PROJECT: PROTECTING YOUNG TEENS FROM FINANCIAL SCAMS

YOU MAY SHARE THIS PUBLIC DOCUMENT

 

Young teenagers are often targeted by scammers who try to exploit their inexperience and desire to help others.


One common scam involves asking to use your bank account to receive money, with the promise of a reward. However, this is a ploy to launder stolen funds and can leave you in serious legal trouble.

 

THE SCAM EXPLAINED:

Here is how the scam typically works:


  • A scammer, often someone in jail, will contact you and claim they need to receive money but cannot use their own account.

  • They may say it is for a good cause, like helping a sick relative.

  • The scammer will ask you to provide your bank account details so they can transfer the money to you.

  • They may even offer to send you a cut of the funds as a "thank you."

  • Once you provide your information, the scammer will use your account to deposit stolen or fraudulent money.

  • This is a form of money laundering, and you can be held legally responsible.

  • The scammer may also ask you not to mention their name, as they are not allowed to have a phone in jail.

  • This is a red flag that the situation is not legitimate.

 

THE DANGERS:

Allowing someone to use your bank account, even temporarily, can have serious consequences: 


  • You could be charged with money laundering, which can result in fines and even jail time. 

  • Your bank account may be frozen, making it difficult to access your own money. 

  • Your credit score could be damaged, making it harder to get loans, credit cards, or even a job in the future.


 

SAFETY MEASURES AGAINST THESE SCAMS:

To avoid falling victim to this scam, remember the following:


  • Never share your bank account details or other personal financial information with anyone you do not know and trust.

  • Be wary of any requests to use your account to receive or transfer money, even if the person claims it is for a good cause.

  • If someone asks you not to mention their name, it is a clear sign that the situation is not legitimate.

  • If you are unsure, talk to a trusted adult, such as a parent or teacher, before taking any action. 

  • Remember, your financial security and future are too important to risk.

  • Stay vigilant, and do not let scammers take advantage of you.

EXTREMELY IMPORTANT: All potential clients need to be aware that owing to the nature of our work as specialist investigators there are people who have been caught on the wrong side of the law - who are trying to discredit me - Mike Bolhuis and my organisation Specialised Security Services - to get themselves off the hook.

We strongly recommend that you make up your minds concerning me and our organisation only after considering all the factual information - to the exclusion of hearsay and assumptions. Furthermore, you are welcome to address your concerns directly with me should you still be unsatisfied with your conclusions.
