    Toys R Us director paid prostitute 20,000 a week

    An incredulous judge asked a prostitute to justify to him how she could charge a client 20,000 a week - even though he was a company director.

    2:14PM BST 13 Sep 2011


    Judge Stephen John berated the call-girl over her charges for the sexual services she provided to a director of children's favourite firm Toys R Us.
    Dawn Dunbar told the judge that although she realised her fees were 10-times the usual going rate, they were for services rendered to disgraced Paul Hopes.
    Judge John calculated the weekly average she had received and questioned her, saying: "The amount is not 500 a week. It is not 1,000, or even 2,000 a week.
    "It is 20,000 a week. How do you manage to evaluate your services - sex - at 20,000 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 trying to reclaim 3.7 million 59-year-old jailed Hopes stole from his employers, argued successfully that most of the money was given to Miss Dunbar and not earned by her, and could therefore by confiscated.
    The judge ruled that receivers appointed to chase the remaining cash and any assets bought with them should also reclaim a 25,000 Lexus GS300 Miss Dunbar bought for the prostitutes' father Frank, a 30,000 Toyota Landcruiser she bought for her husband Martin Iheanacho, and her own 42,000 Lexus RS400h 4x4 car.
    The enforcement team will also go after properties she bought, both in the UK and a 60,000 plot of land in her husband's native Nigeria, and nearly 400,000 in bank accounts which were frozen by the High Court.
    A 132,000 Bentley Continental which disgraced Hopes bought for her after she reportedly told him: "Every girl wants a Bentley", has already been confiscated.
    Prosecutors estimate that Miss Dunbar has already spent a massive 750,000 on houses, cars and holidays, and so they may only get back 800,000 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.
    She has since divorced him and been awarded the family home, in Woodley, Berks., by the courts.
    Dunbar said that at the time she had met Hopes she had been separated from her husband and was living in Feltham, Middx., with their two children.
    After a job at a bookmakers, earning barely 10,000 per year, she turned to offering "escort service" through Gemini, a massage parlour in Reading, Berkshire, where she met Hopes on her first day, in January 2005.
    Their arrangement began with an agreed weekly fee of 500 for her services, before he requested that she leave the business and see him exclusively, for a weekly fee of 1,000. That continued with him also giving her additional payments and making extravagant gestures.
    "Everything I received was a payment for my escort services and for him to see me exclusively," said the working girl in the witness box at Reading Crown Court.
    She added: "He said I was his mistress, which I was, but in a specific meaning; He would call me his mistress if he wanted me to beat him and whip him and treat him quite badly."
    Hopes was only caught when a neighbour grew suspicious of Miss Dunbar's extravagant lifestyle and reported her to the police.
    She insisted that while she knew Hopes worked in finance for Toys R Us, she believed his story that he was very rich and that the money was from stocks and shares.
    "I have been very honest," she said.
    "From the beginning I have been asked where the money came from and I told the truth. I was up front with the police."
    Judge John replied: "The fact that you have been up front with the police does not mean you get to keep the money."
    Mr Iheanacho was warned by the judge about possibly incriminating himself as he admitted he knew about his wife's occupation. It is a criminal offence to make a financial gain from prostitution.
    He also refused to tell the court how he had been earning at the time and said he never questioned his wife over the money she had, even though she was suddenly buying property, driving a Bentley and giving him a 30,000 car.
    "I didn't ask nothing," he told the judge.
    Martin Evans, prosecuting, said: "On her own best estimate, she (Dunbar) was entitled to perhaps 200,000 during this period.
    "She in fact received in excess of 1,750,000. She received 10 times more than the valuation she put on the service that was provided.
    "Miss Dunbar has, putting it bluntly, already spent and no doubt enjoyed vastly more than the value of the consideration (the service) provided."
    When Mr Dunbar spoke up in support of his daughter, the judge told him: "She has done very well out of this, whichever way you look at this."
    He added in his ruling: "She can have no possible complaint if enforcement now follows, which it will, in respect of the assets which remain."
    Hopes, of Colemansmoor Road, Woodley, Berkshire, worked for Toys R Us in Maidenhead, Berkshire for 23 years and was a purchase ledger manager.
    He admitted 14 counts of theft and four counts of money laundering, involving 3,683,592.67.
    At a hearing in December 2009 he was jailed for seven years and ordered to repay the money. A decision to add a further 10 years onto his sentence in the event the money is not repaid has been stayed until the end of the confiscation proceedings.
    Another enforcement hearing concerning a further 600,000 pounds given by Hopes to another prostitute, Tanya Wieck, was due to take place in the coming weeks.

    So if they get all the money back, technically she was raped.

    Very interesting. The CEO of Toys R Us, John Eyler, was my boss 20 years ago. I just found out that he was stepping down because the company is being acquired by a private investment group.

    He obviously preferred the brass to coming home to this:



    I remember once when my ex-missus came into the bedroom in a new see-through baby doll nightie. You could see everything. Track suit bottoms, tank top....

    Her Nigerian born husband,
    '' Mr Iheanacho was warned by the judge about possibly incriminating himself as he admitted he knew about his wife's occupation. It is a criminal offence to make a financial gain from prostitution.''
    he answered
    '' "I didn't ask nothing,"
    cleverly using a double negative, to avoid perjuring himself ?
    or just a thick as fuk- yes we haven't got no bananas - African ?

    The financial mess many countries are in deserves equal treatment. It would be nice if the gov't went after the bankers assets this way to help recover losses. The Toys 'R' Us guy goes to jail but how many financial dirtbags have gone besides Bernie Madoff?



    As for the ugly women in the pictures well I'm sure your Thai wives and girlfriends have to go home to something similar, don't you think?
