Money Mule Explained by Brian Kerbs

Interview With A Money Mule

After expressing my interest with their company, I was emailed a legal document (employment contract) to email or fax back to them. The employer then conducted a preliminary “background check” on me and offered me a job. I agreed to work part-time for them as an independent contractor, processing payments from their customers in the United States. I was instructed that I needed to process these payments through Wells Fargo Bank, and would need to obtain a Wells Fargo Bank account if I currently didn’t own one.

I accepted two payments (online transfers) into my Wells Fargo Bank account from two other Wells Fargo Bank customers that were supposedly Niamax customers. I was instructed to send the bulk of each payment to a specified business associate, after subtracting my 6% commission, and the Western Union transfer fee. I sent both payments to business associates in Athens, Greece by Western Union; both payments were picked up same day. One man’s name was Cornet Deglos, the other was Cleys Mercken.

Wells Fargo Bank has now reversed the initial online customer transfers into my account, stating the transactions were unauthorized (hacked from the accounts of other Wells Fargo Bank customers). I am now responsible for the gross amount ($1977.30) of both unauthorized transactions into my account because I withdrew the money and sent it on, as instructed by my employer, Niamax Limited.

Wells Fargo Bank is not interested in discussing the fact that their system was breached by a hacker, or the fact that I only processed the payments. I asked Wells Fargo Bank why holds were not placed on these online transfers into a NEW account, but they gave no answers, and didn’t provide me with an explanation.

Additionally, I notified CareerBuilder’s Integrity Team regarding their affiliation with this employer. The representative stated CareerBuilder can’t screen all employers utilizing their website, and that I should have read their fraud disclaimer, which is obscurely located in fine print on their website.

    Yes this lady was reported nothing was done to her i don’t her having my email address. she will start harrassing me and i will by 9 and 10 tenth’s of law have her locked up.

    She has also invaded his privacy and got his middle name and she was asked where she mailed this so called check and never replied back she will not get no money and that is what this woman is wanting she thinks since she is in Benin Republic.

    She can’t break the law and get away with. She need’s to be arrested. she I think got his information illegally on careerbuilder and if she work for careerbuilder, then she need’s fired and then arrested.

    I want this person’s information to turn it over to the authorties and then they can notify the law enforcement in Benin Republic and go and arrested her i even sent her email’s also telling her to leave my husband alone and i told her he did not get no check from her.

    I believe Niamax may have changed their name to Avalon VIP Assistants, LLP. I’ve gone through similar experience except they transferred the money into my account then somehow while I made the transaction they withdrew it — the total was over 9,000. The invitation letter looks almost exactly the same. And they promise it was just an accident. But they refuse to face the issue that the merchandise was never paid for and they never made it right.
