How to Protect Yourself from Identity Theft
Identity theft happens when a criminal gets access to your personal information and uses it to commit fraudulent activities, such as making unauthorized purchases, opening new credit cards in your name, applying for loans, and other crimes. Identity theft can damage your credit, leave you with unwanted bills, and requires a lot of time and frustration to clean up.
How to Protect Yourself from Money Mule Scam
A money mule is someone who transfers or moves illegally acquired money on behalf of someone else. Criminals recruit money mules to help launder proceeds derived from online scams and frauds or crimes like human trafficking and drug trafficking. Acting as a money mule is illegal and punishable, even if you aren't aware you're committing a crime. Some of the federal charges you could face include mail fraud, wire fraud, bank fraud, money laundering, and aggravated identity theft.
