RSN™ Special Report: The Basic Money Mule Model!

Scammers scam their victims, but while the scam is ongoing, they convince the victim to do them a favor – receive some money or merchandise for them. It might be for business, from a family member, any story will do. Then send to it over to them!

Then the victim – who has now become a Mule – sends it on to the scammer.

Scammers Do This For Various Reasons:

  • They do not want other victims to know they are not where they say they are.
  • They want to convince other victims they are not a scammer
  • They want to buy things using stolen credit cards, and the Mule has a valid local address that will not raise alarms with the shipper.

The Money Mule Model

Scammers use this model extensively. It is estimated that about 12% of scams involve a Mule or trans-shipper.

The scammers also utilize Moles in their local Transfer Agency (such as Western Union) so that they never have to give out their real identity. When you have a Mole in the Western Union or MoneyGram shop, the money can come to any fake name and the Mole simply “pays” it out claiming they verified the identification.
