For A Good Time, Call...

MAY 13--With Craigslist today announcing a crackdown on classified ads offering sex for money, prostitutes everywhere will have to come up with alternative ways to promote their illegal services. However, the marketing scheme cooked up recently by one Iowa woman should not be copied. Samantha Jo Daniel, 18, was arrested last Friday after cops learned of a handwritten offer scrawled on an elevator wall in an apartment building in Marshalltown. The guerilla advertisement read, 'Will Fuck for $,' and included a phone number. Daniel was nabbed in an undercover sting operation and charged with a misdemeanor prostitution count, according to a police press release. She was booked into the Marshall County Jail, where her mug shot was taken.
