How can the State of Illinois control on-line services whose principal offices are probably not located in Illinois? But what about those sites like Craigslist. First, dating sites would have to provide a safety awareness notification that lists and describes safety measures to make users of the site more aware of safe dating practices. The legislation gives three notification examples that might be used the legislation does not indicate where on the site safety awareness notices must be placed :. The centerpiece of the legislation, however, is the requirement that sites let their Illinois members know if the site conducts criminal background checks on individuals before they are allowed to become members of the site. If an on-line dating service does not conduct criminal background searches as a matter of course, it must notify Illinois members of that fact. The House bill would require the Illinois Attorney General to adopt rules and regulations meant to carry out the requirements of the law. Both bills would make it an unlawful practice under the Illinois Consumer Fraud and Deceptive Business Practices Act for an on-line dating service to make a false claim that it conducts background searches. There is some opposition to these bills. Stop communicating with anyone who pressures you for personal or financial information or attempts in any way to trick you into revealing it.
