Refugees or Asylum seekers are the absolute most defenseless individuals on the planet today. Because of the urgency that a great number of people fleeing from their home countries often have they are very easy targets for traffickers who peddle lies to them about the entire process of fleeing one country to another.
Over 5000 people have died crossing the Mediterranean, alone, last year. The loss of vulnerable human lives to the sea is something that needs to be reduced as much as possible. One of the chief ways for changing a situation is to educate people more on them and Germany’s government certainly has the idea.

Below we list some of the lies told by traffickers to unsuspecting refugees, assylum seekers.

1. They always Promise Big Ships

The promise of big spacious ships by these traffickers is one of the biggest lies peddled and on Rumours About Germany it ranks as the top lie. Most human traffickers try to maximize their profit by using old, unseaworthy boats.

2. They inflate the Number of Refugee Spots Allowed In Country

They also lie about this to unsuspecting refugees and assylum seekers Meanwhile in reality Most developed nations allow only a specified number of refugees from different countries each year and some do not even have that choosing instead to determine cases independently. Where possible it is better to check this particular detail before deciding on a country to flee to.

3. Deals With Other Nations

Some traffickers speak of the ease of moving to another country if the particular country being emigrated to does not pan out.

4. Conducive Atmosphere In New Country

Migrants are concerned with rebuilding their lives and so stories on the ease of integration into new countries are, especially, attractive. One promise discounted by Rumours About Germany was that every refugee receives a welcome payment of €2,000 and a house of their own in Germany. Even when a migration is successful it often takes refugees quite a while to rebuild their lives in the new country.
