The Case Against Sex Trafficking Fraud And Convicted Swindler Chong Kim

Breaking Out started this investigation into Chong Kim because we had questions that arose during the time and immediately following that Chong Kim showed interest in assisting Breaking Out, and wanted to be part of our organization.

After talking to Ms. Kim over several years, the many contradictions and inconsistencies we noted became too much for us to ignore.

We examined her background as we do with all our staff, and discovered a criminal charge (see #3), then we began compiling all the inconsistencies Ms. Kim made during interviews, appearances, and by her own written words, and compiled a record of these statements. Below is a short list highlighting some of the questions raised by the record that we have compiled.

We encourage everyone to search YouTube and watch Ms. Kim’s statements made during the Montel Williams interview and draw your own conclusions. Read her book “Broken Silence.”

We did not include personal texts and emails from Chong Kim to Breaking Out and or fellow colleagues in other anti-trafficking organizations naming politicians as traffickers and “A” list actors she claimed were regular “Johns” while she was captive.

Breaking Out has received a Cease and Desist Letter from Chong Kim’s attorney. Due to the fact that the below information come from either public records and or statements directly made by Chong Kong we are comfortable releasing the information contained in this statement.

Pg. 23- My family and I migrated here approximately in the spring of ’77

3. Have you ever been arrested?

4. How did you acquire your ‘injuries’?

In your book it states:

Pg. 29- In the Korean culture I couldn’t speak Korean anymore so I was automatically at fault, being a disabled child I was already an outcast. My mother was ashamed of my disability and she refuse to be seen in public with me.

Pg. 30- I eventually got tired of the constant surgeries that doctors were so amazed by, since my condition was a rare circumstance.

Pg. 97- My other fear was my physical mobility, I felt completely helpless and didn’t know what to do, even if I ran I knew I wouldn’t get very far with my limp.

In an interview:

I wore the same lens from 1995-97 and I could have become blind because of that, or my vision could have grown worse. I didn’t think about vision care as a health concern until in 2011, when I was diagnosed with blepharospasm, or constant blinking.

In 1995, I fell in love with a military man, who persuaded me to move with him to an undisclosed remote area.

According to an interview:

She was an 18 year old freshman at DeVry University in Dallas. One night at a club she met, who she thought, was the man of her dreams. “Here comes this guy who is wearing a Marine outfit, and I was like oh my God. My girlfriends were like he is checking you out,” said Kim.

She found out her ‘boyfriend’ was really a recruiter. He was talking to traffickers from the Russian and Albanian mob.

6. Who were your traffickers your ‘boyfriend’ or escort madam?

According to her book:

Pg 97- A Madame of an Escort Service, she offered to help me find refuge, shelter, and food by sending me to Vegas for a legitimate job. Eventually, the female pimp who recruited me sent me to these gentlemen, who worked in Nevada where my experience in Human Trafficking began.

According to various articles:

He chained her up in the basement and burned her passport and documents. There, she was raped and tortured before she was transported to the warehouse somewhere in an Indian reservation in Nevada.

“From that point, I was beaten. I was raped. I was held hostage,” Kim said. “Then I got sent to Nevada, where we were held in a storage container. That’s where the trafficking started.”
