The purging of paid sex services on the site came after Connecticut attorney general Richard Blumenthal contacted Craigslist on behalf of 40 states.
In March, Craigslist began asking its erotic services advertisers to provide a phonewhich an automated system calls. The system re a series of digits, which the advertiser types into a Web as verification before the ad will appear on the site. Craigslist said that ended most of the illicit material.
Under the broader agreement announced Thursday, Craigslist is going further, asking that advertisers provide valid identification. Buckmaster said—-and require that they use a credit card for the payment.
