Money Mules  

These scammers often pose as employers offering genuine jobs to people desperate to earn extra money. They reach out to their victims through job ads or even in-person offering ‘quick cash’ for a job. The job they are paying for will most likely involve the victim accepting money into their bank account and passing it on to another. This is a form of money laundering and can carry a 14-year sentence in prison. The funds they ask their victims to help transfer could come from any kind of terrorist background or illicit activity.  

Do not fall for any job that promises quick cash. If the pay sounds too good to be true, it most likely is!
