A ladyboy posting on social media as a beautiful woman duped boys and handsome men into masturbating on webcam, and then sold the porn clips on Twitter.

Crime Suppression Division police apprehended Phoomraphee “Phee’’ Nakwichit, 20, at a house in tambon Bang Chalong, Bang Phli district, on Thursday.

The arrest followed a complaint by a boy's mother that someone had posted porn photos and video clips of her son on a Twitter account and was selling them, Pol Col Arun Wachirasrisukanya, chief of the CSD sub-division 2, said.

The CSD set up a sting, posing as a customer and contacting the account holder, looking to buy some of the obscene material. The seller, who turned out to be Phoomraphee, set the price of porn pictures and video clips of two boys at 300 baht.  

After paying the money and tracking down the seller's address, CSD police obtained a warrant from Samut Prakan Provincial Court to search the suspect's house. Phoomraphee was detained in possession of an iPhone containing porn photos and video clips of several boys.

During police interrogation, the 20-year-old transgender admitted creating a Facebook account using a good-looking woman for her profile photo and then approaching schoolboys and handsome men online.   

She then persuaded them to masturbate on webcam, recorded it and sold the photos and clips to male customers on Twitter for 150-450 baht each. 

The money was all spent on daily expenses and supporting male partners, according to the suspect.

CSD police initially charged the suspect with disseminating and putting child pornography into a computer system and possessing child porn materials for sexual desire or with intent to sell. The suspect was handed over to Bang Phli police for legal action.
