Online ads offer free rent in exchange for sex

March 18, 2010
There are numerous complaints against advertisements offering free rent in the Richmond area. They're for women and in most cases the men posting them flat out say they want companionship and sex.
     The ads are on craigslist and have gotten the attention of an advocacy group claiming they discriminate on several accounts including gender and race!
     The Housing Opportunities Made Equal of Virginia has filed 20 complaints with the Department of Housing and Urban Development.
