    What's a "Money Mule" ?

    Post by papa_umau on Tue 13 Nov 2018, 11:55 am

    Focus on Money Mules

    Behaviours that put you at risk of becoming a money mule.

    Responding to job adverts or social media posts that promise large amounts of money for very little work.

    Failing to research a potential employer, particularly one based overseas, before handing over your personal or financial details to them.

    Allowing an employer, or someone you don't know and trust, to use your bank account to transfer money.

    How to protect yourself

    No legitimate company will ever ask you to use your own bank account to transfer their money.

    Don't accept any job offers that ask you to do this.

    Be especially wary of job offers from people or companies overseas as it will be harder for you to find out if they really are legitimate.

    Never give your financial details to someone you don't know and trust.

    As I was when I first saw it.

    Better to know than not to know.

    I had heard it mentioned at school, where I work, but could not remember what it was.

    Now I know thanks to you Papa.
