The past decade has seen the growing business of sex trafficking, largely due to the rise of social media and the digital world. Mining through digital information about sex trafficking and pimps, DeliverFund was founded five years ago by former CIA agent, Nic McKinley. Today, Alumni from the CIA, the National Security Agency, U.S. Navy SEALs and U.S. Air Force Special Ops work together to vacuum the internet and eradicate the business of sex-trafficking. Ironically, DeliverFund operates out of a Maple Avenue office that used to be the hub to Backpage, an international web-based sex marketing operation. Backpage made Dallas the world hub for sex-trafficking and had an estimated annual income of $150 million dollars. Thanks to a new law, the Department of Justice raided the office and shut it down last year. DeliverFund is a nonprofit organization that leverages internet data and advanced software to track suspected traffickers and information about that person and their victims. They use software that they created themselves, called PATH. In addition to this, they meet with law enforcement to help with cases, as well as train them to do the same things with software-equipped laptops. At no cost, DeliverFund provides three dozen departments around the country with their software.
