Human traffickers treat fellow human beings as a commodity which can be traded for profit.  Devoid of the compassion and empathy may of us take for granted, these evil traffickers exploit, manipulate and even beat the victims of their crimes. Money is both their target and their vulnerability, which is why we have crucial role to play in frustrating the traffickers and maybe helping some victims to secure freedom.  Thus, what are the characteristics of a trafficker’s account and/or a victim’s account?  Do we understand the business model of some traffickers?  The answer is yes we do and we need to be looking for the red flags which can alert us and through us the police, when we see them. 

To make money they spend money and they need to be able to receive money from those who abuse trafficked victims.  We will share with you all we have learned from studying their methods and their finances. 

Martin Woods wants to motivate, agitate, frustrate traffickers and all being well, may you feel great when you submit a SAR which may save someone’s life. He will reference case studies, describe trafficking logistics and hopefully inspire some fellow AML professionals to fight for trafficked victims. He will advocate the case for Supersars when seeking to dismantle trafficking networks. 

We are very much looking forward to sharing this time with you.
