I am desperately sorry to hear that this is happening to you and your girlfriend.
Do you know the location of this woman whom your girlfriend was living with? Do you know where your girlfriend has been sent? Has she been able to contact you? Are you still in touch with her at this time?
Hello, This is Main Hussain. Thanks for your response. Yes i know the location of this woman whom my girlfriend was living. I don't know where exactly but some one told me Philadelphia, PA and i know that person and cell phone numbers too. No. She came new and she didn't have cell phone to contact and she was speaking very poor English but she can speak Bangla. No i dont have in touch with her at this time and i am worried about her life and no freedom. I have missing report to Springfield Police and i have case number. Please help me.
Hi, Sorry, I was involved with another customer.
I am going to direct you to some resources of agencies that can help in the search and recovery of your girlfriend, and also the apprehension of this ring of smugglers.
First of all, the local police probably will not be of much help. They only have jurisdiction in the town or county that they serve in. These people are trafficking across state lines and thus, you need to get the FBI involved.
What city are you in right now? I am going to get you the contact information for the nearest FBI Field Office.
Also, because your gf is here on a Visa, you need to report this to Homeland Security.
To do that, call 1-866-347-2423 (toll free) or report online at www.ice.gov/tips.
Please let me know what city you are in when you get a chance so I can get you the FBI contact info.
Hello Ladylawer! I am living in Maryland. Hyattsville, MD. One of my next door Best friend already reported to FBI and i still didn't get any information yet. I need to have Lawyer for the lady who by force took her another state and look like kidnap her or by force prostution with her, i need to court to prosecute her. Thanks. Main H.
The problem here is that a lawyer cannot prosecute these people.
The State Attorney, District Attorney or Secretary of State must do that. And they can only do this AFTER the FBI or law enforcement has arrested these people on trafficking charges.
This is just how it works in the US. If you have already reported this to the FBI, that's good. You also need to report it to Homeland Security.
Hi Ladylawyer. Can i see The State Attorney or District Attornie for this matter please. I need there contact number and address too if you have. plese help.
I will forward those to you, they can perhaps launch their own investigations into these people but before anyone can be prosecuted, they MUST be captured and charged by law enforcement.
You said this woman lived in PA, right?
