Girls Gone Wild says Craigslist ad is fake

Girls Gone Wild has said that an advertisement posted on Craigslist, claiming to be hosting auditions for Girls Gone Wild, was not posted by their company.

The advertisement surfaced on Craigslist for the fake "Girl's Gone Wild" coming to Seattle to recruit girls for a new video called "Getting Wet in Seattle."

The Craigslist ad reads:

We're looking for the HOTTEST, CRAZIEST, WILDEST and WETTEST girls in Seattle, ages 18-26 to fill up our dvd.

We have most of our premier spots filled, but we have a LOT of fun 5-10min spots left available for the taking.

Compensation varies, but starts at a minimum of $5,000 for 5 minutes of finished video, and more as the time increases.

"We are not doing any casting in Seattle in the near future," said Landon Gale-George, the promotions manager for Girls Gone Wild.

Abby, owner of Your Party Girls and local stripper-porn actress, had advice for girls considering an audition: "Ask a lot of questions and if people are evasive and hesitant to answer, think twice. Follow your heart and follow your sexual freedom."

False advertisements are not uncommon on Craigslist and similar websites. Cases of violent attacks, the selling of stolen merchandise, and scams of a false apartment rentals are among those false ads that have arisen in recent months.

Craigslist does not involve itself in any transactions, but does offer tips on safety and how to avoid scam and fraud.
