As of Friday, when you try to click on the "personals" section of Craigslist, a pop up comes up. Any tool or service can be misused. We can't take such risk without jeopardizing all our other services, so we are regretfully taking craigslist personals offline. Hopefully we can bring them back some day. To the millions of spouses, partners, and couples who met through craigslist, we wish you every happiness!
Even though Craigslist shut down the "personals" section, Hardin says there are a handful of other sites that have known links to traffickers, including Back. Back does have a warning for users telling them to be aware and report suspicious activity, though it's unclear if this is a reaction to the recent bill or not.
Back recently got rid of its escort section. A study from Creighton University says individuals were posted on their escort from the Quad Cities. Though its unclear if or how many were trafficking victims.
Hardin says Back and Craigslist are the most visible s used by traffickers, but there are others that are harder to get to. The bill curbing the trafficking problem online will now head to President Trump's desk, he is expected to it. All of the QC area Representatives and Senators voted for the bill.
