Fraudsters are stealing unemployment insurance money through a new Money Mule scam. Money mules are individuals who are asked to receive funds into their bank account and then “process” those funds via wire transfer, mail or peony services. Individuals are advised to protect themselves by refusing to send or receive money on behalf of individuals and businesses for which they are not responsible and to be wary of online job postings and messages promising easy money for little to no effort. Please see the flyer below for more info.
