Financial Exploitation on Social Media

Financial Exploitation on Social Media

A new documentary explores the rise of money launderers on Snapchat and Instagram. 

Criminals are targeting young and vulnerable people on social media. They try to convince them to let them use their personal bank accounts – to send and receive on illicit earnings.

There can be serious consequences for those who get involved. They might get locked out of the financial system, or they could even serve time in prison.

One reason why so many young people are still vulnerable to this crime is because so few are aware of it.
