Goofs
When the ICE officer in disguise checks in at the airport you can clearly see on the monitor of the customs officer that it is written Chisinau. Chisinau is the capital of Moldavia, a country near Russia, when in fact it is said that she comes from Moscow, Russia having demanded a Russian email address.

The New York crime scene investigators have the inscription CSI on their jacket, while NYPD CSI is called CSU, for crime scene unit.

When Kate registered on the online dating site posing as a mail order bride, she lists her age as 21, even though she looks older. When her passport and visa are scanned at the airport, her birth date is listed on the monitor readout as 7/9/1988. A few seconds later as her passport is stamped, the date on the stamp reads 6/28/2005. This would make Kate only 16 years old, two weeks shy of her 17th birthday. As the traffickers examine all girls' papers, this would have stuck out like a sore thumb and made Kate very suspect.

Andrei: [preparing to rape Helena] In case you ever think of running away? Don't be stupid. Just think of your little daughter. She's safe, as long as you behave.

Final Title Card: Approximately 800,000 people are trafficked annually across international borders. After the illegal sale of drugs and weapons, the most profitable criminal business is HUMAN TRAFFICKING. Is this interesting? Interesting? Yes No | Share this Share this: Facebook  |  Twitter  |  Permalink Hide options Sergei: The situation's really very simple. You wanted to come to America, and we got you here. But it all cost money. Your passports, visas, tickets, boarding... it all adds up. By now, each of you has accumulated a debt worth tens of thousands of dollars. Plus interest and other expenses. It means until you finish paying that money back to us, usually in a few years or so, we own you. Please understand. It's not my intention to cause you misery. We are in this together. But, be very certain, that if you try to run away, someone will pay the price. I have all your information. Where you live, how many brothers and sisters you have back home, everything. So if you get the urge to do something that might threaten our arrangement, and you will get that urge... and control it. Or inevitably, someone close to you will be hurt.
