Money Mule Scam
two weeks ago i was looking for a job online and i came across this job listing "Home based Personal Assistant" so I whatsapp the number on the listing. The guy told me that the job scope was to receive funds and record transactions from their sales rep. So upon reviewing and approving my CV, he asked for my bank details and I gave it to him.

The next day he notified me that a certain amount of money has been credited because of sales. He said I have to record it down and then transfer the money out to another bank account. I just did what he told me to do for the next couple of days AS I thought my main job purpose was to record the transactions. Until 2-3 days later I found out that my bank account had been frozen. I panicked and called the bank, they said my account was under investigation by the police. So I called the police and they told me to go down and give a statement because I am now involved as the account is mine. i hope no one else encounters a case like this because it is horrible. I know nothing about money laundering and nothing about laws and the police so this was very frightening for me.
