No this is not what happens to the household whose teenagers download material that they cannot buy. It is what happens when the unemployed respond to an on-line advert offering them the opportunity to work from home helping forward overseas payments.
At the Get Safe On-line annual conference this morning it was said that the average money-laundering “mule” makes only four payments for their new “employer” before they are picked up, held liable for refunding the payments they have made and blacklisted for credit (whether on-line or off-line).
Not only was there a better turnout at the conference than last year but the discussion was much better focussed on points of leverage.
I remain a strong fan of Get Safe On-Line and plan to blog again tomorrow on some of the other points made.
