Sex trafficking is a market-driven criminal industry based on supply and demand, according to the National Sex Trafficking Hotline. In other words, as long as people are willing to purchase other people for sex, there will be incentive to continue trafficking. Sex trafficking can occur at a business or private residence. Haffield explained that traffickers find their prey wherever young people congregate. They attend concerts and go to parks, malls and outside of schools.
It is common for them to target victims on social media.
Young people may pour out their heartaches and problems online, creating an easy target for a trafficker. They may shower them with compliments about their appearance or intellect. They are smooth talkers, expert liars and manipulators.
The trafficker lures them into a false sense of security. Most youth who are targeted struggle with issues. They have little if any family support. The trafficker may refer to her as his girlfriend to help gain her loyalty. She is vulnerable and wants to believe him.
If she is living on the streets or a runaway, he may take her in and give her a home, clothes and food. The trafficker often supports a substance habit or creates one to help keep and control her. If that doesn't work, the trafficker may resort to violence.

Haffield said it is extremely rare for a sex trafficking victim to come forward. Usually, there is a call for a disturbance or domestic assault that reveals the trafficking.
She said it is usually a slow process for a victim to break free of their trafficker. The victim generally tries several times before achieving freedom.
