According to Sfgate.com, two San Fransisco based websites MyRedbook.com and sfredbook.com were seized by the federal government yesterday.
The alleged operators of the sites, Eric Omuro, and Annmarie Lanoce, were arrested Wednesday.
“Omuro was charged with 24 counts of money laundering in connection with alleged transfers of the website’s revenue into bank accounts.
“Federal authorities are seeking to seize $5.4 million in cash and property from Omuro and Lanoce, the alleged windfall from the operation since April 2010.”
The website allegedly allowed sex workers to advertise their services for free and customers to rank their experiences. It purported to offer escorts, dancers and other adult entertainment.
