17 people have been indicted “on charges of running a high-end prostitution ring that catered to Wall Street clients who often spent more than $10,000 in a night,” according to Reuters, via Zerohedge.
The illegal ring, which is called High Class NY, earned its overseers more than $7 million over a three year period.
High Class operated 24 hours a day from Brooklyn, and catered strictly to “high-end customers coming from the financial markets,” many of whom were hedge funders.
One client “dropped a stunning $170,000 for its steamy services,” the New York Post reported.
Services cost clients anywhere between $400 to $3,600 an hour, Reuters reported, and clients were reportedly even provided with cocaine.
“Customers would use code phrases, such as “I’d like a bottle of Champagne,” when they wanted cocaine with their hooker — and were charged a steep markup in return,” according to the New York Post.
Prostitutes working for High Class NY described themselves as “models.”
This is how High Class NY described itself, on the company website:

We introduce fashion models, pageant winners, exquisite students, graduates, and women of successful careers to gentlemen with exceptional standards as NYC Escorts.
