    SINGAPORE: The suspected operators of vice website Laksaboy were arrested on Thursday in a series of raids that netted 21 people islandwide, police said in a news release on Friday (Jul 21).
    The Laksaboy website hosted 22 banners believed to be owned by different vice syndicates, police said. The banners featured female escorts of various nationalities advertising sexual services online.
    In addition to the website, two vice syndicates were crippled in the Criminal Investigation Department (CID)'s 12-hour anti-vice operation on Thursday.

    Officers raided multiple locations islandwide, including Havelock Road, Marine Parade, Whampoa Road, Cairnhill, Lavender Road and Balestier Road.
    Five men and 16 women, aged between 22 and 57, were arrested for their suspected involvement in advertising the sexual services of female escorts online.
    Twenty-six mobile phones, eight laptops, condoms and related documents were also seized.

    A 29-year-old man will be charged on Saturday. Investigations against the other suspects are ongoing.
    Anyone who knowingly lives on the earnings of prostitutes faces up to five years' jail and a fine of up to S$10,000.
    A person convicted of operating communication services offering sex can face up to three years' jail and/or a fine of up to S$3,000.

    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.

    Man suspected of involvement in multinational online vice ring charged

    A man suspected of involvement in an online vice ring was charged in court on Saturday (July 22) morning.

    Saw Yan Long, 29, was charged for an offence under the Women's Charter for living on part of the earnings of a 39-year-old Thai national between June 29 and July 19.

    Saw is suspected of involvement in a multinational online vice ring.

    On Thursday, the police netted Saw and 20 others - comprising four men and 16 women aged between 22 and 57 - in a series of raids for their involvement in vice website Laksaboy.

    The raids also saw a crackdown on two vice syndicates.

    The website hosted 22 banners believed to be owned by different vice syndicates, which featured female escorts of various nationalities advertising sexual services online.

    Raids were conducted at multiple locations islandwide, including Havelock Road, Marine Parade, Whampoa Road, Cairnhill, Lavender Road and Balestier Road.

    Twenty-six mobile phones, eight laptops, condoms and related documents were seized for investigations.


    Investigation against the others nabbed on Thursday is ongoing. The case will be heard again in court on July 28.

    Any person convicted of knowingly living on the earning of prostitutes could be jailed up to five years and fined up to $10,000.

    A person convicted of operating communication services offering sexual services in return for payment could be jailed up to three years and/or fined up to $3,000.
