What Are Scammer Money Mules?
We have published in the past on this topic and it is one that is of significant concern to scam victims because they can easily cross the line from being a victim to an accomplice.
First, What Is A Money Mule Scam
Here’s How They Work:
Someone might offer you a job. Or say you’ve won a sweepstakes. Or start an online relationship with you. Whatever the story, next they want to send you money – and then ask you to send it on to someone else.
They often say to wire the money or use gift cards.
But that money is stolen. And there never was a job, a prize, or a relationship (romance) – only a scam.
