Adoption scam on backpage

Scam Website Ads Offer Kids For Adoption:

In Pittsburgh a local news station turned up adoption ads on their local site. Of course these ads are a scam designed to get prospective parents to wire money when no child actually exists.

Surprisingly backpage was quick to respond to these ads…

In an email to Team 4, a spokesman for said, “Thanks for reaching out to us. Both postings violate our site’s terms of use. We will remove them shortly. They are both examples of an overseas wire money scam.”

Yet the sexual trafficking of children still continues unabated on backpage. Just sayin’. prevents scams like this by screening all their ads.
