both £600 each but we needed to register first. We had to pay £200 each via western union to spain in the name of Abigail Sheehan Avery.
Once we did this we were then told that the event had been cancelled and hence we didnt earn any money. We were afraid this might happen, we even spoke to the company before we did the transfer to voice our fears and they assured us with alot of very convinving stories that everything was above board any we had nothing to worry about. Now we are £400 out of pocket and we cant get hold of them any more.
Names of people spoken to in this office-Sadie, Daisy, Keely.

I was looking to become a companion and contacted Diamond Companions through their website. They told me i could earn £500 per booking and that they earnt their money through commission. i emailed them 3 photos Ria the contact there called me this to say that there had been great interest and once i had given my availability, she had a booking for me on Friday night in Canary Wharf, London for dinner with a business man. A car would pick me up and bring me home and if all went well a dinner with him again on the sunday evening. All I had to do was pay for my advertising, a fee of £350 plus a transfer fee which needed to be done via Weston Union as their head office was in Spain. I registered with Weston Union and the money was paid.

Bogus join up fee with company »9.6.201011/06/20102
Okay, So, I was looking for work about 3 weeks ago. And she (CJ) emailed me and than rang me asking me how soon would I like to start work. I said as soon as because I was not happy where I was working now. After more emails and phone calls she was persistent in convincing me she had work for me for being a female companion for 'guy named Jason, 36, lives in Cardiff, visiting London and to meet in Camden'.
Initially she said I can pay the join up fee after I've been on the date with Jason, but then she changed her mind and got nasty and said I had to pay all the money on the wednesday 9.6.2010, if I wanted to work on Thursday for Jason. So, I did and by thursday morning, when I was preparing for my first work date, she callously 'phones up to tell me that it has been cancelled after all the effort I went into getting the money together. Because obviously I didn't have that much money anyway and I borrowed some.
I now feel cheated and thinking how do these people sleep at night.
They tell me Friday and saturday night are there busiest nights, so how come they don't have 'companions' already booked in and when i rang to speak to the booking department, the rude receptionist told me they didn't have a number.
