Man calls police to complain about 'ugly prostitute'

A Birmingham man dialled 999  on Tuesday evening after he met a hooker in a car park in the dark and found out she was not as pretty  as she claimed.

The man complained to police that the prostitute had breached Britain’s Sale of Goods Act which states “the  purchase needed to be of satisfactory quality and fit for purpose”, Telegraph reports.

But an officer in the call centre at Solihull, Birmingham, responded by telling the man the woman had not committed any offences and explained to him that paying for sex was illegal.

The operator sounds frustrated and questions the man: “What’s happened then? Something’s obviously happened.”

The man replies: “What’s happened is basically this woman she’s like basically advertised in the newspaper for like private services like massages and stuff.”

“She’s miss-described herself and misrepresented herself totality,” he tells the phone operator.

The Sale of Goods Act 1979 states that all goods must match the sellers’ description.

Police  were able to identify the man and sent him a  letter warning him about wasting police time.
