McKenna Agrees to Crackdown on Craigslist

Posted:

OLYMPIA, Wash. -- State Attorney General Rob McKenna has agreed to include Washington in a nationwide effort to crackdown on inappropriate content and illegal activity on the online classifieds site "craigslist".

43 states will take part in the attempt to address crimes like child pornography, child prostitution, and human trafficking. The agreement will force users who post "erotic services" ads to provide a working phone number and pay their posting fee with a valid credit card.

Craigslist is planning to sue 14 software companies that help users who post "erotic services" ads get around their security measures.
