One of the world’s largest classified ads company Backpage.com, has been seized and disabled by the federal government (US).

Backpage.com did not go down alone but with all affiliated websites. This enforcement action was carried out by the federal Bureau of Investigation, the US Postal Inspection Service and the Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigation Division, with analytical assistance from the Joint Regional Intelligence Centre.

The company which supposedly offers classified listings for a wide variety of products and services including job listings and real estate was confirmed to be involved in pimping, sex trafficking and money laundering charges many times, playing host to sex and child trafficking, hence the actions taken against it.

Furthermore, the FBI also raided the home of Backpage co-founder, Michael Larcey, according to a report by Arizona CBS affiliate.

  1. Hello ,

    I saw your tweets and thought I will check your website. Have to say it looks very good!
    I’m also interested in this topic and have recently started my journey as young entrepreneur.

    I’m also looking for the ways on how to promote my website. I have tried AdSense and Facebok Ads, however it is getting very expensive. Was thinking about starting using analytics. Do you recommend it?
    Can you recommend something what works best for you?

    Would appreciate, if you can have a quick look at my website and give me an advice what I should improve: http://janzac.com/
    (Recently I have added a new page about FutureNet and the way how users can make money on this social networking portal.)

    I have subscribed to your newsletter. 🙂

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    P.S.
    Maybe I will add link to your website on my website and you will add link to my website on your website? It will improve SEO of our websites, right? What do you think?

    Regards
    Jan Zac
