How does it work?

  • A trafficker builds a market out of the principle of supply and demand. They acquire victims according to their ‘buyers’ tastes in order to maximize
    profit.
  • While at times a trafficker might use force to take a victim, more often they will play on their victim’s emotional desires and vulnerabilities in
    order to establish a relationship with them. This process is called grooming and may occur over a lengthy period of time.
  • Traffickers may then use isolation, fear, violence, drug addictions, and lies to control their victim, ensuring that they will never leave them.
