Human Trafficking Scenario

You’re waiting for the train when you recognize a teenage girl that you know from the community center where you volunteer. You overhear the girl talking about a new boyfriend she’s been hanging out with. She is bragging about how he’s older and has gotten her a new job that’s making her a lot of money. She also mentions staying out late, partying, using drugs and alcohol, and you see her showing off wads of cash to other kids.
