Actual cases of human trafficking and exploitation should be referred to local public authorities.
Never give a passport or ID to anyone other than a public official. Carry it close to your body. Take a picture of your identity documents with your phone so you have a backup in case of loss or theft. Send a copy to friends/family and to yourself. Do not share information and details about your identity online.
Carry cash somewhere hidden with you, perhaps even in multiple places, assuming that any bag you have could be left behind at some point. Memorize your credit card/debit card number.

Never open a bank account at the request of somebody you just met.
Develop a code word with your friends and family so that if you are in danger and can't say so, they know you are in danger. They should also know with whom and where you are staying.
