وزارة البريد وتكنولوجيات الإعلام والاتصال Practical example - recruitment of migrant girls via Internet « There was a site in the Internet searching for girls, young girls to be models and to perform - it was said so in a movie - and they would like them to speak Portuguese with a Brazilian accent. So it was directed to the Brazilian girls. Because as you know they speak Portuguese in Brazil but with a different accent. So the advertisement on the Web was precisely to Brazilian girls. They were young. We took notice of that because one of the girls escaped one year later or so. The girls were recruited to which is prostitution bars in Spain. They didn't know. They gave all the information by the Internet and they were very nice, and what we saw was very attractive. And for young people like the Brazilian girls in this case, it could be Portuguese that would be Brazilian. It would be easy to understand why the younger generation believes that everything is true- because they want to be famous. » Ministry of Interior of Portugal in WS 109, IGF 2010
