San Francisco based escort website MyRedbook seized by FBI, 2 arrested

June 25, 2014 – A major escort (i.e. prostitution/human trafficking) review website has been shutdown by the FBI.  The San Francisco based escort review website MyRedbook.com was shutdown and the two owners, Eric Omuro, 53, and Annmarie Lanoce, 40, were arrested during a FBI raid at a home in Mountain View. Both are charged with one count of interstate travel in the aid of a racketeering enterprise, and Omuro is charged with an additional twenty-four counts of money laundering.

Because prostitution is illegal, the U.S. government will seize all money and assets bought by the illegal money.  The indictment seeks the forfeiture of more than $5 million in property and assets Omuro allegedly gained by facilitating prostitution.

Above: Don’t you just love the new website design cover of myredbook.com?  Other escort review websites will soon catch on to this website fashion trend.

MyRedbook.com was one major escort review website that is down.  Pretty soon other escort review websites and their staff and clients will follow the same path.

Prostitution and human trafficking occurs at an international level.  Some pimps and traffickers think by crossing country border lines, they can better avoid authorities.  As usual, they are wrong.  Authorities and law enforcement work together across country lines, and continuously get better coordinated and more effective in bringing these criminals down.

On January 17, 2013, Eun-Suk Sun (37) was arrested in Los Angeles for administrative immigration violations by U.S. immigration enforcement.  Sun was also wanted in a warrant issued in May 2011 by authorities in South Korea for operating a prostitution business in the Los Angeles area that employed other Korean women.

Sun was finally deported back to Seoul in April 2013.  HSI Seoul has coordinated the repatriation of 18 criminal fugitives to Korea and the return of three criminal fugitives wanted in the United States.
