Banks and credit card companies have designed effective and sophisticated systems for identifying potential human trafficking through patterns of payment, spending, deposits, travel and otherwise moving money. This is essential as most traffickers will utilize legitimate financial institutions in a variety of ways including using prepaid credit cards, making bank accounts in for victims or businesses, encouraging victims to transfer money using money remittance services to pay for recruitment fees, etc. Read the financial section of the report, take a look at the other industry intersections, or learn more about what to do if you work at a bank.
