• Craigslist Adult Services Shut Down Worldwide

    Craigslist’s Adult Services section, an online red light district that has been the subject of a great deal of controversy over the past few years, has been shut down worldwide, Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal confirmed to the AP Tuesday.
    Craigslist removed Adult Services listings from its U.S. website in early September, following the suicide of 24-year-old Philip Markoff, who had been accused of murdering one and robbing three women he met through listings in the section.

    Adult Services, which was previously titled “Erotic Services,”was expected to generate $36 million in revenue this year for Craigslist, nearly one-third of the $122 million the entire company has been projected to pull in.
    “This move is another important step in the ongoing fight to more effectively screen and stop pernicious prostitution ads,” Blumenthal told the AP.
