Phan Thi Thu Thuy, a resident of Ward 4, District 10, Ho Chi Minh City, was seized on Wednesday at a hotel room in Hanoi when she was preparing to send 9 women to China, police in Hoang Mai District reported.
Thuy would be prosecuted on charges of women trafficking, police said.
Thuy told investigators that she had lied to her victims that she would give them secure jobs at a salary of VND2.8 million (US$134) per month in China while in fact would sell them when they arrived in the country.
She confessed that in December 2011 she successfully cheated and sold 4 women to China for money.
After investigating her previous record, the police have found that Quang Ninh Province Police Department has issued a nationwide warrant for the arrest of Thuy for the same offense.
The police in Hanoi and Quang Ninh are expanding their investigation to search for the four victims.
