In order to warn young people and their environment, Febelfin has been highlighting the phenomenon of money mules for the third year in a row. In collaboration with a number of partners, such as the Antwerp police zone, Jes, Formaat, Kras Jeugdwerk and SAAMO, Febelfin produced awareness-raising material for young people and their environment, to prevent money mule fraud.
SAAMO Antwerp: "Wanting to earn easy money by being a money mule only causes problems. Yet in practice we notice that many young people are tempted. That is why these brochures are so necessary: they explain exactly what money mules do and why it is dangerous. We really need to make sure that young people understand this and these brochures will help to do that."
