Is Myrtle Beach ripe for human trafficking?

Local media has been reporting on human trafficking in the area; last month over at The Sun News and a write-up about a local group fighting to stop Human trafficking over at The Weekly Surge from last year are two great pieces on the subject.

And now comes a write-up from about the subject and how South Carolina and Myrtle Beach are prime targets due to the transient nature of the area and influx of tourists.
