Online shopping na may happy ending? Joy Belmonte seeks probe on link between e-commerce sites, prostitution

Quezon City Mayor Joy Belmonte has urged authorities to investigate the possibility of online prostitution rings using legitimate e-commerce websites as means to ply their illegal trade.

Belmonte issued the call after it was brought to her attention that racy photos of women now invade the testimonial section of a product, particularly women’s dresses and undergarments.

She said it was strange for these women to post photos of them wearing underwear and other revealing dresses as testimonial for a product.

“I smell something fishy here. Mukhang nakakita na naman ng bagong paraan ang mga sindikatong gamit ang mga lehitimong websites para maisulong ang kanilang ilegal na gawain,” said Belmonte.

She called on the Philippine National Police (PNP) to include this in its monitoring of social media sites while they look for quarantine violators.
