More than 200 arrested in a worldwide anti-money laundering operation



POLICE from around thirty countries have arrested 228 people and identified thousands of “financial mules” as part of a massive anti-money laundering operation.

More than 1,000 criminal investigations have been carried out in the operation from September to November, many of which are ongoing, Europol said in a statement.



“More than 650 banks, 17 banking associations and other financial institutions have helped report 7520 fraudulent transactions conducted by financial mules. This has prevented a total loss of EUR 12.9 million,” Europol says.

In addition to Europol (European Police Office), the operation identified 3833 “financial mullahs” and 386 recruits, supported by Eurojust (European Federation for the Judiciary Cooperation) and the European Banking Federation (FBE), of which 228 arrested.

Mules often do not know how to participate in money laundering

“Financial mules” often and unwittingly participate in money laundering by receiving and transferring amounts of illegally earned money, Europol explained.

Persons making money from these mullahs are particularly active on social networks where they persuade their victims to open bank accounts on the pretext that they will send or receive money through them, according to Europol.

The operation was conducted in 31 countries, including Germany, Belgium, Spain, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, the United States and Australia.
