The Web site will provide that informationif subpoenaed. They should have no problem providing a phone or credit card credentials. Craigslist, which posts 30 million every month for everything from apartment rentals to jobs in hundreds of cities, will also begin using new search technology in an effort to help authorities find missing children and victims of human trafficking.
Police across the country have been arresting people for using Web sites like Craigslist to advertise the sexual services of women and children. Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal, who brokered the agreement, said his office contacted Craigslist after receiving several complaints from users late in about photographs depicting nudity on the site.
He said Craigslist cooperated fully and there was never a need to threaten legal action against the company. But this partnership is going to be active in that area as well, anywhere where crime does or could occur.
