International gang of loverboys brought to justice
Not long ago, an international gang of loverboys has been busted in Austria and a couple of other European countries. According to officials, the gang has been operating and forcing women into illegal prostitution since 2012 and they have made a huge amount of money in this time. Recently, the joined forces of the Austrian, Romanian and Great British police forces have successfully stopped the operations of this human trafficking gang.
The Romanian police have successfully searched 16 houses in which they have found 22 suspects in total. According to the reports, some of the gang members who were arrested might have been the leaders of the Viennese part of the gang. In these house raids, the police have confiscated large amounts of cash, multiple luxurious cars, jewels and other things that have been bought from their illegal activities.
In addition to the Romanian arrests, the Great British police department has also made two arrests from the same gang. These people are currently being held in the police station for questioning. The Viennese law enforcement hasn’t made any arrests yet, but they have sized phone data and documents that could link the suspects to the loverboy gang.
More about the Loverboy method
Men who use the loverboy method lie to their victims and extort them whenever they have the chance. Loverboys pretend that they care about the victim; they buy them gifts and promise great opportunities for them in another country. Loverboys usually tell the women that they can work in another country for a great profit only to sell them into illegal prostitution once they have crossed the border. The women then have their passports taken away from them and they are forced into prostitution with mental and physical abuse.
