Dear Parents/Carers

Money Mule and Money Laundering

King Henry School feel it is important to keep parents up to date on any concerns or issues raised within the local community.  It has been brought to our attention that there has been a worrying increase in the number ‘money mule’ scams targeting young people have more than doubled in the last twelve months, a record rise over a one-year period.  

Police are working in partnership with many schools across London to combat this issue.  If you think you or your child has been affected by this, please contact Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040 or visit www.actionfraud.police.uk to report.

King Henry School will be addressing this subject in our assemblies, over the next few weeks, with students across all year groups to make them aware and educate how to keep themselves safe.
