The site allows users to post ads for 'escorts' and investigators say many of the ads are actually for underage girls.

The FBI seized the website because it was allegedly being used to facilitate crime. The FBI has done this before with other sex trafficking websites and online pharmacies.

There are 17 victims named in the documents who are both adults and children who say they were forced into sex trafficking.

The DOJ says the site has earned $500 million in revenue from prostitution since it was created.
