Backpage, the longtime classified ads sites best known for users selling all kinds of wares, has been shut down by the Justice Department.
The FBI has seized classified advertisement website Backpage.
The founder of sex-ad platform Backpage.com was slapped with federal charges on Friday after officials seized control of the website and raided his Phoenix-area home.
The text of the banner further states the website was seized as "part of an enforcement action by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, and the Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigation Division, with analytical assistance from the Joint Regional Intelligence Center".
Lawmakers on Capitol Hill and advocacy groups have long called for an investigation into Backpage.com for allegedly facilitating prostitution and sex trafficking.

The posting said the U.S. Justice Department would provide more information at 6 p.m. EDT. However, a judge decided that the federal case should remain sealed on Friday night. The total number of defendants named in the sealed indictment is not now public information. The site's controversial adult section has often come under fire for allegations of prostitution and the sex trafficking of minors.
