5 indicators of trafficking

Who becomes trafficked? Often, people are trafficked by near acquaintances, close friends, family members, and sometimes aunts and uncles.

There is a certain degree of complexity when an immediate family member is involved. The vulnerability to exploitation is high when financial emergencies make people more susceptible to manipulation by family members.

Vulnerable people do not realise the consequences of their contractual agreements and rely on the kindness of trusted relatives.
