Author Topic: Backpage.com boss arrested for pimping  (Read 1955 times)

Looks like Backpage's days as an ad space for escorts are very numbered. The CEO has been arrested on pimping charges as he flew into the States and warrants are out for the two main shareholders.

That leaves mainly VivaStreet in the online ads market - bet their management team are cancelling any plans for trips to the US!

Backpage is the market leader for prostitution ads in the US with well over 25 per cent of the market - and the Americans have a habit of making an example to discourage others.

Remember the CEO of BetonSports who got three almost three years for racketeering (illegal online betting) when his flight changed in the US?

It's one of those grey areas - when does carrying an ad become pimping/pandering - but if you read the coverage the authorities claim they overstepped the mark by encouraging ads and teaching people how to keep them legal even though they knew the real purpose. At least Craigslist actually has flats and washing machines for sale too - my local Backpage had 15 items for sale and about 200 'adult' escort and massage ads.

Interesting story which has led me to look at BackPage for a punt in Belfast soon, and there are more and better looking ladies than on AW.

Put "backpage sting 2016 " in to google and you will see the number of arrests of working girls across the USA who advertise on backpage. Thank good I did not go punting while in the states.

Yeah, seen a few of those documentaries about the stings. You'd have hoped the american coppers would have other priorities, but it's still such a religious place, and the media love a bit of salaciousness. Although, there does seem to be more of a problem with domestic trafficking/Pimping in the US, and much more of a hard drug problem i guess. It is crazy the resources that go into these 'stings' though.

Hypocrisy and bullying, as usual. The home of pornography clamps down on the real thing - and everyone in the world expected to follow U.S. two-faced law

It's well known for fake profiles and bait and switch.  Most of the pictures are stolen off internet models, same with viva too.

This is a country where almost everyone owns a gun but it is illegal to shag prostitutes, absolutely crazy. :crazy:

Imagine an American posting avout the UK: This is a country where almost everyone shags prostitutes but it is illegal to own a gun. absolutely crazy. :crazy:

Haha good point, although I've never been able to get a punt in Walmart/Asda.

Do you think if you could then you could rate them as basics, standard and finest.

whole foods would be the place to get the 'best quality' etc...

Yes, its a joke. They call it ''the land of the free''. Its anything but free unless you like guns. On another forum, a Yank said about the Edinburgh saunas, ''You guys dont know how good you have it.'' 'nuff said about the 'land of the free' where the like can only be found in Las Vegas. I had to convince him that the police would not entrap and charge him with a criminal act because he was in a sauna. He was genuinely scared that this would happen.

Just had an appalling "happy ending" punt,having the right to own a gun and blow my brains out might have been preferable. :dash:
