Police: Job Interview Letters Are For Selling Cutco Knives, Not Human Trafficking

ROSEVILLE (CBS13) — A letter advertising summer jobs that parents feared was a front for human trafficking is actually from a legitimate business, Roseville Police said.

Families claimed the company scheduled an interview where the potential interviewee would be drugged, kidnapped and turned over to human traffickers.

Police say that's not the case, and that the letters are from Vector Marketing, which operates Cutco knives. The company screens, hires and trains contractors to sell its product.

Vector marketing says its interviews are conducted at established brand offices and are safe. They aren't sure how their name was attached to the rumor.
