Money Mules

A job offer includes the receipt and transfer of money. Your own bank account has to be used for this. 

Money is transferred within a short time to the bank accounts of those who take up such an offer. After a commission is deducted, this amount usually has to be transferred abroad. The money almost always comes from illegal business transactions. Those offering such jobs exploit unsuspecting people to transfer money earned through online fraud to accounts abroad. Fictitious job offers are particularly common in the real estate sector. The victim is supposed to receive and transfer funds from real estate transactions.
