Man Complains Prostitute Lied About Appearance, Calls Police To Report She ‘Made Herself Out To Be Better Than She Was’ [AUDIO]
A UK man complained a prostitute lied to him about her appearance, and even called police to report that the woman "made herself out to be better than she was." In a bizarre phone call to the West Midlands Police Department in England, the man even went so far as to accuse the prostitute of breaching the Sale of Goods Act, a 1979 statute regulating UK commerce (including a clause stating that during a transaction, the "goods supplied under the contract are of satisfactory quality").

According to a spokesperson for the police department, on Tuesday, a man called the police emergency line to complain that he was duped when a prostitute, whom he had arranged a rendezvous with outside of a hotel, showed up and looked different than he expected her to.
During the phone call, the man complains the prostitute "misrepresented" herself before their tryst at the hotel. He said he asked her to give him an "honest" description of what she looked like, and that she supposedly lied.
The police station likely had a royal laugh over the man's complaint, and even took to Twitter to rail about the strange phone call.
"Unbelievable ... man just reported a 'lady of the night' for breaching Sale of Goods Act with her looks. Sergeant reshaping the man's attitude," the Solihull Police Department tweeted on Tuesday.

West Midland Police, in West Midlands, UK, posted part of the audio from the conversation between the unidentified man and the emergency line operator. In the exchange, the man complains the prostitute he found in the personal ads tricked him.
The conversation starts with the man saying: "I need police assistance."
When the dispatcher asked what the problem was, he responds that a woman he is with has "got her knickers in a twist."
After hesitating (perhaps he was second guessing his decision to report his meeting with the prostitute to the police?), he continues: "Basically, this woman, she's advertised in the newspaper for like, you know like, private services like massage and stuff, ya?"
The dispatcher, ostensibly sensing where the conversation is headed, answers "ya."
"When I've come here, she's mis-described herself and she's like, misrepresented herself. I want a log of this before she makes wild accusations!"
He then offers to give the dispatcher a "registration number," apparently from the advertisement he located her in. "That's the only trace I've got of her," he said.
Listen to the call to UK police in which the man complains a prostitute lied about her appearance:
"It was unbelievable; he genuinely believed he had done nothing wrong and that the woman should have been investigated by police for misrepresentation," Sergeant Jerome Moran of the Solihull police station told Express and Star. "I told him that she'd not committed any offences and that it was his actions, in soliciting for sex, that were in fact illegal."
The sergeant said that a letter was sent to the man who called police to complain about a prostitute, warning him that his actions were illegal.
While prostitution itself is not illegal in the UK, various laws govern certain behaviors associated with the act. According to Express And Star, running a brothel, loitering or soliciting sex on the street are illegal under the 1956 Sexual Offence Act. A 2001 law banned personal advertisement in phone booths, and laws which deal with public decency and nuisance can be used to prosecute sex trade cases.
