Forgive me if it's been posted before and I've missed the thread.

I have received an email from allegedly a UK company offering me the chance to work from home. This "UK company" say it is having success selling its products abroad but it is against their policy to accept payments from abroad for those products. All I have to do is accept payments into my bank account from the USA then send them onto the company via Western Union Transfer.

I'm sure most people will realise this is a money laundering scam and should not be touched with a barge pole but I am posting because I personally know of one person caught by this. Anyone found guilty of money laundering can be jailed for up to 14 years and receive an unlimited fine.

If you receive an email like this it can be forwarded to reports@banksafeonline.org.uk for investigation.
