Craigslist, States' AGs Agree On Treatment Of "Erotic Services" Ads

Forty states' attorneys general and the popular online site Craigslist have come to an agreement concerning those "erotic services" ads that have been proliferating, and gaining attention, since last year. Craigslist will now require such advertisers to verify their identities and pay for their ads using credit cards, and it will funnel such payments to NGOs engaged in supporting and fighting for women's and children welfare. Read more about the agreement between Craiglist and law enforcement here in a New York Times story.
