"Frank & Jim the bodybuilders" have been calling or texting Massage Therapists trying to get them to come to their home to massage their "muscly glutes and hamstrings", often requesting no draping. It appears to be an Australia-wide scam, possibly to compile a list of therapists who will offer more than just massage. MTs, do not book them! I got a message yesterday asking me to train them for their glutes and hamstrings also asking if I’d be comfortable for them to wear speedo/posing trunks. They wanted 4 nights. They gave me an Endeavour Hills address. Thank god I had an uneasy feeling in my stomach. Then googled and saw these messages. Thank you google. Thank you for all the feedback! Received same message.... Not replying. Brilliance of google!!! Caller: Jim, Jon and Fati
February 2019 and this is still happening. Questions asked raised flags for me so I googled and found this.
found ya c*nt. Just got this msg, "Hi, Can you visit to do sports/deep tissue massage on our glutes &hamstrings please. Male Bodybuilders from Cranebrook"
I went to book then they asked "Would you be comfortable to do it without towels and we were a thong to show our hot toned glutes?"
Like who the hell says that!!!
Reported to my Police Client!!!
Caller: Same guys!
Their message read:Hi Melissa can you please visit our home to do professional massage on our glutes & hamstrings? Male bodybuilders Jim, John & fati in newtown NSW
He also got angry when I sounded reluctant so thanks google as I’ll block them!! What a sleazy scam!!
Just got the message 'Hi, Do you do Boudoir photography for men? Male bodybuilders Jim & Fatmir in Red Hill'! Yes I'm a photographer :/ Same similar messages, said they have 2 tables no towels required, and even texted me in nz.
I'm trying to figure out if it's one or the other of these 2 profiles?

Thank you for posting this. I also received this message (in Brisbane) and did not take the booking request. I used facebook search to put the number in and it identified a person in Victoria. Caller: Jim, John & Fati
Same happened to me. Asking me to do massage at their house in Northcote for glutes and hamstrings only. 3 male bodybuilders.
They then asked can they wear speedos and no towels - spend 1 hour on their glutes and hamstrings only. Saying 'thanks darl'.
Yuck!! I have reported them to scamwatch.gov.au - they need to be stopped!
Caller: SMS from Jim, John & Fati
Wanted a home visit massage for 3 bodybuilders on their glutes and hamstrings.
Advised which area I was in and that I only provide relaxation massage not remedial.
SMS return saying they would like relaxation massage.
Looked up the phone number online to find 77 complaints, advised them of this a refused to provide service.
They responded "Yep whatever!! Since when have female massage therapists become detectives suddenly??? Who cares believe what you want!??

So it first started off with this message Can you please visit our home to do professional massage on all our glutes & hamstrings mainly? 3 male bodybuilders Jim, John & Fati in Auckland nz, then I replied Hey !
Thanks for your message
When do you require massage thanks?
And how long each?
Thanks then he replied ..
Hi gin sorry for late reply as I was busy working. We're available mainly on weekends, but some weekdays also. We would love an hour each on all our glutes & hamstrings mainly please. When can you visit us? Thanks & kind regards Jim, John & Fati?????? Then after this I started clicking onto them as there requests started getting very strange like can you massage me in speedos can you massage two people at the same time and they said that they work full time and then I said how about Wednesday 5 pm and he said great and yes to 5pm but, how can all three guys be available at 5 pm if they all work full time ? So I stop replying and then he will text me “hi I’m still waiting for a response” he text me three times at one go to get me to reply , I then said can I please have a deposit to make sure that this booking is legit and confirmation payment so he said sure what’s your bank account details but no sign of a deposit , I then explained as a professional massage therapist I cannot message to people at once he’s then agreed and after he said he was putting in the deposit he asked for some really strange requests like asking if I would massage his glutes with my nose and if I would put my nose in between his bum cheeks , i’ve been said sorry I think you’re after a dominatrix I do not offer this type of massage and then he asked yes please can I have some Whipping then I just stop replying I’m not sure what these guys are up to but it’s very weird .... i’m in New Zealand and the number he was texting me off as an Australian number so I’m not sure what I should do about it but I’ve stopped replying and blocked the number

Sorry this business no longer exists
Then why is it still on Facebook?? Doesn't sound right!😕
I still have this business name as I instruct other forms of fitness now. Just not personal training
Do you give any stretching sessions or so?
Sorry no I specialise in Acro and dance. I now just teach at a female only studio. If you can see my Facebook you will notice I teach for pole divas. I no longer do the others.
You can contact another PT for their help.
I figured you would say that. Bye bye!
