Sometimes traffickers hire people and pay them to recruit unsuspecting victims. It is worth it to the traffickers because they know they can make a lot of money from whoever is brought in. Using recruiters also keeps the traffickers themselves out of the spotlight and gives them less chance of being caught. Sometimes traffickers force or coerce people into being recruiters. In Tyler’s case, he wanted money and didn’t care about how anyone else was affected by his actions. It’s called grooming when traffickers or recruiters buy gifts, give compliments, and spend time with potential victims. People of all different ages, backgrounds, and genders are involved in trafficking and recruiting.
