Tracing Hookers

Looking for elusive sex workers and trafficking victims using adult advertising sites.

The FBI seized Backpage.com and the adult section of Craigslist and put up their own swank to let everyone know they evicted the previous tenants and moved on in. It was like Uncle Sam flipped investigative professionals the bird. These were the two most popular websites to find prostitutes worldwide.

The loss was not felt for long, as you can clearly see the volume of escort sites that popped up shortly after. Even if they started thin on content, they soon were busting at the seams with beautiful elitists call girls and boys who openly displayed their wares on its pages in hopes of keeping their dance card full. I’m sure this short list only scratches the surface on these types of sites.

I personally may only get two to five topless dancers or escorts in one year to skip trace and my only challenge is that their lifestyle with earning big daily cash or being supported by a sugar daddy places them in a category of not needing to apply for credit in order to survive. The other reason to keep up with these sites are for the investigators and volunteers who tirelessly search for sex trafficking victims.

Typical escort listings have VoIP, Google Voice, and burner cellphone numbers on the ads which may lead you to a dead-end if there isn’t any linked info in a professional database or found with OSINT tools. This data comes from many different sources, and for an identity to be linked to a phone number, it would need to be used to buy insurance, get utilities, apply for a loan, or perhaps sign up for a grocery store loyalty card.

Google doesn’t index these sites (some maybe yes, but not all) so you’re possibly going to be unsuccessful with a Google Alert or other typical search engine. Another big win is there are loads of photos for each listing which provides an opportunity to identify where the subject is located out of, such as a motel, hotel, apartment, or a house.

So you know a face and an area but don’t have a number? I’m sorry to say you’re going to be tortured with flipping page after page, but I noticed many sites have search features that allow a user to narrow down age, race, physical preferences, and regions are available which are helpful in regards to speeding up your search.
