Human traffickers lure and ensnare people into forced labor and commercial sex acts by exploiting their vulnerabilities. Human Trafficking is a crime involving the use of force, fraud or coercion to obtain some type of labor or commercial sex act. If you are younger than 18 and are made to perform a commercial sex act, it is a crime regardless of whether there is any force, fraud or coercion.
