The Hanoi police have arrested the operators of five pornographic websites that scored millions of hits and raked in annual profits that were hundreds of times their investment.
Four of them are college students in the capital and nearby provinces.
Nguyen Cong Thang, a 20-year-old student from the north central province of Nghe An, bought choigameonline.com, which looks like a place for playing online games, for VND200,000 (US$9) in July last year, Tuoi Tre newspaper reported.
He proceeded to share porn movies he downloaded from foreign websites on the site, the newspaper said.
His store of more than 1,000 films received 700,000 hits and earned more than VND40 million ($1,882) in advertising until it was busted in police raids that began last July.
Vu Van Quyen, a computing student, paid VND100,000 ($4.71) for website xsuong in October last year and loaded around 165 adult movies on it to draw advertisers.
The website earned around VND38 million ($1,790) and got nearly nine million hits until it too was busted recently.
Two other students, Hanoian Ta Quoc Dat, 18, and Ta Huu Nam, 20, from neighboring Thai Binh Province, ran websites wapvietvip.sextgem, videosextructuyen, and xemsexonline that had hundreds of sex movies.
Nguyen Van Dong, 22, of Hanoi, operated pexinh since February 2012 with 458 porn movies.
The police have seized some 2,000 movies and thousands of images from the website, and are investigating further.
Spreading pornographic content in Vietnam is punishable by up to 15 years in jail.
