The Ozone Park-based outfit, Room Service Entertainment, was so hush-hush that it dealt with its clients in code, according to a count indictment unsealed yesterday.
Craigslist has been linked to two horrific murders recently. In April, a beautiful New York masseuse was shot to death in Boston, allegedly by a man who responded to her advertisement on the site.
Last week, Craigslist announced it was canning its erotic-services section and replacing it with adult-services listings monitored by employees. The attorney general of South Carolina has threatened to file prostitution charges against the San Francisco-based company.
Five members of the Queens ring were indicted on charges of enterprise corruption, conspiracy and money laundering. State Attorney General Andrew Cuomo said bookers would answer the phones and ask each customer his location and what he was looking for. They would then allegedly tell him who and what was available, give the rate and set up an appointment.
