Nationwide crackdown on money laundring mules

Read Time:33 Second

The police have arrested 135 people in a major nationwide operation against money laundering and so-called “mules”.

More than 200 people are suspected of having transferred money or made their bank account available to criminal masterminds in order to obscure a money trail.

The police say that the laundered money originates from fraud, where especially senior citizens have been contacted by perpetrators who pretend to come from, for example, Nets, the bank, or the police, in order to trick the victims out of personal data or money -also called contact fraud.

Investigations against the ringleaders of organized contact fraud are running on a separate track, the police said.
