Recently, the price of fame may have nearly cost me my life, when a man fabricated a broadcasting contract with a major network in order to get me and another media personality to Russia for the Sochi Olympics.

Okay, that was creepy. Good thing she listened to her instincts, which is something everyone should do. Article noted.

Good instincts; glad your head wasn't too hard to listen.

A timely article. Human trafficking is making news more and more. Would that our do-nothing-but-repeal-Obamacare-and-push-anti-choice-legislation Congress might focus their attention on this instead.

A very timely article. Human trafficking is making the news more and more. Would that our do-nothing-but-repeal-Obamacare-and-pass-anti-choice-legislation pols take up this issue instead.

Noted thank you Carrie and Thank you Rose for the "Heads up"
Thankfully this time the young lady heeded her insticts and checked and double checked the employer.
This is one way traffickers work offering employment. Always check out the credentials of potential employers even in your own crountry.

I know a man who did legit business in Russia and the govt is so corrupt they will simply take your assets with no legal recourse.

It is good to get articles into the public eye that warn them that trafficking in people doesn't only happen to poor, illiterate, disadvantaged girls and young women. Thanks for sharing this and bringing it to the attention of many.
What is also needed is to get such stories into the hands of youth group leaders, for discussion in their groups - and why not also into teachers' associations, to be carried over into schools and colleges?
