There is no vice on this website. I don't even allow porn.
I always thought Laksaboy was a clone of sammy boy. Don't they have a forum section too that duplicates this one? I don't know how they can be busted, they must have used servers in other countries.

Follow the money.
When they got advertisers....the money paid will eventually end up with the site owners.
Usually that's how all criminals get busted. They are the ones at end of the money trail.

What surprised me the most is that the operators are in Singapore and not based overseas. That is openly asking for the police to catch you.

I have a friend who earns a good living as a middle-ranked civil servant and he considered getting into the trade. Him and his potential business partner gave up on the idea however, when they measured the potential earnings vs income lost due to jail time and fines.
