THE NEW DAILY - Mar 1 - SeekingArrangement claims its Australian membership is growing exponentially and that it has 154,537 people signed up. “These types of websites are of concern because they may breach the law and they may also place people in dangerous situations,” South Australia Police said in a statement. In Victoria escorts must be registered, and in South Australia it is illegal to pay someone for sex. SeekingArrangement spokeswoman Brook Urick denied the website was used for illegal purposes. “There’s not really an exchange of money for sex, it’s about building a relationship. At least two violent crimes in the US had been linked to arrangements made on the website. Alix Tichelman, 27, was charged with killing Google executive Forrest Hayes in November 2013.
