One billion rubles stolen from Peresvet Bank client in Moscow
The victim was not able to receive interest on his deposit and filed a complaint to the police.
A Peresvet Bank client lost 1 billion rubles ($10 million + more than €6 million). He learned about it when he failed to receive interest on his deposit and filed a complaint to the police.
The Moscow resident told the police he had more than $10 million and more than €6 million on his bank account he opened in 2015. In 2017, he decided to use his multimillion savings but discovered that someone had withdrawn them without him knowing.
The robbed billionaire suspects it were employees of the Bank who stole his money.
The Orthodox bank Peresvet is a joint-stock commercial company concerned with charity and moral development of the Russian Federation. The bank is notorious for being ‘problematic’; it is not the first time its clients have issues receiving their money.
In early November 2017, Basmanny Court of Moscow has satisfied the motion brought by the Main Investigations Directorate in the City of Moscow of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation (ICR) and remanded Aleksander Shukyurov, Director of the Capital Renovation Directorate State Budgetary Institution of Moscow, in custody. The head of the institution subordinate to the Department of Capital Renovation of the City of Moscow that had acted as the client in tenders worth dozens of billions of rubles is suspected of swindling on an especially large scale.
