Online vice-ring pimp who made $1m in profits over 5 years convicted of vice offences

SINGAPORE – A 38-year-old online vice-ring pimp who received nearly $2.6 million in revenue and earned a profit of about $1 million over five years was convicted of various offences on Monday, in one of the largest online vice-ring cases.

Chew Tiong Wei pleaded guilty to 28 charges in all, with another 73 charges to be taken into consideration during his sentencing on Jan 13.

From 2007 till 2008, Chew earned somewhere between $20,000 and $30,000 by acting as a middleman between the prostitutes and their customers, taking a 40 per cent cut of the escorts’ earnings.

In January 2010, due to increasing profits, Chew created his own website for his illicit business. He registered his agency, Prestige Talents Management, with the Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority, as a sole-proprietorship providing “social escort services”.

He paid $8,000 to a company to design a logo and set up a website for his business. He also paid $12,000 to another company to set up a customised database system, based on SMS messages he sent and received, for his vice business.

In 2012, Chew also got the digital company he had earlier engaged to create another website for his business.

Based on the database system’s records, Chew received a revenue of over $2.5 million between January 2010 and December 2014. After deducting the payment to the escorts and operating expenses, he earned just over $1 million during the five-year period.

On-line Singaporean pimp who raked in millions convicted of various offences

SINGAPORE, Dec 7, 2015:

A pimp who received nearly S$2.6 million (RM7.8 million) in revenue and earned a profit of about S$1 million (RM3 million) over five years was convicted of various offences on Monday.

Chew Tiong Wei, 38, was said to be involved in one of the largest online vice-ring cases. He pleaded guilty to 28 charges in all, with 73 charges to be taken into consideration during his sentencing on Jan 13, according to a report in the Straits Times.

Chew’s vice-ring involved at least 22 prostitutes, 11 of whom were below 18 at the time of the offences while the youngest was 15.

He would also engage in sex with the females who were under 18 years old before prostituting them. Chew’s reason was that they needed to get used to the “whole feel” of dealing with customers, and he would also provide pointers and feedback on their sexual performance.

A district court heard that Chew first set up his vice business in mid 2007, and operated until he was arrested by anti-vice police in his Golden Landmark office in December last year, the report added.

The prices of the girls ranged from S$200 to S$1,000 (RM300 – RM3,000), the Straits Times report said.

Man had sex with underage girls, then made them prostitutes

Some of the girls who applied for a job at his social escort agency were as young as 15 years old.

But that didn’t stop him from using them to provide sexual services to men.

Chew Tiong Wei also had sex with some of them because he wanted to “try” them out before hiring them.

A 17-year-old girl whom Chew had sex with went on to make about $20,000 for him in about a year.

The university undergraduate slept with about 50 men, charging them $400 to $1,000 each. As with his other girls, Chew took 40 per cent of her takings as his cut.

His other “social escorts” were not as lucrative, but Chew still earned $1.047 million from at least 19 prostitutes from 2007 until last year, when the law finally caught up with him.

He was arrested by the police at his Victoria Street office last December following a tip-off.
