    Default Camcontacts just fired all USA hosts, citing SESTA

    Well they just fired all hosts in USA. It wasn't a big egg for me but really hate losing that side money

    I have to admit I'm totally shocked. I really didn't think SESTA would affect me much personally. Now I'm realizing just how fragile my sources of money really are.

    Interestingly enough, I quit working there last year. Because they wouldn't issue checks anymore or have direct deposit.. and the pittance of money wasn't worth it anymore so I asked them to close my account.

    Yeah me too. Trying not to freak out, wondering who's going to fire me next. Fortunately for me it wasn't a huge source but it was so convenient because I got my pay thorough Boleynmodels.

    I feel like I'm living in the beginning stages of a Handmaid's Tale scenario! I'm floored.
    Getting a little too close to home now and feeling helpless to do anything to stop it.

    So basically, international companies are getting rid of us, but US companies are currently safe. And how long will US companies still be able to keep us safe?

    It's a great time to consider dual citizenship, I guess. Or expanding to vanilla industries.

    Did they send out a notice, or did they just close your account.

    Closed without any notice. I woke up this morning to find my accounts "unapproved" and blocked from posting anything in their forum (I had two profiles, one vanilla and one domme) and that message I quoted in my inbox. I was online day before yesterday working there with no issues.

    I'm sure they gave me no notice so that I could not inform my customers of where to find me.

    For some of these non-US sites, this is just an excuse to do things they always wanted to do. For Adultwork, its them finally having an excuse to go ahead with being blatantly racist/nationalist. For CamContacts, I think their difficulties in paying US models and the infrastructure needed to do so caught up to them. Other than some other minor players on Xbiz hiding under their blankets and telling everyone the sky is falling, almost all the real heavy hitters (SM, MFC, CB) have the legal muscle to worry a lot less about these things.

    The only thing these silly over-reactions are doing is creating business opportunities for everyone else.

    For us, CC made up such a minuscule part of our portfolio that we won't miss them. We'll keep servicing the non-US accounts under our studio there for as long as we're allowed and so far we haven't been given any notice of anything.

    About Adultwork. This. I’ve avoided speaking my mind on this and you just did it for me. After the way they closed my account (before SESTA) and treated me afterward when I very politely tried to figure out what was going on and wtf a “group” was which I was apparently in with UK models and wasn’t allowed to be anymore, I was not surprised at all by them taking the opportunity to drop US models.

    I had been on there since 2003 and they used to offer more to us USA camgirls.. They had a Bank of America US account to pay checks.. t hen they quit that.. then you could only get paid with a uk check.. and then they stopped offering checks altogether.. and the traffic declined hugely over the years... so it seems inevitable they would do this.. I frankly think they are going under.. like IFRIENDS..lol

    Yep, same happened with Adult Work. Back up your income ladies, more eggs, more baskets and watch out for non-US companies. I'm noticing they just don't want to deal with the headaches. Sorry about the loss, Laurie.

    Well, aw and cc arent american, so they couldnt care less abt americans (frankly disgusting), the thing is now look for more american sites that are following the rules with sesta and fosta as it seems all other sites (non US) are not wanting to deal with the issue at all.

    Its going to be a process for American-based sites as well...just not the "everyone PANIC!!!" thing some people seem to be doing. We need to go through our own policies with a fine tooth comb and a lawyer to see how we can SESTA-proof our own business (we already did some temporary measures). It may cause a little pain here or there, but overall it means the strong survive.
