FB photos illegally downloaded for call girl service

A SYNDICATE has been using photographs of pretty girls downloaded from their Facebook pages to snare men looking for prostitutes, Sin Chew Daily reported.

It reported that the syndicate would download the photographs of the Asian girls and upload them on its own page that offered call girl services.

The tactic was revealed by two men who banked in RM330 each into an account but later realised they had been cheated when the girls failed to show up.

However, they did not report the matter to police.

According to the daily, the syndicate only accepted new customers.

They charged prices lower than the “market price”.

Known only as Lee, the 20-year-old victim said a customer had cheated him of RM18,000 worth of phones and his employer wanted him to account for it by taking the loan.

His employer then deducted RM500 from his monthly salary of about RM2,000 to pay the loan shark.

The report said Lee sought the help of MCA Public Service and Complaints Department head Datuk Seri Michael Chong, who then negotiated with the employer for Lee to only pay half the losses.
