Former Toys R Us Boss Stole £4M To Fund Champagne Lifestyle... Including Escort Who Charged £20,000 A Week

Recommended Posts

Lavished four prostitutes with millions of pounds

But kept second life secret and didn't give wife a penny

Authorities trying to reclaim Bentley and properties bought by prostitute Dawn Dunbar

A judge investigating a former Toys R Us boss who stole £4m expressed his disbelief today - over the £20,000 a week that a prostitute charged for her services.

Escort Dawn Dunbar, in her 30s, received the cash from Paul Hopes, 58, after he had filtered it through the accounts of the chain of toy stores.

The manager lavished Dunbar and three other prostitutes with gifts including a Bentley, foreign holidays and jewellery.

........

The judge calculated the weekly average she had received and questioned her, saying: 'The amount is not £500 pounds a week. It is not £1,000 pounds, or even £2,000 pounds a week.

'It is £20,000 pounds a week. How do you manage to evaluate your services - sex - at £20,000 pounds a week? "How do you justify that?" Miss Dunbar replied: "It wasn't me that was putting the worth on that. It was Mr Hopes paying what he thought it was worth.'

.....

Prosecutors estimate that Miss Dunbar has already spent a massive £750,000 pounds on houses, cars and holidays, and so they may only get back £800,000 pounds of her share of the money.

Amazingly, while supporting Miss Dunbar and four other prostitutes - processing stolen money through an account in the name of Dunbar Associates - Hopes was not spending any of the money on himself or his wife Gillian.

£20k a week, I wonder if she was the only punter that she saw? To a cynic it might appear she was in on it, but I'm sure she's well worth £20k a week, although there is no picture to base that on. Although perhaps she should have told the judge that's inflation for you....

Although I wonder what houses he bought and how much he paid for them.

Sounds like he was having a great time at the expense of ToysRUs.

Escort Dawn Dunbar, in her 30s

If I were spending £20k a week on escorts I'd expert at least an RS Cosworth.

Either that or a room full to bursting with teen lovelies, a bit like that scene in "Private Parts" with the tent full of lesbians.

You know the one I mean. ;)

Interesting case. Suppose you rob a bank and hand the bag of cash to a stranger outside. The stranger could argue, truthfully that he had no knowledge that the goods were stolen and is thus innocent. However you could probably get the cash back from him, provided he has not spent it.

This man, who as CEO of a large company, could be expected to be rich spent money on prostitutes. Now they are claiming it back. Yet they are not claiming back the money he spent on other things such as luxury hotels. That is inconsistent. How could a hotel, or any other vendor know?

If he had a large sum of legitimate cash, how are we determine which cash he spent on her? Perhaps her fees were all legitimate cash and the stolen cash was spent elsewhere.

Quite. Seems a bit odd to me. Maybe she didn't declare her earnings?

Havent seen that one, got a link?

Can't post a link as such but if you Google "quicksilver screen private parts" you'll find it.

Here's a link to a picture of the scene in question (not 100% office friendly if you know what I mean). LINK

Very good film. Howard Stern is surprisingly good (although he is playing himself which helps).

He wasn't a CEO, he was a purchase ledger clerk.

"However, after looking at her in court, Judge Stephen John took a different view on her worth – and ruled that while £2,000 might be a fair price for seven days of sex, £20,000 was completely over the top."

This is excellent.

The court seems to be distinguishing money given as payment which she can keep, just like the money spent on hotels and the like, and money that was a gift, which she can't.

I'm sure we can trust the esteemed judge to know exact market price of an escort. ;)

Personally if were spending £20K per week on escorts I hire a luxury Caribbean beach house and fill it with models, but hey, that's just me, whatever floats your boat. :P

This has got to be a fecking joke.

A quick search for 'Glasgow Escorts' brings up this

http://www.sexyindependentescorts.com/scottish-escorts.html (Dont click on if at work or the Missus is about :lol:)

So £1500 for overnight services is the going rate for a fairly decent pro. This guy was supposedly spending 20 large a week on that munter :blink:

Well at least you could book for an hour at say £150. Somewhat cheaper than £20K

For research having a quick click through them and everyone so far seems to suggest they are bi, although not all will do couples??? Does that mean if you hire 2 they won't get involved with each other or that they just won't do a couple?
