Answers To Your Most Pressing Questions About US
***PLEASE NOTE – WE ARE CURRENTLY AT CAPACITY AND ARE NOT TAKING ON ANY CLIENTS AT THIS TIME. YOU MAY EMAIL US TO BE ADDED TO OUR WAITING LIST.***
Q. How do you screen my potential clients?
A. We utilize a number of data bases that allow us to find out extensive details about a client, which includes searching blacklists, sex offender registries and criminal records. Through our extensive and detailed search, you will be able to verify that your client has been forthright in the information they have given you, as well as, verify other details that may be useful in determining whether they are someone you want to see.
Q. How do you decide if a client is safe or not?
A. Our safety rating system takes a conservative approach to whether a client is safe or not. When you receive your official screening feedback form you will notice a PASS/FAIL grading system. Here is what you can expect from the various ratings, and some examples of why the client received that rating with all information provided.
PASS – The client was highly identifiable and forthright in the information they provided. They have extensive employment information and/or social media and no criminal records or black list entries detected.
FAIL– Client did not provide accurate information or used a false identity and/or information. Client was mentioned on the blacklist data bases or had minor criminal offences, (not traffic violations).
FAIL – HIGH RISK – Client has been black listed for serious offences and/or has criminal records for violent offences. This client is dangerous or possibly LE.
PENDING– Client has not provided enough information and you will need to request additional information.
PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL SCREENINGS ARE A RECOMMENDATION AND IT IS THE PROVIDER’S DISCRETION WHETHER OR NOT THEY MEET WITH A CLIENT. IF A CLIENT WHO PASSES OUR SCREENING TURNS BAD, PLEASE ENSURE THAT YOU DO REPORT THE INCIDENT TO US SO WE CAN DOCUMENT IT IN OUR DATA BASES. OUR SCREENINGS HAVE A 28% PASS RATE AND WE TAKE A CONSERVATIVE APPROACH TO SCREENING, BUT GOOD CLIENTS CAN ALWAYS TURN BAD.
Q. What information do you need to screen?
A. For the most detailed and comprehensive screening, it is always advisable to have your contact form of your website directly sent to us stating the potential client’s name, date of birth, place of employment, and any other forms of identification. The more honest information he gives, the quicker and easier the screening response time is.
Q. How long does the screening process take?
A. On average, it will take anywhere from 30 minutes to 90 minutes to screen a client. If you send your request outside of our hours of operation, you will have to wait until the following business day for a response. But don’t worry, we are generally pretty on the ball about responding!
Q. Do you screen internationally?
A. At the time being, we are only able to effectively screen U.S clientele and have limited information in Canada. If a client contacts you from outside of North America, and is working within the US, we may request additional information to verify their information.

A. Absolutely! In fact, we highly recommend our services to touring providers because it does ensure their safety working in a new environment where the laws and/or culture is quite different and the provider is uncertain about the market.
Q. Do you offer assistant services?
A. No, this is not a service we provide, but we may be able to put you in touch with someone should you request it.
Q. Is Laura Cohen a provider?

Q. I’m a gentleman client who would like to be screened by Laura to use as a reference instead of giving my information to providers. Is this possible?
A. No, unfortunately we do not offer that service. We only screen on behalf of companions. The companion will have to collect your screening information and provide it to us. We will process the screening and provide her with confidential report of our findings.
Q. CAN YOU SEND ME A LIST OF YOUR DATABASES?
Unfortunately, no, we are not able to provide this. To prevent possible misuse the processes and tools that we use, we are not able to disclose this information.
Q. Can you send me the results of screenings you performed for other companions?
Possibly, however all communication including information used to obtain screening results or the results themselves are strictly confidential. Release of any information requires expressed written authorization of the companion that hired us to process the screening. In the event you wish to obtain information of this sort, we will send a request to the companion that hired us for release of information. The companion will asked if they authorize information from the screening to be released, what aspects of the information they allow released and for the specific purpose. Depending on the companion’s authorization and if deemed in the best interest of all parties, we will disclose the data which is permitted by the release of information.
Q. Are you still offering to run Twitter polls on behalf of your followers?
No. The number of poll requests and resulting confusion of whether various polls were written by us or by a third party became too large for us, as a small business, to manage. We have discontinued this service.
