Filipina chat rooms
There have been many reports on adults from around the world who pay to watch Filipino children being sexually abused.
Children are forced to perform on-demand acts guided by the pedophiles, and are often paid little money in return, while the criminals behind this crime make big bucks.
In the recent years, with the evolution of technology and the increasing access of people to the internet all around the world, the sexual exploitation industry has also changed its business to become more digital.
But they were not able to get anything despite sending several amounts of money through Western Union.
A BBC investigation exposed cybersex dens where children were abused, and how these were becoming popular in the south of Philippines.
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”.
The criminals behind cybersex dens use internet chatrooms to find clients.
Pedophiles are able to pay through methods that protect their anonymity, like Bitcoin, making it harder for authorities to keep a track on the criminals behind it.
