Handing over money

People may abuse sex workers (financially).

For example, because you:
  • Don’t know the rules or legislation well.
  • Do not dare to talk about your situation with social services or other organisations.
Sometimes, we hear that:
  • So-called accountants deceive sex workers with lies that they are their only expert financial help. They then charge too much for their services.
  • Someone ‘arranges’ your living arrangements but charges a lot of money for it.
  • Sex workers are forced, blackmailed, or extorted.

All this is strictly forbidden! You have rights which are protected by law.

If you have found yourself in such a situation contact ACS (anonymously). You are not doing anything wrong. There is help and advice to change this situation.
