It was in March last year that a woman received a message on Facebook. There was a person who claimed to be her childhood friend and wanted her to transfer over SEK 15 00 to an account, which she also did. The woman later realized that it was not her childhood friend and shortly thereafter contacted the police to tell her that she had been cheated.

The money should instead have ended up on another woman's account, which is now being prosecuted for money laundering.

Ended up on another woman's account

To prove that the accused woman was aware that her account would be used to manage the SEK 15,000, conversations are on Facebook. There are also transactions and bank statements that, according to the prosecution, show that the woman made a transfer of the money between her accounts.

The woman herself denies the crime.
