Abduction is already taking place in public in some countries of the world.The use of threats, force, abuse of power upon the victims are being carried out and controlled by a certain person for money.

Why is this evil being done? Possible for the removal of organs from the victim’s body, forced labor, slavery, forced into prostitution or sexual exploitation. Since the time of the Atlantic Slave Trade in Africans ended in the Caribbean and other parts of the world, human trafficking still exist and is said to be earning organized Criminals lucrative cash and the gross profits are estimated to be over 32 billion.

An estimate of 17,500 foreign nationals are trafficked into the United Kingdom annually and about 200,000 American children are at risk of being trafficked each year. On the International front it is estimated 600,000 to 820,000 women, children, and men sent across the international border every year and several million who have never crossed the international border, are possible sold as body parts.

The underworld criminal organization who is involved in the running of guns and drugs as made human trafficking the second illegal cargo which is almost the largest illegal industry into the global. The victims of human trafficking are from all social standings, which are, high class, the second class to lower class.

Their targets are usually unemployed professionals, college or university graduates who are seeking employment, young girls and boys in deprived circumstance, Men who have been deceived by the promise of good jobs only to arrive overseas and have their passport taken away and forced in backbreaking labor.

Traffickers usually start out by making false promises of a better life and they befriend persons by the show of affection and may include gift so be aware of how they recruit people in their trap for fresh cargo. Avoid the company of people you do not know and trust, be careful where you go and what you eat, drink and who you are with. If anything sounds too good to be true do not be tempted and do not be afraid to say no, plus be observant to their reaction, whether acquaintance or stranger and once the word no slips from your mouth. If their reaction is angry or seems abusive it is best to cut all contact with them or the person.

Check and double check all agents or recruiters that are offering employment for overseas jobs or local ones. Look them up with government agencies that are responsible for employment plus Google them. Parents be observant and know who your children are communicating with on Facebook because this is another method that is utilized to encourage children to run away in the arms of Traffickers.

These suggestions are not iron clad but if they are employed then your chance will be better than if you were not aware of these things. Evil is everywhere today, so we need to be on the safe side and protect ourselves and our families.
