Great commentary, Robert. In my review of the reshipping scam I highlighted the scale of recruitment: this single scam, which is just one in hundreds, had 1,925 Americans applying for a job in Air Parcel, a company that doesn’t exist. It’s a tip of a very large iceberg. And it’s fueling the Dark Cloud – without mules it’s very difficult to monetize stolen goods or empty people’s online banking accounts.

I’d say “don’t be a mule” is something that needs to be conveyed nationally – unlike trying to educate people about specific cyber attacks, which is almost mission impossible given the fact it’s such a moving target, educating them for common sense and general awareness is probably not going to be a waste of time.
