Don’t let others use your bank account

If you let others use your bank account or your Swish for moving, withdrawing or transferring money, you may be committing the criminal offence money laundering.

Criminals want to use your account to hide money originating from proceeds such as drug trafficking or frauds.

It doesn’t matter that you don’t know where the money comes from or whom it will be sent to – you’re still responsible.

You risk being sentenced to fines or imprisonment. In addition, you may have to repay a much larger amount than the one you transferred. Your bank account may be blocked, and you may have difficulties getting a mobile subscription or loans.
