What is a Money Mule?

Being a 'money mule' is when you allow other people access to your bank account, and it can land you in prison.

  • You may be contacted as part of a job scam or through social media and asked to transfer money, allow access or open up a new bank account.
  • The money may have been stolen or have come from illegal activities and you are being used to hide it.
  • This could result in a conviction and up to 14 years in prison a­ffecting job prospects, travel restrictions and access to money.

"How do I avoid it?"

Do not allow anyone access to your bank account, it is for your use only. Decline any requests for money transfers unless you can be sure of the reason and where the money is from. Report any suspicious requests to Action Fraud online at www.actionfraud.police.uk or telephone 0300 123 2040.
