Is anyone else getting these ?

I have just started receiving lots of these in my catcher accounts, but all quoting different g-mail reply addresses.

I've replied to one to see what happens.

It is not money laundering if there is no money to launder.

If it is fake checks, counterfeit money orders; then no money is laundered as you received no money.
Same thing if you defraud others. These examples are just plain scamming and not money laundering.

I have never seen an actual money laundering operation where you actually RECEIVE money that you get to keep, and you pass on most of it (minus your cut) to someone else. This never happens. One CAN make money in money laundering, but nobody will offer some third party via spam, such a job.

Those who launder money NEVER involve third parties. Too much risk of them being exposed. Money launderers always buy businesses which don't do any actual business and then go around claiming they're making money in the business.

Another thing about money laundering is that there is a way for those receiving the money to say they got the money through legitimate means.

A great example of money laundering was this one shipping service where the money launderers would go around to stores in the area and buy goods with real cash. Then they ship them to the home country where they are resold at retail outlets. The receipts are then used to fund other activities.

Taken in context, it's accurate:

Job scam quick guide: it's a scam if...

* they want you to collect and forward money in any way (a "money mule" job). You'll wind up engaged in money laundering, personally defrauded via expertly forged cheques, money orders, etc, or defrauding someone else who pays for goods that never arrive.


The money laundering comes into play in a lot of the mule scam websites, particularly those run by the Russian gangs. They weren't saying that the fake checks were money laundering per se; but that money laundering is one of the possibilities of what you're getting involved with if you take on one of these "jobs."

I think the confusion lies in what money laundering is. Money laundering is taking cash that is obtained from illegal activities (like drug dealing, racketeering, extortion, etc.) and making it look like it came from legitimate activities. Real money is involved and used throughout the entire process. The "dirty" money (from illegal activities) is made "clean" by making it look like it came from legal activities.

Example: Joe Drug Dealer makes $10 million USD cash last year selling drugs. He buys a business selling item X and arranges that cash to be funneled through it. Using bookkeeping shenanigans, he is able to make it look like he made that cash through that business instead of through drug dealing.

The mule scam websites are not dealing with money laundering - those deal with forwarding stolen property to fraudsters and being the fool who gets arrested and charged when the police catch up to them.

The fake check scams are simply ways to get people to part with their real money by sending them nonexistent money. This is not money laundering.

One CAN make money, by money laundering. But it never involves fake checks, stolen credit cards, or wire transfers. Also, ordinary folks don't get offered money laundering jobs. These criminal gangs use trusted people for these kind of things.
