The reasons for participating are pretty much the same than in the case exposed before, the profits. It is true that many women around the world are forced to prostitution and are sexually abused.
Very few of these women are pretending to be innocent girls, but yet many foreigners still fall in their traps and promises of love.
At the age of 15, Angel began connecting with foreign men in chat rooms. “They told me ‘Angel, it’s really nice to chat with the foreign guys because you can earn money.’” For several hours every day, Angel is online with men from North America and Europe.
“They tell me that, ‘I will send you money if you show me your body, your naked body,’ and yes I will show it, and they will send me money.” The world he and his friends inhabit is the seedy collection of internet cafes, some of them with private cubicles, where teenagers can ‘perform’ on web-cams for foreign customers.
Neighbors of such places claimed at that time to be shocked about what was going on inside these dens, yet investigations throw that in one particular case at least 80 houses in the area were involved in the trade.
Parents take their children to perform in front of a webcam for foreigners, and get paid “easy money”.
