That Wall Street Prostitution Ring Is Still Going
Senior Editor, CNBC.com
Following Wednesday's indictments of 17 people accused of running a $7 million prostitution ring, all of the websites allegedly operated by the accused are still up—and at least one of them is still "servicing" callers.
A phone number clearly printed on the angelofyourchoice.com homepage led NBC New York to a receptionist who offered to book an escort named "Jane" for $600 an hour.
"She is on 43rd Street and Broadway, that’s the Carter Hotel, I think," said the unidentified voice.
When NBC New York took a hidden camera to the hotel, a blond woman who called herself Jane answered the hotel room door. After a few pleasantries, she outlined her price schedule.
"Six hundred for one hour," said the self-described model.
She insisted any cash she might receive would be for her companionship only, but detectives say angelofyourchoice.com is really a front for pure prostitution.
