What Is Human Trafficking?
Although the legal definition of human trafficking is complex, the simple meaning of it is not. It occurs when a person is induced by force, fraud or coercion to:
Work under the total or near-total control of another person or organization (slavery or involuntary servitude)
Forced lớn pay off a loan by working instead of paying money, for an agreed-upon or unclear period of time (debt bondage) or even without an agreement as lớn the timeframe (peonage)
Perform a sex act for money or anything of value (if under 18, force, fraud or coercion is not required)
According to lớn U.S. Immigration & Customs Enforcement, although many people think of the sex trade when they think of human trafficking, this crime also occurs in such labor situations as:
Labor in a prison-like factory
Migrant agricultural work.
In addition, with respect khổng lồ labor situations, the initial agreement lớn travel or lớn perkhung work does not mean that the employer is later allowed to restrict a victim's freedom or use force or threats lớn obtain repayment.

Fraudrefers to intentionally distorting the truth in order to lớn get someone else (who relies on that version of the truth) to lớn surrender a legal right or give sầu up something valuable that belongs lớn them.
A Complex Crime
Human trafficking entangles victims in a nearly impenetrable website, for a number of reasons:
The victyên may not realize that he or she is imprisoned, because coercion is psychological (it may not be physical)
Victims are typically impoverished & financially dependent on their captors
Often the crime takes place in plain view-e.g. in a restaurant, worksite, or private home-and is not immediately apparent to observers
Victims can be exploited for labor, sex, or both, particularly in private homes.
Signs of Human Trafficking

Seems to lachồng concrete short- or long-term plans
Seems to lớn lack knowledge about the place where he or she lives

Raising awareness internationallyaao ước potential border-crossersbefore they fall into lớn the hands of traffickers, in countries where this crime is pervasive sầu & where border smuggling frequently involves human trafficking
Helping the public to reportsuspected cases of human trafficking

Human trafficking is a heinous international crime, and as the State Department notes in its most recent report on the subject, it is unfortunately flourishing due to current global financial issues.
