Police discovered the activity of Asian prostitutes who promote immoral services through an app to attract customers along with the price of each service they offer. These women arrived in Kuwait as masseuses, but they posted their phone numbers on an application with their nude images, and asked those who wish to contact them to use "hi" as a code word. As soon the code reaches the girl's phone, the client receives a price list: "KD 30 for one shot, KD 60 for one hour". The girl then sends more photos of her along with the address. The women promote their activities publicly, which raises questions on the influence they rely on and why they are not afraid of legal action. Vice detectives continue fighting such illicit activities.
