Financial Grooming (formally called "Pig Butchering") is a criminal activity that victimizes people in multiple ways. Trafficking victims are typically held in isolation and coerced to perform fraudulent activities through violence and force. The individuals who fall prey to Financial Grooming schemes are convinced to invest most or all of their assets, only to later realize that their money has been stolen. For fraud victims, financial ruin is often accompanied by mental health crises and a sense of insecurity, as they are unable to recover their lost assets. The victims of Financial Grooming suffer immensely, with some left emotionally and financially devastated.
