Children’s underwear, toddler shoes, cameras, bondage cuffs, fetish ropes, meth pipes and stacks of hard drives and photo albums cluttered the stuffy, two-bedroom townhouse. ” from the laptop on his bed, the Philippines National Bureau of Investigation smashed their way into his cybersex den.“Why is everyone asking about children coming into my house?” said Deakin, 53, his wrists bound with a zip tie.(Business names in this case are being withheld because of the ongoing investigation.) Records in Deakin’s townhouse included debit cards for money transfer services, including Smart Money and Payoneer.
Western Union, Pay Pal and others have reported concerns in the past.The vans passed Fields Avenue, a notorious street lined with bars, strip clubs and massage parlors; shops advertise Viagra and lingerie-clad women beckon customers.When they reached Deakin’s apartment, a small cadre went to his door.“We will really catch them, with the help of our foreign counterparts.We will really put them in jail and they will die in jail.” Bare-chested and slick with sweat, his breath sour and glasses foggy, Deakin watched agents — including FBI computer analysts — crouch on his bed over open computers, rushing to find and preserve hidden files.
