In August, the company’s Manhattan headquarters were raided by the FBI and NYPD. CEO Jeffrey Hurant and six others were arrested on suspicion of promoting interstate prostitution and money laundering. The company’s bank accounts containing millions of dollars were frozen and its website was seized by Homeland Security.
Now, the company is selling its office supplies and furniture on Craigslist in an effort to raise money to pay for its mounting legal fees.
“We are selling the contents of the former offices of rentboy.com,” the ad reads. “This sale has loads of goodies.”
Some of these “goodies” include glass desks, chairs, filing cabinets, and video monitors. Other items for sale include cables, software, books, magazines, artwork, lamps, a copy machine, and “a lot of special, one of a kind rentboy.com ephemera.”
“We are trying to raise funds for our legal defense,” the ad explains, “so please consider your purchases as going to a good cause.”
