Don't trust strangers, an advice that most parents give to their children, is even more valid with time passing by and things changing rapidly.

According to Historias Gurú, an American Airlines agent in California prevented two teens from falling into a suspected human trafficking plot when she stopped them from boarding a cross-country flight.

According to Today, 47-year-old Denice Miracle was helping customers check in for their flights at Sacramento International Airport.

She realized something was wrong when two girls approached her ticket counter to check-in for a one-way first-class flight.

Miracle was shocked when she discovered the girls’ tickets were flagged for potential credit card fraud. She immediately denied the girls their tickets and contacted authorities.

According to Independent, she told the two girls that they would not be able to fly and quickly alerted the County Sheriff's Department.

"It was a first-class ticket. It was very expensive. I told a supervisor, 'I'm going to call the sheriff. It just doesn't feel right to me,’" she explained.

Authorities quickly discovered that the girls met a man on social media who invited them to New York City for the weekend to earn $2 000 to model.

Later, when the authorities tried to call him back, no one answered and moments later, his Instagram account disappeared.was gone forever.

These two girls were in true danger, as they didn't tell their parents about the trip and didn't even know that their tickets did not cover a return flight.

"When I told them that they didn't have a flight home, that's when it kind of sunk in that maybe I was actually telling the truth," said Sheriff's Deputy Todd Sanderson.

According to People, the girls’ parents were then contacted by the police, who revealed to them that their daughters were believed to be victims of attempted human trafficking.

"In my opinion, what was going to happen was they were going to go back to New York and become victims of sex trafficking. They said they wouldn't have let that happen, and I said they probably wouldn't have had a choice," Sanderson added.

According to Mary Frances Bowley, founder of Wellspring Living, an organization fighting childhood exploitation, these methods are not unusual these days.
