Signs to look for can be subtle, but when identified in combination, could point to human trafficking. For example, a front desk clerk might think nothing of a young female guest whose partner is holding her identification and wallet for her, but when the room she checks into then has a “Do Not Disturb” sign hanging from the door all week, there’s reason for suspicion.
Among the other signs to look for in hotels:
- A traveler pays in cash one day at a time
- A guest escorts various men into their room
- An older male or female stays around the room until the visitors leave, watching the door
- The victim will rarely be left alone
- The victim will also have little control of money and identification.
