Craigslist is a popular place with the law.

And if you're looking for an online lover, you might find yourself on the wrong side of real handcuffs.

There's nothing wrong with looking for an experience online. Match.com and eHarmony.com have made millions with lonely hearts looking for love.

But some of the ads on Craigslist are just selling sex. And who wants to buy what they can get for free?

Here are the warning signs that your online booty call is going to ask you to pay per stroke:

  1. If the ad says cash and carry, it's probably a prostitute.
  2. If the ad says e-mail me for rates, you guessed it.
  3. If the ad says will work it off in trade, you got it.

Seriously, Craig's List, according to the FBI is becoming a place where pimps are selling young girls. Since 2003, the FBI has recovered 577 children through it's Innocence Lost investigation.
