[Live Webinar]: An Unfolding Crisis: Human Trafficking in SEA's Scam Compounds
Those suspicious texts you have received may not be what they seem. Behind them, hundreds of thousands of people are held in slavery.
Forced scamming is a brutal and highly lucrative form of human trafficking. Victims are being exploited in heavily guarded compounds, where they are forced to scam others online, subject to sexual exploitation, torture and even organ trafficking.
The rapid proliferation of these compounds has resulted in a trafficking crisis of unprecedented scale.
Learn from experts from Blue Dragon and Humanity Research Consultancy how this crisis has emerged and, most importantly, what we can do to stop it.
This one-hour discussion will shed some light on:
- How these scam compounds emerged
- What goes on within them
- The impacts on victims of human trafficking
