Massage client scam: Massage assistant robbed in Arizona

Once again, a client received a kick ass massage for over 90 minutes and got away without paying. Last time, it was in LA when a client came to one of our massage assistants and got a 2 hour massage and just as the 2 hours were coming to an end, he pretended to have a spasm. My assistant asked him what was wrong and he said she had hurt his arm. He freaked out, yelled at her (she wasn't massaging him wrong, he just didn't want to PAY for the massage) and he started to leave. She asked for payment and he said "you are lucky I don't sue you! I am not paying!" and ran out the door without paying. PRICK..

 But tonight, a bigger scammer stuck one of my massage assistants in Phoenix, Arizona. Why am I telling you this? So you can prevent it happening to you or anyone you know who is in the massage business. Basically this asshole called me, using a fake name, requesting a massage in Arizona. I passed his number onto my assistant and he came to her for a massage. She asked for pre-payment, but he whined that the money was in his car; that he would pay later. Here are her words:

 "Brent made an appointment for today at 1pm at my studio.  He parked  his car in
my car port.   Seemed very nice.  We did a Thai massage  session at his request
and from the problems he was having in his hips  and legs the best modal. 
Before anything I had him sign your waiver  and fill out the intake form.  I
asked him to pay upfront.  He said he  had his wallet in the car and said well
can I just grab it after?  His  car was parked in my car port which is literally
in front of my front  door.  During the massage things were great he asked my
lots of  questions about yoga and reflexology stretching.  Once we were done we 
talked a lot and he even scheduled another appointment with me for May  3rd.  So
he went out to his car to get the money started his engine  and drove off, I
actually ran out the door like what the fuck!!!  It  was an hour and half
massage. DOUCHE BAG DOUCHE BAG DOUCHE BAG!   I  was so upset earlier…I'm still

I have since then left him 4 voice mails and sent him a couple text  messages. 
Telling him in a very nice way to please call me and let me  know what happened?
  I've never had anything like this happen to me in  the 3 years I've been
massaging.  I mean I've never even heard any  teacher or peer of mine ever have
this occur.  The last message I left  was me telling him Id give him 24 hours to
contact me and pay  before  I filed a police report.  I talked to my friend who's
a cop and they  said its a misdemeanor and no reason  I can't file"


Ok, do NOT fuck with us!!
I found this idiot's REAL name and
REAL address so our girl can go to the police and
get her money for her 2 hour massage and hopefully
teach this wanker a lesson not to steal from Massage

His REAL name is James

We are going to the police and will make sure he pays for his crime and we will NOT stop until he gets what he deserves. Massage is hard work and to pretend to be a paying client and even make another appointment to make it all more believable is pathetic. You piece of shit.

Last week! I believe I was faced with the same massage stealing douche bag. He use the name Jesse Wilson he scheduled a massage with me last friday 08/01/2008. After the session he went to the car and he came back in and told me that he left his wallet in the car. He called someone and said that he left his wallet on the counter and that he was on his way to get it. He told me he would be back in an hour and he even rescheduled with me for the following week. Needless to say a few hours later he would not answer my calls and he finally returned a text message when I told him that I had his license plate number. He said he would bring it would bring but he never did! He gave a fake address 685 W Shawnee. I described his car to my boyfriend and he told me the same car was parked in the garage next door were he approached a man that looked like the man I described but he lied he denied it all and was trying to send him on a wild goose chase for different men in the neighbor hood. That is how I found this blog by google the 681 address because my boyfriend said he had a feeling it was him because he seemed so nervous plus he fit my description white male 6'3" light eyes, crater face, he had the same leg and glute problem. He had a green chrysler sebring! I just have a question. Did you guys take any further action with this jerk?
