    I met a TS escort online and arranged a meeting at a nearby hotel. Things looked suspicious when I went there, she took my money and said needed to go to the store with me. We did not do anything. Then she sat in my car and stole my wallet with license and credit cards.
    There are a couple of fraudulent charges. I immediately cancelled my cards. I am freaking about what could happen next. Could the fraudulent charges she made lead to the investigation? What’s the worst she can do with my license ?

    How could I protect myself from getting arrested? What is the procedure to get arrested? Can cops knock on my door and arrest me? If so do I need bail bondsmen to bail me out?

    For misdemeanors like these would cops check hotels security cameras?

    I am going to stay quiet for now. I see a charge on turo, not sure if they are planning for rental car theft.

    Good thinking.

    Consult an attorney before you do anything else.

    Typically an investigation leads to charges, not that other way around. It seems nobody is investigating anything.

    I suppose it could be fed to a dog or otherwise destroyed and never seen again.

    Stop talking about it and forget it ever happened. Stop associating with shady people.

    Yes, but why would they?

    No, but it is an option.

    Maybe. Are police investigating something?

    HUH?

    So you left someone in your car with your wallet? Your story makes no sense.

    I suggest that in the future you only meet reputable escorts.

    Thanks for your replies

    Police are not investigating anything yet, it just happened last night. But I reported fraudulent activity to my bank. I am worried if that might lead to things. Apparently they tried to use the card at a walmart. I am sure walmart secuirty cameras have them and what if they report this suspicious activity.

    Plus they have my driver's license. I am really scared at the moment. I should have just closed the card and not report it as fraud. I cannot have this revealed to my family, it will destroy everything.

    For whatever reason if cops show up, I am trying to prepare myself for the worst

    Whatever. If you play you'd better be prepared to pay.

    Like I said, your story makes no sense.

    That's exactly what happened, she walked out of the room to my car and sat in the car. I left my wallet in the car, she grabbed it with out my knowledge. I was nervous already and was in rush to get out of there

    The time to ensure you AVOID any REGRETS is before doing stupid "sheet"!

    This law professor offers useful information of any law enforcement agent shows up and tries to get you to talk.

    I suggest you watch these videos in their entirety and then do as the professor advises.

    The investigation?

    Investigation of what and by whom? If you're asking whether your reporting of the fraudulent charges on your credit card might lead to a law enforcement agency finding out that this all resulted from you paying a hooker, the answer is yes. How likely that might be isn't possible for us to predict. At some point, your credit card issuer may tell you that you are required to make a police report if you want to escape liability for charges on the card. You'll then have a choice to make.

    I don't see how it would be productive to create a hypothetical worst-case scenario.

    What's done is done.

    Typically, the police will place you in handcuffs and take you to the police station for booking. Given the nature of your crime, you might be able to avoid the cuffs. Of course, I'm skeptical that they'll care enough about this sort of thing, but we obviously don't know how much your local police might care.

    Yes.

    That would be one way to be bailed out (of course, that assumes the police/court doesn't release you on your own recognizance, which is entirely likely for this sort of thing).

    Thanks for your responses. I spoke to a few attorneys and I also withdraw dispute charges with my credit card. At this point, I am going to wait and see how it unfolds. I am going to maintain that i don't know how and where I lost my wallet.

    Sure thing.
    So the escort used my DL to check-in to a hotel and got caught. Police called me about it, I said I will come with my attorney.

    I maintained that I don't know where I lost my wallet.
    Is it possible for the escort to get into a plea bargain and expose me that i came to see her.

    I exchanged text messages with my google voice number which is linked to my actual mobile number. Can prosecution go that far to retrieve my records from Google corporation.

    If they prove that I lied and would the punishment be harsher

    In the abstract, virtually anything is possible.

    Prosecution of whom for what? Even if the hooker were to mention that she got your DL because you did whatever you did, you're not likely to be prosecuted for it. And, even if you got a solicitation charge, no one's going to go to the trouble of subpoenaing anything from Google for such a minor crime.

    Lied to whom?

    I understand that this has you freaked out, but my guess is that nothing's likely to come of it, so I suggest you try to relax and let this pass.

    At this point the "fisherman" BELIEVES the hook is set in the mouth of the large-mouth bass.

    Sniff Sniff Sniff, is that malodorous stench of another "hoax" in the air?

    Ah yes, yes it is the stench of "hoax" wafting about in cyberspace.

    Tee Hee Hee Hee Tee Haw haw haw pshaw giggle giggle titter, the "TS" "escort" (descriptor) gave it away for me?

    The over anxiousness, desperate confusion was the next clue, followed by the feigned ignorance, and the "my wallet was stolen, but I don't know what to do" desperation.

    Nice try, nice try, but epic fail!

    What gave it away for you?

    I mean if I lie in the court that I never texted that person or met her. But later public prosecutor presents the evidence from hotel security cameras or google call records that I am well aware of the incident. If judge finds me guilty would I get a harsher punishment than if i had told the truth. I know i am freaking out

    It would be a monumentally STUPID idea to lie in court.

    I know it's not right. But would there be consequences for that. I can get away with it if they don't get proofs

    Why would you do something as stupid as lying in court?

    Finds you guilty of what?

    As I wrote previously, nothing is likely to come of this, but the odds of something bad happening will increase significantly if you lie in court or to the police.
