These are a few news articles about Backpage and The Sheriff – featuring the trouble that Backpage.com, the grand daddy of listing sites… is dealing with.
As of July/2015 (Yes, just weeks ago!) Backpage.com can NOT accept credit, debit or gift cards to pay for adult ads. The adult section is their $100 million/year cash cow.
This action was instigated by Cook County Sheriff Thomas Dart. He sent a detailed letter to the CEOs of MasterCard and Visa pleading with them to stop accepting payments for Backpage’s adult section.
In the letter he argues that Backpage plays a large role in promoting sex trafficking across the U.S. by offering ads for prostitutes.
Since many of you guys look for adult services (often) in the Backpage.com listings I thought you’d be interested in the below news articles.

The second link goes to a Chicago Sun-Times which is less supportive of the sex work industry. It demonstrates the jumbled attitude this country has toward sex and sex work in general.
