Don't Be A Mule!
A Money Mule is a person who uses their account with a financial institution to hold or transfer funds on behalf of criminals. It also includes handing over account log-in details so that a person's account is controlled by a third party. Criminals often promise hefty rewards for such activity but this rarely materialises. In reality, it can lead to a criminal conviction for the money mule which in turn affects a person's ability to travel, to secure employment and to access credit.
At Kildare Credit Union we ask that you never allow third parties to have access to your Credit Union account online, nor do you allow funds which do not belong to you to be lodged to your account.
