The mule

A “money mule” is a person who is used in a criminal operation to transport and launder stolen money/ drugs. The term is a derivation of "drug mule," which is a person who transports illegal substances over a border. Victims of money mule scams include individuals, businesses and financial institutions. Criminals, often who have gained illegal access to business or consumer bank accounts, tend to recruit money mules via phishing emails. Fraudsters post online/social network job offers to recruit “middle men” who are made to believe that they will act as debt collector/agent. Mules may be witting or unwitting.
