ORLANDOSENTINEL.COM reported….Partrick Minga admits he planned ‘sex tours’ with girls in Ecuador
A former Florida resident admitted in Orlando federal court Wednesday that he operated a prostitution business in Ecuador and coordinated “tours” for Americans to have sex with girls. Federal agents in Central Florida began investigating Patrick Minga in August, when they spotted his Craigslist ad offering “sex tours” in Ecuador, court records said. “We have the best females from Colombia to Ecuador,” the ad stated. “Lodging, food and unlimited females for $1,395 for 7 days.”

An undercover agent responded to the ad via email, and throughout a series of conversations, told Minga that he and a small group of men wanted to have sex with girls. According to his plea agreement, Minga told the agent he could arrange the sex trip in San Jose de Minas

I was in the collection agency business since 1986. I did commentary speaking and helped write admendments for the American Collectors Association. I shifted in a positive direction in 1996 purchasing collection debt portfolios. By doing that I could purge debts and start helping people legitmately raise credit scores. In 2008 right before the economic crash I sold my company and moved to my wife’s country of Ecuador. It was a wise decision. I opened a real estate company, built a retirement community here and developing commercial real estate to help new business owners achieve there goals at a low cost. The American Embassy in Quito had ther annual meeting voted me the Honorary Warden. They anticipate a large quantity of baby boomers retiring here in the next 4 years. There are 11,000 Retired Americans here in Ecuador as of 2010. wwww.worldwidediscountvacation.com
