A money mule is a seemingly authentic bank account and its nominal owner, used to transfer the proceeds from financial crime.
Young money mules
- "Young people are particularly targeted to be money mules, and figures from Cifas, the UK's fraud prevention service, showed that there were 8,652 cases of 'misuse of facility' among 18- to 24-year olds in the UK between Q1 and Q3 2017, a rise of 35%."
