US: MONEY MULE AWARENESS BOOKLET

The FBI has published an advisory booklet which explains what a “money mule” is, the complicity spectrum, indicators, potential consequences, and how to protect oneself.  This follows what the FBI has seen as an increase in the use of witting or unwitting individuals’ accounts to launder the proceeds of crime.  The FBI defines a money mule as a person who transfers illegally acquired money on behalf of or at the direction of another. Money mules often receive a commission for the service or provide assistance because they believe they have a trusting or romantic relationship with the individual who is asking for help.
