Officers could hardly believe their ears when the man reported the woman for “breaching the Sale of Goods Act
An outraged punter dialled 999 because the prostitute he had just hired was UGLY.
Officers could hardly believe their ears when the man reported the woman for “breaching the Sale of Goods Act.”
In a fury, he told how he had said to the hooker she didn’t come up to scratch and had mis-sold herself.
But she then hurled his car keys at him and stormed off from their meeting place outside a hotel.
An officer in the call centre at Solihull, Birmingham, informed him the woman had not committed an offence and it was he who had broken the law by soliciting for sex.
West Midlands Police has now warned him about wasting police time – punishable by up to six months jail.
A force spokesman said: “The man refused to give his details, but police identified him and have sent him a letter.
"Wasting police time is a serious offence and carries a maximum sentence of six months imprisonment."
The Sale of Goods Act 1979 stipulates goods must be of satisfactory quality, be fit for purpose and match the sellers’ description.
In the recording, lasting 1min 35secs, the unidentified male caller claims the woman had "mis-described" and "misrepresented herself".
He is heard telling the female call handler that the woman he had agreed to meet had advertised herself "in the private section of the newspaper" but "had got her knickers in a twist" after he told her he was not going to use her services.
"I arranged to meet with her," he is heard to say.
"But beforehand I have asked for a description of her - give me an honest description otherwise when I get there I'm not going to use your services.
"She's mis-described and misrepresented herself totally. She was angry - she thinks I owe her a living or something."
