    Me and a friend on a night out came across a group of rather wealthy russians(could tell my watches they were wearing) they bought us drinks etc and then we left, the encounter was for less than 30 minutes. They gave us their number but I never rang them.

    Unknown to me my friend kept on texting on them and theyve been hanging out throughout the summer and they have showered her with gifts. Now my friend is on the verge of quitting her job (at Asda) for a modelling job in Russia ??

    It all seems very suspicious and Ive told my friend to be careful but she doesnt listen.


    My friend also has a boyfriend which she hasnt mentioned to the russians. What should I do, I could try and get hold of her parents but I dont even know them.

    Well when it comes to it her parents will know bout the modelling job and u can slyly let slip that she might be going with russian guys who im assuming are older?

    I guess you'd feel differently if they were British?

    Tell her parents the Russians looked dodgy, the rest is up to them. If she then gets trafficked then the parents have themselves to blame, your conscious can be clear.

    A bright new career abroad? This is what all the girls that get caught up in the sex trafficking industry think as well.

    Avoid. Avoid.

    Yeah, because they would live in Britain. I.e. not shipping you off to some foreign country.

    Or: "Your daughter is being trafficked."

    You can get kidnapped in the UK or anywhere else just as easy. If anything I'd probably wonder why they would come from a country with some of the most beautiful women, to a country with the ugliest women in Europe...looking for models.

    She would need to be a full blown idiot to accept their 'modelling offer', human trafficking is no joke in russia

    IMHO, I'd call her aside and speak with her before you go ahead and contact her parents. They're probably looking to utilise her for trafficking uses especially since she has a british passport.
