The centres’ profile: This screen shot shows the pictures of a massage centre in the Klang Valley while the image above shows the variety of masseuse available at a reflexology centre in Bandar Puteri Puchong.
PIMPS are utilising apps that provide free texting, to promote sexual services.
One of them employs a function that allows mobile phone and tablet users to look for people to interact with. You can also choose to interact with specific genders.
A resident who only wants to be identified as Au, said those offering sexual services preyed on men with profile status such as “Lonely” and “Bored”.
He said these operators had approached some of his acquaintances.
He claimed the women were from neighbouring countries such as Vietnam.
He also claimed that despite many shops being closed at night, there were tell-tale signs such as the number of cars parked in the area where the activities took place, indicating that many were seeking the services offered in these premises.
Following the claims, StarMetro went to Bandar Puteri Puchong to check the situation.
Just mere seconds after arriving there and upon logging into the location-based service, we received a message from someone who started the conversation with “Do you want to have a good time tonight?”.
We were assured that it would be “worth the price”.
The respondent stated that it would cost RM200 per hour and that both female and male were available.
We also looked at other users in the vicinity.
One of the users was a reflexology centre with a photo album that featured foreign women dressed in revealing clothes and posing provocatively.
Also included were details of these women such as age, country of origin, height and bust size.
In the case of the reflexology centre, it was learnt that many of the girls came from Vietnam.
StarMetro discovered that while advertised as a “sensual” massage place, the manager/pimp outlined two one-hour “packages,” with the more expensive version being “full-service, body-to-body” massage.
The establishment itself comprises eight rooms, although these are mainly dimly lit partitions with a curtain covering the entrance for privacy. In the waiting area, about 10 girls are paraded for prospective clients to view.
The manager/pimp also proudly mentioned that more girls would be coming from Laos, which he added were ang pai (red label = special or in-demand).
One girl, who called herself A Tin, 20, spoke in heavily accented Mandarin and Cantonese, telling us that she was from Ho Chi Minh City and had been in Malaysia for “some weeks”.
Interviews with a couple of clients revealed that after selecting a girl, she would strip and perform a light massage lasting for about 15 to 20 minutes before proceeding to have protected sex with the clients.
The manager/pimp, named “S”, said the establishment was usually open from 1pm every day and closes at 3am. At the time of conversation, he even produced cards for clients to contact them for future visits.
When contacted, Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) deputy public prosecutor Ahmad Zakhi Mohd Daud said the public could lodge a complaint with MCMC and an investigation would then be carried out.
“If found guilty, the culprit can be charged under the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998, which carries the maximum RM50,000 fine and a year’s imprisonment if convicted,” he said.
