Victims of Human Trafficking

Human Trafficking is a crime involving the exploitation of someone for the purposes of compelled labor or a commercial sex act through the use of force, fraud, or coercion.  Where a person younger than 18 is induced to perform a commercial sex act, it is a crime regardless of whether there is any force, fraud, or coercion.  Victims can be anyone from around the world or right next door: women and men, adults and children, citizens and noncitizens alike.

The National Center of Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) has a breakdown of common myths, indicators, and a cyber tipline for reporting situations that occur on the internet.
