KAMLOOPS, B.C. - An escort agency in Kamloops, B.C., is under fire over allegations it was contacting teenaged girls through Facebook as part of a recruiting effort.
A 17-year-old Kamloops girl says she and several of her friends were contacted on Facebook by Angels After Dark, an agency that boasts the hottest escorts in Kamloops.
The girl -- who wants to remain anonymous -- says she didn't respond, but when some of her friends did, the agency asked if they were underage, and when they said yes, the agency asked if they had any legally-aged friends who wanted to make up to $500 a day.
The girl says it was obviously part of a recruiting effort and she's disgusted by the approach.
While the company's website is still up, its Facebook profile has been taken down and no one from the agency would comment.
A Kamloops city official says the city has no record of Angels After Dark having a business license and without one the agency would be operating illegally.
