Jiang used We Chat to establish a group named "Shenzhen entertainment circle" with two other suspects surnamed Zhang and Gu.
They make use of the convenience of some mobile social applications in order to escape the eyes of the police," Tao Ran, a procurator of the People's Procuratorate of Shenzhen said."However, organizing, introducing and providing a venue for prostitution activities are all illegal offences.
Despite the fact that the Internet has made it challenging for police to crack down on prostitution, the five who were arrested in May shows that the Internet is not a safe haven," he added, Yangcheng Evening Post reported.
The information included the planned location of the sex, prices, the sex worker's appearance, the worker's popularity and customer's requirements.
Some women would even fly to other countries to provide sexual services after sealing a deal.
The photographers would then edit their pictures with computer software.
Some companies even helped them create detailed fake biographies and contact some Web companies to spread the information online.As a result, when johns tried to search for them online, they would see comprehensive profiles claiming that the women were top models and popular actresses, along with convincingly professional pictures.The sex workers were then able to charge their customers thousands of yuan more than they could otherwise.Whoever introduced the customer to the sex worker was paid referral fees, as sex workers would pay the money to the referrer through We Chat's payment function.If a sex worker tried to evade the fee, her personal information and behavior would be posted on the group chat so that other members would also refuse to do business with her. Sex workers who wanted to be paid better would contact photographers in the group to help them take professional-looking, sexy pictures.The profiles claim that she was once the winner of a high-profile beauty pageant and has modeled for several skincare and food companies.
