Kuala Lumpur, January 12 (ANI): The current credit crunch has apparently sparked a "price war" amongst prostitution syndicates after many decided to offer "crazy" discounts in Kuala Lumpur.
According to Harian Metro, women were being offered at heavy discounts for the "crazy promotion for massage and services".
The tabloid alleged to have received "crazy promotion" pamphlets from groups operating from spas, offering as much as 40 percent discount.
A 45-minute session was being offered for about RM158 to RM188, as compared to the previous price bracket of RM200 to RM250.
The Star Online reported that Alex, a "spa worker", revealed the discounts were essential since the client number had taken a dip following the recession.
He further alleged that only a few spas had been offering such services, but "now even hotels are promoting these women." (ANI)
