Craigslist Lets Scammers Use Kimora Lee Simmons's Name

Periodically, I go into just shy of foaming at the mouth rants (on and off Twitter) about the rampant human trafficking reportedly originating via Today, it appears, Kimora Lee Simmons's name is being used in, whether connected to human trafficking for sure or not, a scam to get aspiring models to a "casting call". See the ad below (click to enlarge):

How disgusting. Kimora only found out about it because one of her followers on Twitter asked her about the casting call that she was having. Kimora told her that she was not and checked it out after the young lady forwarded her the link. She responded with this:

Pls RT! This is a SCAM!! Not from me at all! I am NOT connected! A Shame for aspirational young fabs!--> #fauxfabulous #deranged #Lies #sad #fb
What I really don't understand is, why the hell is the ad still up?! Craig Newmark, the scumbag who founded Craigslist and who has on more than one occasion offered no good explanation for why he allows ads with underage girls to be posted on his site for "adult services", calls himself a "customer service rep and founder for Craigslist" on his own Twitter page. Well, get to serving Craig! Take the ad down!

Spread the word about this so no unsuspecting young men and women get themselves into a situation that they can't so easily get out of. Contact Craig Newmark via Twitter, or as one of Kimora's other followers suggested, go to the post and flag it as spam or prohibited. Always do your due dilligence and do some research before you go to these things. It's a crazy world out there. --Sugar
