Financiers scammers cheated 340 mln rubles out of depositors in Tatarstan
In Republic of Tatarstan, two financiers scammers, who had cheated 340 million rubles out of 1200 customers of a credit and financial cooperative, have been detained.
According to law enforcement bodies, the two detainees used to profit from naive and gullible citizens: they had created a monetary organization and attracted customers into it, promising them up to 177% per annum on deposits. As a result, over 1200 customers became their victims. In total, the fraudsters received about 340 million rubles.
The scammers have managed to open offices of their credit and financial cooperative in several cities, namely Kazan, Almetyevsk, and Naberezhnye Chelny.
The police also added that scam victims have not received either the promised interest on their deposits or the deposits themselves. The scammers have managed to spend part of the money on real estate and cars, which they bought in the Moscow region.
To date, both offenders have been arrested; the materials in their criminal case have been referred to the Moskovsky Court of Kazan, where they will be considered on its merits.
A large-scale purge of thieves in law, which started shortly after Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan’s coming to power, continues in Armenia. After receiving threats of arrests, thieves were taken in custody for carrying weapons and drugs.
However, the thief, who is currently dividing the spheres of influence in Ukraine’s Odessa region with Antimoz Kukhilava through his representatives, has been sentenced in absentia. Mindiya Goradze is not in Georgia at the moment.
