From the Daily News:
A malevolent Queens madam forced young Korean women into a life of sex slavery in Long Island massage parlors after promising them jobs at nail salons, prosecutors charged Tuesday.
Jin Hua Cui, 44, allegedly roped in the new immigrants with help wanted ads in Korean language newspapers, Suffolk County District Attorney Thomas Spota said.
"Women would respond thinking that they were going to work at a nail salon. She then forced them into prostitution through threats of violence, intimidation and embarassment," Spota said.
"If they did not cooperate she would reveal to their family, friends and members of the community in Flushing that they were working as prostitutes and threaten to have Chinese gangs kill them," he said.
The women were driven every morning to massage parlors in Huntington Station and Hicksville and forced to have sex for between $60 and $80, authorities said.
A sign in the window of the Huntington Station locale advertised a "Stimulus Plan," and "Asian Bodywork."
The johns were solicited with ads on Craigslist.
Cui allegedly pocketed the fees, leaving the women only whatever the men left as tips.
Detectives executing a search warrant at Cui's sprawling, million-dollar home in Flushing found $20,00 in cash, and thousands of condoms.
