A Kamloops escort service denies that it is recruiting underage escorts through Facebook.

A 17-year-old girl claimed last week that Angels After Dark contacted her privately through the social networking site inviting her join the service. She went public in a story that made national news to warn other girls about the recruitment tactics.
We tried contacting the owners but weren't the only ones—the voicemail box is full. On its site, it didn't deny contacting underage girls but is reviewing its social media policy.

"We maintain that we do not recruit or hire underaged persons. It is quite unfortunate that our actions on Facebook has lead to these serious allegations," the site says. "Being an adult services oriented business, it is not enough to follow Facebook's and other social media's acceptable use policy…. We will make changes to ensure that this situation does not happen again."

While it claims to have no interest in minors, it appears to want to get close to it. Of three 'models' on the site, two claim to be 18 years old and one claims to be 19. It also posted an ad seeking full-time and part-time positions.
