The children selling explicit videos on OnlyFans - BBC News
The subscription site OnlyFans is failing to prevent underage users from selling and appearing in explicit videos, a BBC investigation has found. Under-18s have used fake identification to set up accounts, and police say a 14-year-old used a grandmother's passport. The UK's most senior police officer for child protection also says children are being "exploited" on the platform. OnlyFans says its age verification systems go over and above regulatory requirements. The platform has more than a million "creators" who share video clips, photos and messages directly with subscribers for a monthly fee, while OnlyFans takes a 20% share of all payments.
