LONDON -- A London welfare mom pleaded guilty to two counts of luring after using an online ad to try to get inexperienced teenage girls for her sexual massage business.

Anxious to make fast money, Katrina Finnamore, 24, advertised on the Internet website kijiji, hoping to entice young girls to sign up.

In an e-mail to a 16-year-old who asked about the job, Finnamore said her business plan was to set up in a motel with an assistant and provide exotic full body massages and "sexual extras" if requested.

The teen told her mother, who called police. An officer posing as another 16-year-old contacted Finnamore and asked about the job. She told the officer the work would be at her house, the Super 7 motel or at clients' homes. Massages would be $80, but more if "extras" were requested.

"We can make some serious money, hon," Finnamore wrote, adding the dress code would be a shirt showing cleavage, or a see-through top, nice underwear or a thong.
