How to Protect Yourself from Backpage ad fraud
By now, you’ve probably heard about the ad fraud scandal at Backpage, where the website where you can find ads for sex workers and prostitution was forced to close its doors after its ads for prostitution were exposed.
The ads were found to have been placed on a website called Backpage and were sold with fake profiles.
The ad fraud was discovered after a woman reported her ads to Backpage but was refused service.
In a video on Backpage’s official YouTube channel, the owner of the site, John Lott, said the ad-fraud problem was caused by a small group of people who were making money off ads.
“They would make money off people buying a product, selling the product,” he said.
“The problem is the people that bought the product.
That’s what made the problem.”
Lott said that he and his company would be shutting down their business and had decided to take the site down temporarily.
“We will be doing that and then going back up,” he added.
“And then we’ll be back.”
The video was made on April 19th and has received more than 3.4 million views.
In the video, Lott explained that the site had not been able to continue to survive as a business and that it was not sustainable.
“I don’t think we’re ever going to get back the money we made from ads,” he stated.
“This is a huge problem.”
The ad scam is a fairly new one in the United States.
Backpage has long been used as a place to advertise for escort services and for sex work, and it was one of the most popular sites to advertise.
The site was able to attract a large number of users through the ads that were placed on it.
The website also had a large amount of users that paid for goods and services.
However, many of the buyers were not legitimate customers and were simply looking to make a quick buck by advertising themselves on the site.
The company had been operating on a smaller scale, and Lott told Business Insider that Backpage had lost money on every sale that it made.
However Lott did not specify exactly how much the company lost.
The owner of Backpage told Business Insider that it would be more accurate to say that the company made money from ads.
It is unclear how much money Backpage actually made from the ad scam, and the company is still working to get to the bottom of the issue.
The CEO of Backstage, Kevin Koester, told BusinessInsider that he did not believe the ads were fake.
“If we are proven to be fake, we’ll take immediate action,” he told Businessinsider.
“There is nothing fraudulent about ads at Backstage.
We do a great job.
We are in the sex business and we’re proud to advertise and we do a tremendous job,” he continued.
The FTC and the Justice Department have not announced a response yet to Backstage’s allegations.
