Money Mule Scam
Saw a job ad for a part time personal assistant on google and applied for it. Gave my email and bank acc thinking it was part of HR process, as nothing felt wrong yet. I was to be assisting an ecommerce biz, doing simple ACCOUNTING and checking transactions.
On 1st day of work, I realised there was money transferred to my acc. I was told to transfer that amount to another acc and after transferring, money still kept pouring in. I panicked and kept on transferring as I did not want to have anything to do with the cash.
Many transactions were (unfortunately) made in a panic and eventually my bank acc and secondary linked acc got frozen. I have a made a police report since, and is waiting to be contacted.
