    Oh $hit!

    "Regarding any account which was created under my name and former personal credit card billing address, I routinely searches public records, online databases and websites of all types to provide clients with comprehensive reports. My utilization of this site was for standard opposition research. Unfortunately, it ended up being a waste of money and time."

    OMG, icon_eek.gif

    This must have been some sort of tip off, or were the feds doing their 'sting' operations? "homeland security", yeah right

    Rentboy.com advertisement is everywhere there is a local gay guide publication. They have been around since 1997 and the issue of "prostitution" comes up 18 years later? WTF

    There are many porn stars, gay and straight, that are also escorts on this site. I just have to wonder, 'who' exactly did this, obvious set up, to target the gay community. Come on, its 2015, not 1985, this is such a farce.

    Does this mean all webcam to webcam sex is next because some sites you pay to watch someone cum on cam? icon_rolleyes.gif

    I can't believe I didn't hear about this. A friend of mine was one of 7 arrested. I gotta go call him.

    My guess is that they were evading taxes and that's really why the gub'ment stepped in. It was well known that it was prostitution. Those kinds of "stings" don't take 20 years in the making to do. Even drug raids/busts don't take that long.

    I don't want to say too much since it's a federal case. He's not an escort though...just works in the office.

    What about the 100's of female escort sites? Does that just "bring the straight community down?"

    More self-loathing from an unfortunate, uninformed gay man who thinks heterosexual living is so pristine. icon_rolleyes.gif
    Well it probably is pristine compared to the grindr hookups he has to pay for behind the bushes in parks at night. icon_wink.gif

    This is like a really bad movie. All the old cliches and stereotypes I thought were safely out the door. To whom do I have to complain about waste of tax money?

    It's likely that someone gave the authorities the information that they needed to bust the operation. I really don't think it was about targeting gays, as there have been straight businesses ("massage parlors") busted for prostitution. When it comes to prosecutors, these sort of busts look good on a CV, so they will jump at the chance to make one.

    Something here doesn't make sense. They're being charged under the Travel Act (18 U.S.C. § 1952). Federalizing a state crime is a pretty major "to-do", and the prosecutor "might" have a good reason for doing so.

    There seems to be at least $10 million in unaccounted money upon which no tax has been paid, and (whether we like the law, or not) gained from what is clearly a criminal conspiracy under the law. (I wouldn't get away with that; you wouldn't; why should this guy? Because he's gay?)

    But even that doesn't seem like "enough".

    I'd err on the side of caution here, and wait for the other shoe to drop... Where's the money been going? And.. to whom? (Hint, hint, Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.... hence, "Homeland Security"...yes? icon_biggrin.gif

    The "massage parlors" are busted for human trafficking, and prostitution is just added to the charges to help them stick.

    This rentboy raid is pure anti-gay action, and has nothing to do with prostitution.

    Oh yeah, that's right. How dare me forget the REAL issue! Gay marriage is totally ruining straight marriage so much that the TSA, DHS, NSA, IRA, IRS, NBA, NFL, NHL, CPA, DHL, UPS, DDT, OMG, LOL, and even Mickey Mouse need to get involved to put a stop to such a horrible atrocity!
