Don't be a money mule!

A full-scale ‘Money Muling Action’ is launched every year at the European level for the purpose of making people aware of the danger of money mules. 

What is meant by ‘money mules’?

Money mules are used as go-between’s by criminals and criminal organisations. Their task is to transfer fraudulent money, either consciously or unconsciously, to the perpetrators of fraud. Working with go-between’s makes it more difficult to detect the identity of those criminals.

Just like those who commit fraud, money mules can be subject to prosecution for the offence of illegal transfer of fraudulent money.


More information on money mules can be found here or on the Europol website.
