HOW IT ALL STARTED
I visited Macau in July 2009 and got lured into falling in love with a girl enslaved by Triad Godfather Luis Lui that worked at one of Luis' 50 Saunas in Macau called the Eighteen Sauna, which is located inside the Golden Dragon Casino in Macau. Three weeks later, I willingly gave the girl $4600 US Dollars as a gift as I said goodbye due to me starting to have strong feelings for her and not wanting to love somebody 8000 miles from home. This money was to allow her to return home to Vietnam. However, at the time, she told me she wasn't enslaved and that the $4600 was just money she owed people to repay getting her brother released from jail for killing somebody while driving his motorcycle drunk in Vietnam. I didn't care if it was true; I just wanted to help this poor girl that I was starting to love but also saying goodbye to at the same time. She cried and went into the bathroom for 10 minutes and then came out, threw the money on the floor, and walked out! I was stunned; I never saw any girl give me cash back, especially when I said goodbye. That was the first strategic move of many that was done to lure me over to Asia to ultimately take everything I had, including the son I had with her after moving there. This dark story happens all the time in Asia, but you won't find too many accounts of it because the enemy behind these scams is patient and calculating in ways never seen in the Western World. If you want to see pure evil, look no further than Luis Lui, #4 in power for the Macau Triads. The things I learned and experienced as I escaped the Macau Triads have led more than ten people to say it's a Hollywood movie, the only difference being that this is 100% true. I escaped several of the clever scams they executed against me that ranged from:
● Trying to get me to sleep with a Triad Boss's Wife so they could extort me
● Framing me as a drug smuggler by planting drugs on me in flight from Hong Kong to HCMC Vietnam
● Attempting to murder me when all previous scam attempts failed
Hong told me that in Vietnam, all of the Police are corrupt and that when somebody dies in a situation like drinking and driving, the accused will get arrested, but the reporting of the crime won't go into the system for at least 24 hours. After 24 hours, it is harder to bribe your way out because the Police are scared that the Government will find out and they'll lose their job and go to jail. The families of the victim know this too. Even though the victim's family is distraught, they figure it's better to have money than punishment for the accused because sending the culprit to jail won't bring back their child; so they quickly negotiate a deal between the families and the Police and the guilty person's family will pay off the victims and the corrupt Police and the whole thing will be recorded as an accident or as an unsolved crime with no suspects in the event it is a murder.
Before I go right into these scams in detail, let me first go back to the beginning in 2009 when I visited SE Asia for the first time, so you understand the history leading up to how I came into the crosshairs of this Secretive Criminal Empire.
I admittedly did the craziest thing any guy has ever done for love, which is moving to Vietnam to be with a girl that I thought would be the perfect girl aside from her apparent misgivings regarding her past. Before I tell you the story about the move that almost ended my life, let me tell you why I moved there and what attracted me to Asia and Asian Women in the first place.
I was always good at making money, good at losing it also, lol. I was always much too generous with women because money was just money; I could always make more after giving it away or spending it. I have since changed my viewpoint on that and don't give money away as I used to because I have a sweet little boy to worry about that only has me to rely on since his mother never had his best interest in mind.
Anyways, before I ended up in Vietnam, I was an Attorney in Los Angeles for ten years; with the final few years, I started to develop software and transitioned away from lawyering once that business started doing well. During my ten years' stay in Los Angeles "L.A." I went through two long-term relationships where I gave everything to those two women only to have them steal more and complain that they were owed six figures because I took them off the market for a few years each, whatever. Without boring you with the details of that, let's say that I had a pessimistic outlook as to where L.A. dating would lead me. I also got to a point where I completely lost faith in the legal system (due to a corrupt Judge that allowed admitted perjury to go unpunished because he was in cahoots with Plaintiff's Attorneys. I discovered this after hiring a private investigator only to be ignored by the regulatory agencies that police judicial corruption when I blew the whistle. This experience left me thinking our system is smoke and mirrors at best and that American women are a nightmare. I must say now that I was 100% wrong because I judged American Woman based on "L.A.," which is not representative of the typical American Woman but just representative of "L.A." … That said, I had a friend who always asked me to go to Macau for over a year and told me it was a guy amusement park with thousands of beautiful, submissive women that just loved Westerners and made you feel like no American woman ever could. At the time, I was going out on three dates a week with the same type of L.A. woman and was burned out; I figured this different experience might be the thing I needed to break the monotony.
If you haven't heard of Macau, it is a 1-hour Ferry Ride from Hong Kong and is the Las Vegas of Asia. It makes two times more gambling revenue than Vegas, and most Vegas Casino Brands have a casino in Macau, i.e., Wynn, Venetian. None of the American Casino brands have Saunas in the Casino. However, most of the Asian-owned Casinos also have a Sauna somewhere inside the Casino. You can go hang out all day and get every kind of body treatment you can think of in addition to getting your haircut, and finally, you can pick a girl from "Showtime" to take to a private room.
The Casino does not own the Saunas in each Casino. The Saunas are all owned by the Triads, who lease the space from the Casino. The businesses are not connected; they only occupy the same building. Many patrons don't realize that and feel secure in these Saunas since they are inside a multi-million-dollar Casino. I remember when I asked the front desk if they had any coupons for the Sauna and the Lady was quick to say that they have no affiliation with the Sauna as though I just accused her of a crime.
When you go to any Sauna in Macau, every 30 minutes to an hour (depending on the Sauna), a bell would ring, and the ladies doing the regular sauna services would all start shouting "Showtime, Showtime," where they coerce you towards a room blasting loud music. Once you enter the room, you will see over 100 beautiful girls wearing dresses with a number on them, and you can pick a girl by her number and go to a private room for an hour and do whatever.
Prostitution is legal in Macau and has been pretty much since The Portuguese colonized Macau in 1557. I was told by a friend (whom I now think was completely wrong) that prostitution is normal and not taboo in Asia and that the girls are very grateful that they can help their families with the money they make. At that time, I wasn't aware of the real dark substance behind this industry, and the human trafficking and advanced scams aspect were not even crossing my mind or apparent from what I observed while there initially. My naive assessment almost got me killed more times than once, and escaping Asia once the bottom-feeding underworld sunk their teeth in left me with a story that is a cross between "Catch Me if You Can" & "Constantine." Asia is different from the Western World; deception is mastered in ways the Western World is not akin to.
Before going further, let me say that I feel bad for visiting the Saunas in Macau now that I know that these girls are not thankful and happy like my friend led me to believe, but instead smiling to keep from being beaten if they don't. I am trying to make the wrong decisions I made right by fighting against the people that enslave these girls. Even though these girls scammed me, I am trying to help them because they have no choice. I haven't visited a Sauna since early 2010, even though I had plenty of opportunities in addition to the approval of my ex. The last five times I did go to a Sauna, I only got regular services like a massage and was just there to relax even though "Show Time" was one room over. Please keep that in mind before you decide to judge me. It takes courage to admit that I was even over there, let alone stand up to an evil organization like the Triads in Macau; so, try to remember that before throwing criticism my way.
