Craigslist to crack down on prostitution ads

Enforcement is part of an agreement with attorneys general in 40 states

 

HARTFORD, Conn. - Under the watchful eye of law enforcement in 40 states, Craigslist pledged Thursday to crack down on ads for prostitution on its Web sites.

 

As part of Craigslist's agreement with attorneys general around the country, anyone who posts an "erotic services" ad will be required to provide a working phone number and pay a fee with a valid credit card. The Web site will provide that information to law enforcement if subpoenaed.

I wonder when will it go in effect? I sometimes advertise massage on there. I can make more off the cl than with any of my paid ads. I have no problem with providing a cc and a phone number.

Well once all those AG's are done keeping Americans safe

 

from Orgasms, maybe they could spend some time

 

investigating/prosecuting the underlying fraud which in great part

 

lead to the subprime mortgage meltdown.

They didn't waste anytime its now 5.00 to post on the cl erotic section. I kinda like the idea. it will cut down on those who post 100 times aday.

I just went to Craigslist (Erotic) in SFBay Area. I now know why there are fewer ads ever during this time of day.

 

In the past I've written to a very few guys here (C's L) and have asked why they had posted a beautiful shot of a turgid dick, cock, pipe, pole, etc.....

 

There are over 300+ words in the glossary of DICK for a man's penis.) Most responded candidly but not rudely!

Thanks for the update. It explains why there are so few posts in my city section. I too think its a good idea. If nothing else, as you mentioned, it will remove the people who post so often each day.

 

edit-

I did notice that some of the more fly by night working boys are starting to clutter the men seeking men section though :(

I booked myself solid for today and tomorrow giving massages. there were only 15 post today after the new policy took effect. You get a few calls from guys that dont get it that you cant answer certain questions.

LOL! I'm visiting Las Vegas, arrived yesterday - and couldn't figure out why there were so incredibly few postings here on CL erotic services. Now I know why!

 

Mind you, I wouldn't ever hire from CL in Las Vegas, I was just trying to kill some time until my scheduled/reviewed escort showed up.

In case you were wondering, “The states that signed the agreement are Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, New Jersey, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming. Washington, D.C., the U.S. Virgin Islands and Guam also joined.”

 

 

(CraigsList CEO Jim) Buckmaster said the agreement does not cover Craigslist's personal ads, where prostitutes have been found advertising for "dates." But he said the San Francisco-based company has been working with authorities on that issue and on cutting down on the sale of stolen merchandise on its sites.

 

"We are experimenting with telephone verification in those sections," he said. "We don't have any plans to use credit card verification in that section currently. But this partnership is going to be active in that area as well, anywhere where crime does or could occur."

 

 

Seems like this is an attempt to run the amateurs out of town, and may be good news for more established service providers.

 

At least until the Attorneys General find themselves with some extra time on their hands. :o

<You would think that law enforcement would have something else better to do!> PRECISELY! I am in 1000th agreement with you!

 

Clean up some streets in our cities from crime that does harm, not the innocuous sexual trysts that occur throughout our cities without (in the majority of cases) doing any harm to anyone!

You can't really expect that to happen, can you? You're forgetting that the vice squad has to get their jollys too.

 

I wonder if this has - or will - be extended to include Canada?
