What started out as a normal trip to the grocery store soon turned into a nightmare for mom Amanda Cropsey Florczykowski. She wrote about her experience in a Facebook post to help other parents learn the warning signs of a potentially dangerous situation.
“I’m convinced that our two-year-old daughter was the victim of a potential sex-trafficking scam yesterday,” she wrote, going on to tell the story of how a couple came up to her and her 2-year-old daughter when they were in line to check out at the grocery store and things quickly took a chilling turn.
“The couple ahead struck up the typical conversation about how ‘cute your daughter is’ and then asked about her age, repeatedly,” she said. At first she thought it was their language barrier that was leading to all of their questions, but she quickly grew uncomfortable with the whole situation.
Amanda wrote about how the woman asked to hold her daughter and then resisted when she tried to get her back. Then she heard the woman say four words that sent chills up her spine:
“Say bye to mommy.”
