Call your local police or the FBI and file a criminal complaint immediately.
“Please I beg of you! I will never do it again, I promise!”
We get this one a lot! We know there are all sorts of unanticipated consequences that come as a result of being listed on DirtyEx.com. While we are sensitive to your situation and understand the havoc you are going through, it still does not permit us to censor (stifle) the escorts who may have made legitimate warning posts about you. Simply put we will not break the rules and laws governing 3rd party posting websites to cover for your actions when you were breaking the law while engaging in prostitution or attempting to engage in prostitution.
“Please Remove My Last Name!”
Many write in and do not deny the complaint posted is true and ask us to at least remove the last name from the report because when Googled, your full name yields a search result of a DirtyEx.com complaint that is being, or can potentially be, catastrophic to your personal, work, and/or family reputation. We could suggest that this is something you should have thought of before you decided to see escorts or even mistreat an escort, but other than the fact that we are simply a 3rd party posting website and are not permitted to edit the reports submitted by the escorts who comprise our users and members we cannot remove your last name. Without your last name on the report the warning post about you would be rendered useless. Your online names, handles, and aliases, your anonymous free email, your prepaid burner cell phone are all expendable and that’s why you use them, so you can ditch them easily and move on with new ones when it’s convenient for you. But your last name…. Yep, that’s a problem, and one you cannot ditch so easily, which is why it was listed and now cannot be unlisted. Your complaint is automatically added to 5 of the biggest Internet search engines. Make no mistake about it – your complaint will be noticed! An automatic counter shows you exactly how many times your complaint page has been viewed An e-mail message is automatically sent to the company you have a complaint against every time your page is viewed. A “support my comment” link is sent to you. If you send the “support my comment” link to just 10 people, and they each forward it to 5 people who each forward it to 2 people who each forward it to 1 person, your comment will have been seen by 260 people. Trying to do that by word of mouth!
Someone with the same name as mine is listed in the registry and hurting my reputation.
In the event that a name posted in our registry happens to be the same as yours, there is not much we can do about it, and it is an unfortunate coincidence. But, imagine if a serial killer named John Smith existed. Do you think the media, the news papers, and the police are going to withhold the name of John Smith from the public because they are worried about all the other John Smiths around the country who might be upset because they could be mistakenly associated with the serial killer John Smith? In the interest of Public Safety the common good prevails, and the details will sort eventually themselves out. Postings in DirtyEx.com are usually accompanied with phone numbers and email addresses and occasionally other identifying physical description information about the real offender to separate the offender from others who innocently happen to share the same name. This information should aid you in cases of mistaken identity.
This site can be used for Extortion and Blackmail.
It has been suggested by a few who’ve written to us that we should take some type of action to prevent our database from being used as blackmail or for extortion. While we are not sure how we could ever accomplish that, please note that everywhere in society there are honest and legitimate products and services that are occasionally used inappropriately by a deviant few, and the law places responsibility on the deviant individual’s behavior who acts illegally, and not the company that produces the legitimate product or service. What is being suggested is akin to asking a weapons manufacturer to do something that’ll prevent their guns from being used in the enactment of a crime, or like asking automobile manufactures to prevent an angry wife someday from running over her husband if she ever caught him cheating on her. Simply, it can’t be done. Our service is what it is, and if an individual chooses to exploit our product for an illegal purpose, then that individual, when caught, will be held responsible for their actions. The laws of our land deal with people as individuals thus making each person personally responsible for their decisions and actions, and we shall follow that precedent.
I saw this same review on another website, is this a repost?
If an escort is a member of another escort/hobbyist review board and she sees a warning post written on that site about a bad client encounter and she thinks that warning would be of value on the DirtyEx.com website and she re-posts here in our database, that is a 3rd party re-post, and we are not responsible for that content that was re-posted by that user.
Will you ever consider removing posts?
Yes, A Court of competent jurisdiction – sue the original poster, win and send us the court order..
“If I file a lawsuit against DirtyEx, will that get my report removed?”
No it will not and it will only get you sued back in return. DirtyEx is a 3rd party posting platform, meaning we are immune from legal liability for content posted by our users (the escorts/cheaters/liars) and legal precedent says you cannot even bring a suit against us for the content posted by our users, your lawyer will explain this to you as well. Please don’t attempt to threaten or bully us. According to US Federal Law our website is simply not responsible for posts made by its users or members, therefore, DirtyEx will not remove complaints even if you sue us or attempt to. The process is to take legal action against the author of the post.
What if the original poster/escort asks to remove her post?
The post and report will remain on the site. DirtyEx does not want to encourage escorts to post haphazardly.
“I want the post about me removed immediately?”
Despite the vast amount of information we provide as to why we cannot remove and as adamant as you may be about wanting a post about you removed, the person who made the post is just as adamant about wanting the post to remain for the safety and security of others. If you want the post removed, because we are a 3rd party posting website and are not permitted to get involved or take sides, we suggest you contact an attorney and explore your legal options. You may feel you have your legal rights, but so does the person who wrote the post, and so does the DirtyEx website. We believe it is best that you respect the law and allow everyone their right to due process.
DirtyEx should personally verify every report before it is published.
If we had the time and resources we would but as stated above in the previous answer US Federal Law does not require 3rd party sites to do that because they recognized what an impossible task that would be. Escorting is a quasi legal activity that is perceived to be a front for illegal prostitution. To verify posts, we would have to investigate your private intimate communications and affairs that might suggest or reference actual illegal activities (which include prostitution) and that is not something we are permitted to do nor do we wish to have access to.
Can I get the Person to post a retraction or contact DirtyEx about a removal on my behalf?
No. All reports in our database are submitted as a matter of record, and even if you make things right after the fact, it doesn’t change what occurred that caused or initiated the escort into submitting the report. Even if you get the escort to request that we retract the report, we do not know by what means you got them to make that retraction, did you bribe her and pay her off? Are you threatening her life in some way and pressuring her into making the retraction through extortion, blackmail, or physical harm? If your original offense was to harass, rob, abuse or beat up an escort because she wouldn’t do everything you asked of her, we believe that is very important information that all escorts should be aware and informed of. Even if you make amends with the escort you mistreated it doesn’t change the original offense committed and once the report is removed you would have more liberty and opportunity to become a repeat offender. As a safety platform to escorts we cannot allow that to happen nor deny to others information that can spare them from harm. Safety is Paramount.
Why do you allow anonymous postings?
According to Federal law makers there exists the legal right for folks to post complaints anonymously online without the fear, pressure, or retaliation that comes with open exposure. Despite many who have tried to argue this point, anonymous posts do not invalidate the legitimacy of the complaint, nor does it invalidate the rights of the person to make such posts. We relate this to yelp or city search review where user ‘Manhattan Joe’ makes a complaint about the attitude of a waitress at Jakes Deli or ‘Country Gal’ who posts on Vitals.com about Dr. Joe who had terrible bedside manner. The Supreme Court of the United States on occasion since 1997 has upheld the Free Speech rights of “anonymous complaints” in regard to internet gripe sites. These laws serve to protect the individual’s rights to make such postings, and the websites that host such postings. In legal regards to anonymity, in the first appellate decision to address the issue, a New Jersey appeals court established stringent procedural and evidentiary standards that must be met before the identity of an anonymous online poster can be disclosed through litigation. The court recognized the constitutional right to communicate anonymously and refused to order the identification of a “John Doe” speaker who had posted comments on a Yahoo! (Yahoo.com) message board. United States Federal Law and many States have procedures and standards in how they deal with this issue. Depending on where you are, you may wish to discuss these matters with your local attorney.
What about my Free Speech Rights? I have the right to face my accuser!
That is true that you do, but only in a courtroom in a controlled setting where you can confront the accuser/poster in a legal and civilized environment. We will release the name or identity to you through the court system and that is THE only way.
“I demand the name of the person who posted the report about me. How can I get that?”
Our Terms of Service in accordance with Federal Law require us to protect the First Amendment rights of our users by safeguarding their privacy to the fullest extent of the law. This means that DirtyEx cannot and will not release the identities or the contact information of any user of the website without a lawful court order, which you will have to obtain through the court system.
Why do all the reports show the poster as ‘Anonymous’?
This is for the privacy and safety of the posters, to protect them from harassment, retaliation and retribution. By law we are required to protect their Free Speech Rights, and if you feel they crossed the line with what they said, then you can legally go after them and try to prove your case in court. If you wish to obtain the name of any poster you will have to go to court, make your appeal and if the court orders the release of the posters identity, we will be more than happy to comply with the court order and release this information.
I never had communications with that escort or that agency!
We don’t know the truth, but pretty much everyone ever caught in some *** scandal has denied and that is understandable. If you have never called an escort then you should have no problem confronting the poster and pursuing a legal case against them for internet defamation. While taking legal action may seem like a huge nuisance to you it is all we can offer because we are a 3rd party posting website, it means that the content in our database is posted by our users, not us, and Federal Law has determined that the users, not the website, are legally responsible for the content they post and publish. Any attempt to circumvent this process will look suspicious in that you are trying to avoid facing your accuser, and trying to bypass them by making us remove the post.
I Forgot My Username, Email & Password. How Do I Recover Them?
You cannot. You will need to establish a new username and password. If you have your email, you can contact us through our contact form for more assistance.
How do you assure the postings are legitimate or accurate?
We can’t and we don’t. No website of this nature can. US Federal Lawmakers know that 3rd party posting websites like ours have no way of vetting the users, and verifying the experiences or accusations that poster’s publish on their sites. US Federal Law, CDA (Communications Decency Act) as it is written, simply says you must hold the poster’s accountable for the content they publish. If you wish to dispute a post, the law says you need to confront the person who made the post. We have nothing to do with it, and we stay out of your disputes and if you believe the post is inaccurate to confront the person you believe posted it.
“How did my name and information get in your database?”
If your name appears in our database, it is with the understanding that you had some communication with an escort or agency, or an appointment with an escort that in some way went wrong. Escorts and Agencies can post your info for all sorts of danger and safety reasons including rude and disrespectful clients, callers trying to rip off escorts with various scams, customers being verbally or physically abusive, or callers being time-wasters or practical jokers by booking appointments and then not showing up.
So you guys take the word of some prostitute over mine?
Nice condescending attitude you guys show with this one. As with the previous question and the Secret Service incident, apparently the word of the escort in South America was good enough and her complaint were legitimate, so trying to free yourself by attacking the character or credibility of an escort is not a sound tactic. In our case, we don’t take anyone’s word over another. We’re just not taking sides, we’re not allowed to. We didn’t make the posts so we don’t have to defend them. We don’t know what happened, or if anything happened at all, we only defend the escort’s rights to make their posts, and only they can defend the specific content in their posts.
So what’s DirtyEx’s responsibility in all this?
Our only responsibility is to maintain a functioning communication platform and searchable database for the people who utilize our service. That’s it, nothing more and nothing less. Your responsibility is to look out for and protect your reputation, your family, and your career. And if you do see escorts, and something goes wrong between you, it’s best to remember what you have at stake, so put your pride aside, and handle the problem or misunderstanding like a gentleman so the escort doesn’t feel the need to submit a report. Remember the US Secret Service agents and the problems they all had in Columbia, South America? All that could have been avoided if the one guy just paid the escort her fee. But no, the one agent decided not to, she made a stink, and many lives, careers, and families were destroyed, along with the reputation and integrity of the US Secret Service. So seriously guys, it does not pay to be cheap, selfish, arrogant, or stupid, the price you may wind up paying will be too heavy, and innocent people will be hurt too.
Do you realize the problems your site is causing for me? Do you even care about the problems you’re causing me, my family, and my career?
Actually if you really cared about your wife, family, and career you wouldn’t be seeing escorts in the first place. So grow up and realize where your real responsibilities lie. As a man, it is your job to protect your name, your reputation, your family, and your career. That’s what real men do, they act like mature men of character and integrity, they put their wives, their families, and their careers first, and they refrain from engaging in activities like prostitution that could harm their reputations, hurt their relationships, destroy their families, and ruin their careers. So please, don’t blame this website if you’re the one who stupidly put your life, family, and career at risk. Remember… “Poor planning on your part, does not constitute an emergency on our part.”
Does Law enforcement contact you about johns posted?
Yes everyone does, including wives.
How Do I get A post of me removed?
The quick reply is NO COMPLAINT WILL BE REMOVED, unless it goes opposed to our TOS or We only remove posts if ordered to do so by A Court of competent jurisdiction.
Where are you located? I want to sue DirtyEx?
We take extreme measures to remain anonymous. Our representatives use a chain of Virtual Private Networks strung through Virtual Machines, TOR and TOR-to-Web Proxies, to connect to the internet. We live in Iceland and our website is hosted outside the USA so search warrants and American courts cannot rule us. Our web servers are anonymous and paid for with bitcoin so there is no way to track things back to us.

In the event my report was false, will you remove my report?
No. DirtyEx lets users report other liars and cheaters, evildoers, cheating spouse, significant other, *** workers, prostitutes and escorts also use the site to report bad clients. Due to the Communications Decency Act or “CDA”, 47 U.S.C. § 230, we cannot and will not be held liable for the validity and accuracy of the submissions of our users.
How long do records remain published on DirtyEx?
We do not remove records when a time limit has expired. Records appearing on the site will remain published forever.

DirtyEx was developed to be highly visible in search engines to maximize the accessibility of the information we provide. The records for nearly all persons in our database can be accessed by searching the offender’s name in Google, Yahoo and/or Bing.
Thinking about suing DirtyEx? Read this first!
The Law You Need To Know – The Communications Decency Act
Because we will not remove reports, DirtyEx has been sued on many occasions based on the content which our users have created and posted. If you are considering suing DirtyEx because of a profile which you claim is defamatory, you should be aware that to date, DirtyEx has never lost such a case. This is because of a federal law called the Communications Decency Act or “CDA”, 47 U.S.C. § 230. Because this important law is not well known, we want to take a moment to explain the law, and to also explain that the filing of frivolous lawsuits can have serious consequences for those who file them, both parties and their attorneys.
The CDA is part of our federal laws. An excellent Wikipedia article discussing the history of the law can be found here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Section_230_of_the_Communications_Decency_Act
In short, the CDA provides that when a user writes and posts material on an “interactive website” such as DirtyEx, the site itself cannot, be held legally responsible for the posted material. Specifically, 47 U.S.C. § 230(c)(1) states, “No provider or user of an interactive computer service shall be treated as the publisher or speaker of any information provided by another information content provider.” Because the submitted profiles on DirtyEx are authored by users of the site, we cannot be legally regarded as the “publisher or speaker” of the reports contained here, and hence we are not liable for reports even if they contain false or inaccurate information (NOTE: we occasionally create editorial comments and other material, but when we do, this is clearly marked as such). The same law applies to sites like FaceBook, MySpace, and CraigsList – users who post information on these sites are responsible for what they write, but the operators of the sites are not.
The reasons for this law are simple. Websites cannot possibly monitor the accuracy of the huge volume of information which their users may choose to post. If an angry plaintiff were permitted to hold a website liable for information that the site did not create, this would stifle free speech as fewer and fewer sites would be willing to permit users to post anything at all. See generally Batzel v. Smith, 333 F.3d 1018, 1027-28 (9th Cir. 2003) (recognizing, “Making interactive computer services and their users liable for the speech of third parties would severely restrict the information available on the Internet. Section 230 [of the CDA] therefore sought to prevent lawsuits from shutting down websites and other services on the Internet.”)
So, why should you care about the CDA? Well, it’s simple – if someone posts false information about you on the DirtyEx, the CDA prohibits you from holding us liable for the statements which others have written. You can always sue the author if you want, but you can’t sue DirtyEx just because we provide a forum for speech.
Can I pay DirtyEx to take down a post about me?
No. You may not pay us to take down a post about you. We would not take down a post for any amount of money. You can offer us $1,000, $10,000 or $100,000. We do not remove posts simply upon demand, request, nor as a result of threats, cajoling, or assertions of liability. We only remove posts if ordered to do so by A Court of competent jurisdiction.
I have heard that DirtyEx is a scam website? through the news media. is this true?
This is not true. We are a site that is true to what we claim. The reason why people are reporting the site to the news is because their reputations are at stake and they will lie or say anything to try and have it removed. We have no way of knowing if any of this is true or not.
