Cyber Slavery

Cyber Slavery

News: Cyber slavery is emerging as a form of organized crime of unprecedented severity and scale. Over 5,000 Indian nationals are reported to be held captive in Cambodia, coerced into committing cyber frauds targeting individuals in India.

What is Cyber Slavery?
 Cyber slavery refers to a disturbing form of exploitation where individuals are coerced or deceived into participating in online scams, often against their will. 
 These victims find themselves trapped in a cycle of fraudulent activities, working tirelessly to generate illicit profits for criminal organizations.

Cambodia and Myanmar “Cyber-Slaves”
 Young, educated people from various countries are lured with promises of lucrative work in Southeast Asia, particularly Cambodia and Myanmar.
 Once they arrive, they discover that they are locked in compounds and forced to engage in online scams. These scams prey on lonely hearts worldwide, using illusory promises of love and companionship to extract money from unsuspecting victims.
 Failure to meet profit targets or any attempt to escape results in brutal punishments.
 The victims, who are computer literate and often multilingual, become cyber-slaves, perpetuating scams known as “pig butchering.”
 The global reach of these operations is only now becoming clear, with victims originating from countries like Bangladesh, Brazil, China, Ethiopia, India, the United States, and more 

Over 1,00,000 Trafficked victims
 More than 100,000 people have been trafficked to compounds in Southeast Asia, where they are coerced into conducting cyber scams.
 These victims work round the clock, generating profits for criminal networks.
 Combating this crime requires collaboration among governments, NGOs, and the private sector.

Investigations and Escapes:
 Al Jazeera conducted an investigation and interviewed victims who escaped from 
Cambodian cyber-scam operation. These victims shared their harrowing experiences, shedding light on the extent of cyber slavery in the region.

How can we combat cyber slavery?
