Money mule rise

15 December 2017

The number of young people acting as ‘money mules’ has risen by 75% in one year, says the UK’s fraud prevention service, Cifas.

Between January and September 2017 there were 8,652 cases involving 18-24-year-olds.

Young people, especially students, are often targeted because they are perceived as being more vulnerable and short of money.

A rise in cases have prompted a new Cifas campaign ‘Don’t be Fooled’, as much of the money being laundered is coming from drug smuggling, people trafficking and terrorism.
