Human Trafficking Ring Dismantled

The young Ukrainian men and women—many of them out of work and with few prospects—were promised good-paying jobs in the United States. But instead of living the American dream, they were thrust into a nightmare of violence, threats, and forced servitude. For years, five brothers who ran a human trafficking organization victimized dozens of unwitting Ukrainians, underscoring the reality that modern-day slavery exists in the United States and around the world—and requires a strong response by governments and law enforcement.

Using a financial attack strategy to combat human trafficking

Human trafficking – modern day slavery
Slavery is illegal in every part of the world. Yet the slave trade has not been relegated to the ash heap of history.

Slavery, in the form of human trafficking, is a flourishing criminal enterprise. It’s the second largest crime in the world, with an estimated 27 million people currently enslaved worldwide.
No country, regardless of socio-economic status, history or political structure, is untouched by the exploitation of people for profit. About 600,000 to 800,000 victims are trafficked globally per year; the majority of victims are women and children. Human trafficking is a crime unlike any other in that it involves force, fraud, coercion and sometimes human smuggling, kidnapping and sham marriages. Victims are lured into human trafficking schemes with false promises of well-paying jobs or manipulated by people they trust. Once under the human trafficker’s control, victims are forced into prostitution, domestic servitude or other types of forced labor.

Justice in Labor Trafficking Case

In October 2012, a young woman was arrested by police in Ashland, Ohio for shoplifting a candy bar. But when she explained why she stole the candy, her story concerned the officers, and, eventually—after additional information was obtained—the Cleveland FBI opened a federal investigation into the matter.

It turned out that the young woman, who was cognitively disabled, was being held against her will and forced to perform manual labor for a couple who lived in a multi-dwelling house not far from the store where she was arrested. And it wasn’t just the woman herself being held—it was her young daughter as well. Mother and daughter had been living in the apartment—in squalid conditions and enduring constant threats—since August 2010. The withholding of food was just one of the methods their captors used to control them.
