Vienna, Austria: Sadly it is often the case that migrants in desperate situations are preyed on and exploited by human traffickers and people smugglers. These people want to make money at the expense of migrants - often lying about life in destination countries and generally making false promises - and often have no regard for their safety or security. Would-be migrants should always follow regular channels and our Migrants Resource Centres (MRCs) are always available to provide neutral, fact-based advice.
