How to avoid scamming from Cambodia and global trafficking

Thousands of victims of internet fraud and human trafficking from around the world are imprisoned in facilities in Cambodia. There, under threat of torture, they are forced to search the internet for more potential victims of scamming, who are offered well-paid jobs that only require computer skills. The modern-day slaves learn that they are owned by a gang and cannot return home without paying a ransom. Find out much more about human trafficking in Cambodia in the latest Outriders podcast, in which we speak to experts there.

According to UK Home Secretary Suella Braverman, migrants are increasingly trying to obtain the status of victims of human trafficking. According to her, “there has been a 450 per cent increase in slavery claims since 2014”. However, an analysis of all such cases from the first half of this year showed that 97 per cent of people claiming to be victims of trafficking are actually telling the truth, which was confirmed by an investigation by UK authorities.

The provincial government of Alberta, Canada, will allocate $20.8 million over the next four years to implement the recommendations of the Human Trafficking Task Force. This will create an anti-trafficking office, as well as a centre of excellence for research and data collection. Human trafficking includes sexual abuse, modern slavery and trafficking in human organs or tissues.
