The man dialed 999 after meeting the woman in a hotel car park, saying that he “wished to report her for breaching the Sale of Goods Act”, according to the BBC.

During the call, the man told a representative at an emergency call centre: “I’ve arranged a meeting with her, but beforehand I’ve asked her for an honest description, otherwise when I get there I’m not going to use her services.

“Basically she has misdescribed herself, misrepresented herself totally.

“She was angry because she obviously thinks I owe her a living or something.”

Sgt Jerome Moran of Birmingham police called the unidentified man back “I told him that she’d not committed any offences and that it was his actions, in soliciting for sex, that were in fact illegal.”

The man was sent a letter as a warning about his actions. Police told the Birmingham Mail: “Wasting police time is a serious offence and carries a maximum sentence of six months imprisonment.”
