Fake Prostitution Crime
It's the prostitution that is fake, not the crime. Vice Squad frequently notes how vice criminalization breeds further crimes, because unscrupulous people suspect that illegal vice-involved victims generally will be reluctant to call upon the police. A small case in point surfaces from Wyoming. A taxi cab driver offered to procure prostitutes for one or more customers, according to the allegations. After the customer(s) paid him, the cabbie did not follow through. The case came to light when two of the 'promised' women contacted police - they had received angry phone calls from a jilted would-be customer.
