The adult-services site Eros is still live for now, but federal agents seized servers, documents, and computers containing sensitive info on thousands of Americans in last Wednesday’s raid of its North Carolina headquarters. And the feds won’t say why.
“That is going to expose a whole bunch of innocent people,” Maxine Doogan, president of the Erotic Service Providers Legal, Education, and Research Project told Raleigh-Durham’s ABC 11. “There’s a big question about how the government will honor people’s privacy. People have the right to their privacy and they should not be convicted or set up for moral judgment for adult activity.”
Eros.com is billed as an “escort and adult entertainment directory.” It’s affiliated with a company called Bolma Star Services, run by Greg Huling, which operates out of Youngsville, North Carolina. But its reach is much, much broader: more than 100 area-specific sites worldwide.
