Scams and Fraud
Money Muling and Laundering
Fraudsters can offer fake jobs to help them commit a number of scams. One of the biggest fake job scams is to get people to use their own bank account to move stolen money. This is known as 'money muling' or 'money laundering'. It's a serious crime and can result in your bank account being closed. Often it can target students or those with money problems, but if you know what to look out for and what to do, you can protect your money.
If you're asked to use your own bank account to move money, turn it down. Even if you don't know what you're doing is wrong, you could be prosecuted. Fraudsters use fake jobs and get rich quick schemes to find 'money mules'. A real job would never ask you to use your bank account to move money. Or to use an account in another person's name. Any job that pays you to take money into your account then move it to another account is a scam. And there's no legal reason that a job would need to know your user ID or password. So keep your Internet Banking details safe.
Money Worries and Wellbeing
Money problems can often lead to health problems like stress, feeling low, depression or suicidal thoughts. If you feel this is happening to yourself contact your GP or phone NHS 111.
