A reader on Ask MetaFilter writes to community, “to rescue two ex-student girls from Russia caught up in a human trafficking scam (slave prostitution) in NYC”. Here’s an abstract: “My friend and former student K arrived in DC yesterday, along with a friend. She came over on some kind of travel exchange program put together by a Russian travel agency called 'Aloha'. They paid about 3K for this program. The program promised a job offer in advance, but didn't deliver. They said they would send one via email, but failed there, too.”
