It’s about Pimps, human trafficking, criminals that move the porn industry from Manila area to the Provinces bringing more corruption and criminal activity. And those proud to be their friends? They too will have their wall of shame soon...

"CIDG (Criminal Investigation and Detection Group in the Philippines)are a law until themselves. They are a bit like the yanks home grown texas rangers.CIDG are very active here in CDO right now and looking to bust as many bars as they can. They even busted the bar of the cousin of the vice Mayor who will be back to Mayor next year. The CIDG do not care who you are or think you are, that goes for local as well as foreigners.As for foreigners accompanying them this comes as no surprise the same happens in Angeles. The foreigners are the ones who may have given them the reasons for the bust and may get a kick back from the pay off.  


The foreigners will be the more internet savvy and it will come as no surprise to me that they used the internet to assist in their targeting of the bars. After all the reviews are pretty explicit covering bar fines and their costs. There is a web site out there that lists most of the Cebu bars and the costs of the bar fines etc for each bar....DOH!!!!!! not so much a crumb trail but an open invitation!! Take care, one day it will be the guests who are targeted as they will be seen as part of the human trafficking excuse made for such busts".

Thanks for the invitation Mike! Accepted...
 Hello again!
 Allow me first to introduce myself and take out the "mystery" of the "whoever I am" as your friends Alan and Daisy Cline call me in their blog. You all know who am I, but for some reason you prefer to look as a confused, a convenient status to avoid responding to embarrassing questions. Right Alan? No mail sent to my address returned undeliverable, I did not send you a mail, I posted a comment on your blog but you censored it. Instead, you replied to some body else's comment... I'll come back on this later. 

My name Is Evan Iliadis. Do you really need more? No. Who doesn't know Evan in the Philippines...It's now more than two years he crusades, 29 thousand IPs from around the world  have visited his 4 blogs and received HTML formatted  mails...Let's not waist time and bandwidth on unnecessary introductions, let's get started,  straight to the point.
Yes, I am the kind of these foreigners you mentioned above, the ones who accompanied the investigators on the raid. I wish I was there myself, to film the whole thing and inform the world that pimps are having hard times in the Philippines. As to whether or not (Mike's words) are sharing the payoff, that's great news! Hallelujah! Praise the Lord! From your keyboard Mike to God's computer!! I hope is true.! Because payola after payola, "election" taxes here, "donations and discount" there, will help  bankrupt the owners of brothels. 
Mike Mountstephen, owner of the Spooks bar in Cagayan De Oro, I am here today to accompany my readers to a journey inside this obscured, underground world that you are part of, this world that contributes to the aggravation of  an already corrupted system, that 50 years of Hollywood occupation,  bears a great part of responsibility, should we believe the author of the book  "In  our  image" Stanley Karnow. 
Since you systematically avoid to introduce yourself by first and last name, I will respect your desire to be called Mike, or Mike at Spooks, or Mike "official owner of the bar spooks". Do you mind if I add also "Mike the pimp"? Or Mike the barfine dealer?

Browsing your statements on various discussion boards most of the kind like this one,
any one may discover the true nature of your business leaving us with no doubt whatsoever that Spook's income does not derive from selling beer and food but for selling girls to the customers and profiting from the sale. In fact, what else you were trying to sell on this forums? They (Members) are all living outside Cagayan De Oro, they may come to your place for a nice body paying reasonable barfine but certainly not just to have a drink!...
Readers, below is a screen shot of an excerpt of the a topic I will direct you shortly. Is a Q&A dialog between Mike and a moderator of the forum. Click to enlarge it please
  
"Self employed"? You have called them also "independent contractors"elsewhere in your 
postings as we'll see later as we move on. Now, I understand  what the terms above are and why Mike is using them. I'll explain later. But, please, help me figure out what the DOT (Department Of Tourism) registered tour guides are doing at Spooks? I know my friend Gordon Elletson and some others claim I am a stupid frog, but even an appeal to my other culture (Greek) that -according to Gordon- is better, did not help. Quel malheur mes amies... But thanks to this guy his forum name is "english" he clarified it for us! Thanks for your help english!! I knew english are allways smarter than French and Greeks and you proved it once again body... Here is the answer:
The discussion thread above can be read in its entirety here. 

  
That's what it is folks! you must read between the lines lol!! Now I got it!! The registered DOT guides are the "girls" that taking the guests for a tour to the sights!... which sights? you mean the sites...Like the VIP rooms of course!
How do i know that?  Now that we have decoded  the  Davinci Code and learned how to read between the lines, everything is easy. In fact, not always need to bother with codes, interpretations of what's in the lines and in between. As far as bar fines and VIP rooms things are clear. The excerpt of the review below show the publishing date : 08/02/2008.

After Mike smelled the dead rat in his backyard and the Philippines penal code closing in, the "reviewer" came back in January 12th 2010 and changed all that. Now it says that the new Mamasan said Spooks never offered bar fines, but he also writes "he saw Lots of ladies must have been over 30 of them, all shapes and sizes. Was surprised that they do not accept barfines as earlier posts has this itemized. The mamsan I spoke to told me that they never offer bar fines, the girls are free to go with a customer if they wish". There we go friends! Spooks in avant-garde of the innovation trend! Du jamais vue!! Spooks has the annual sale going on! The girls are now free of bar fine folks!! Sex tourists around the Philippines, it's now or never! all flying to CDO ! 

So, you are telling us Mike you didn't know the existence of the first review? Readers, here is what he has done. The link I'll direct you shortly shows first the new review, scrolling the window you'll see the old one. Click here to read it but don't believe a dumb shit of this review that no bar fines are collected .
 February 4th 2010. Mike Mountstephen ordered the "reviewer" to erase the old comments. The link above will now bring you to the one that was erased. 
You will have the opportunity to read more than that concerning barfines, human trafficking that is, since all statements he has made on various discussion  boards have been saved. 
************* 
A bar fine is the payment made by customer to the operators of a particularly hostess bars or go-go bars that allows a dancer or hostess or some other employee of that bar to leave work early, usually in order to accompany the customer outside the bar back to his hotel room. A bar fine may also be required in order to take the employee to a more secluded part of the same establishment, such as a short-time room. (Spooks has KTV short time rooms at 3000 pesos)
This practice is common in in South-east Asian countries such as Thailand and the Philippines. The bar fine amount and whether sexual services are included in the bar fine or have to be negotiated separately are both subject to local custom.
 A pimp is an agent for prostitutes who lives off their earnings. Pimping is illegal in most countries, in the Philippines is subject to criminal charges under the Penal code article #341  The majority of pimps are men. The pimp-prostitute relationship can be abusive, with the pimp using psychological intimidation, manipulation and physical force to control the woman or women he sends out to work. 
Foreigners in the Philippines  owners of whorehouse most of the time disguised in regular Restaurant-bars,  are careful not directly be involved on the "management" of the "entertainers" designating  a local  person to take care of that, called Mamasan, is a woman who works in a supervisory role, usually the wife or most common a trusted and loyal companion girlfriend.  
During the long hours I spent traveling inside the pimps' world in the forums where Mike owner of Spooks bar uses to talk about anything related to this industry, in a multifaceted mood that shows more concern than optimism, revealing also his true feelings about the"girls" that all they did wrong to him, is enrich him. So here come the nominations. 
The "girls" often called by the public at large whores, prostitutes, call girls, putas, entertainers, dancers, street girl and a "peripateticienne" in a nicer waynames that are all within a human description, and the place practicing is usually called the street, a whore house, a brothel, a bar fine bar.
But Mike has came up with a new pimp's dictionary where the working place is now called a stable. What's in a stable? Horses of course.. That's how the pimp considers the girls!Well, make your own opinion reading the screen shots below then I'll direct you to the forum where the statements were made. 
to see the original-complete statement please click here

And there is this guy here who's asking him to put pics of his stable: (click to enlarge please)


Click here to read  Mike's response, take a look also how this "barhopper" named Fallen has to say on how they are doping "the entertainers" to performer better". . It's in the same page.




 Mike replied by inviting this animal to his...stable. 
Have fun!...

PROTECTION, BRIBES,COMPLAISANT MAYORS AND NEWS REPORTERS.OH! AND SOME RELIGIOUS PEOPLE.....


Reading Mike Mountstephen comments as I am about to upload all 95 comments he has made in the forums  remind me a cheap version of the Sicily imported mafia operating in Europe and the US. Cheap in the sense that the Philippines have never been a refuge to notorious mafiosi controlling every single illegal activity, be in gambling, large scale extortion, drug production and sale to name a few. It is mostly controlled by the local gang, larger "business" may appeal to neighboring countries bands for financing to expand. With the exception of one activity I didn't mention above. The prostitution industry where foreigners indisputably excel, if not in numbers for sure in "sales receipts". 

How this became possible? Just by the right marketing using the internet. Simple as that. First, spread the word that our foreigners' owned brothels are clean, free of scams and rip-offs as opposed those owned by locals that are unsafe and dirty. They spread the word that tourism in the  Philippines is synonymous to any kind of sexual denomination, taste, perversion and fantasy you have in your mind, this is it! These statements as propagated mostly- if not exclusively- through the internet have the sinister consequence of encouraging all kind of sexual perverts to visit, stay and abuse the legendary hospitality of the country.

So far, We used to see most of the foreigners' porn activities expanding in the Luzon and Cebu areas, being in line with their counterparts around the world that big cities are better for blending in the red lights zone under the privacy of doing these "special business" far from the indiscretion of the average inhabitant that may causes some problems. But all isn't "la vie en rose" on those areas according to this web site set up by the foreigners' pimps syndicate as a vengeance to discredit the Philippines police for hammering down the barfiners in Angeles. MikeMountstephen praised the authors of this site that I read carefully and haven't see anything, not even a small evidence to back up their claims against criminals cops and other government officials. Corrupted officials in the prostitution business are common in any country in the world, why should we expect the PI to be an exception? Pure blasphemes and vulgar defamers. The web site was  this. www.centralluzoncorruption.com. now closed.
 


Mike Mountstephen, you are looking for support and sympathy by portraying all pimps and brothel owners like you as the victims of unscrupulous government employees serving-according to you- a corrupted system. My comment to your remarks  is this: If that's true, you and your cohorts pimps in the country have largely contributed to this reputation, without bribing your unlawful business can't survive. What's the complain? Are you expecting the authorities to let go your crooked business by turning their eyes on the other side and ignore the law? To ignore the fact that you have abused the government using the Tourism accreditation seal they granted you in 2006 for a year only, as a restaurant and still using it to claim your "entertainers" are DOT accredited guides? What are they guiding? the bar fine clientele?

Reading your postings, I think I am "dealing" with an unstable person, flip-flops here and there, concerned in times, overly optimistic the next day, lambasting the PH police in Manila and the DIDG operations in CDO, at the same time you seem happy of Mayor's, vice Mayor's and the local press support, that personally and according to others living in CDO, may or may not be real. So? where is the truth? The fact that you have the support of 20 expats -all drunkards- holding fellowship meetings once a week and Daisy Cline her "philanthropic meetings"in your brothel doesn't shield you against prosecution.  They just create a facade to your"stable" (Sic! you are so creative lol!) in exchange of few free drinks.  We, editors of  the sexpat wall of shame don't buy this plot. We don't buy either your theory and new title you are giving to the girls you are exploiting calling "independent contractors"  
If they are independent contractors, then why would you be paying them anything?Why SSS and Phil Health payments?
 

Not even your close partner and supporter Paul Petrea believes it and he stated right here on the board below where you have posted to the same topic and page. For those who don't know Paul Petrea, click here to meet him. He's also the gorilla you see on the upper photo in the background holding a beer with his "virgin" girl friend as he once stated in a forum that you'll have the opportunity to read it soon and next to another notorious pimp Chris Bennetts now wanted by the PI authorities.
