Date: Thursday, November 09, 2017
Time: 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM EST | 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM GMT
Human trafficking remains one of the fastest growing illegal enterprises. It is of special importance to the AML/financial crime prevention community who are tasked with the detection and reporting of human trafficking money laundering red flags. As financial institutions you are in a unique position to serve as a line of defense against these terrible crimes.
This is the part 1 “essentials” session in a series of two webinars. At these impactful webinars, you’ll hear Timea Nagy, human trafficking survivor, author, speaker and social advocate, who immigrated to Canada in 1998.
Her nightmare unfolded in Toronto in that same year after arriving from Budapest, Hungary in the hopes of finding meaningful employment. The daughter of a Hungarian police woman, Timea was held in a cheap motel, at the hands of traffickers, forced to work in the sex industry. Thankfully, she escaped and started her healing journey.
Timea’s sessions can realize the power of financial Institutions and the part they can play in detecting human trafficking.

Timea Nagy, immigrated to Canada in 1998. Her nightmare unfolded in Toronto in that same year after arriving from Budapest, Hungary in the hopes of finding meaningful employment. The daughter of a Hungarian police woman, Timea was held hostage (FOR THREE TERRIFYING MONTHS) at the hands of traffickers, forced to work in the sex industry. Thankfully, she escaped and started life anew. Ten years later, Ms. Nagy founded ‘Walk with Me’, a non-profit organization to assist victims of human trafficking and law enforcement agencies. Between 2009 and 2015, her organization helped over 300 victims and over 500 human trafficking-related investigations throughout Canada. In fact, Ms. Nagy played a key role in Canada’s largest human trafficking investigation led by the Canadian Federal Police (RCMP Niagara Falls Detachment) known as project OPAPA. Ms. Nagy provided training to numerous agencies in Canada, the U.S. and Europe – reaching over 10,000 law enforcement officers within sex crime units, the Federal Bureau of Investigations.
Ms. Nagy is the first Survivor of Human Trafficking to train banks and financial institutions on HT detection through transactions. Ms. Nagy has presented and trained over 1500 American and Canadian Financial institutions during the 2015-2016 Framlx Tour. Ms. Nagy also played a crucial rule regarding a Canadian National Financial Human Trafficking Task force called Project Protect.
