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 In 2017, he decided to use his multimillion savings but discovered that someone had withdrawn them without him knowing.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.
Ismail Efendiev is suspected of exceeding authority in connection with the investigation of cases of detained earlier former First Deputy Prime Minister Ramazan Aliyev and nephew of the former head of Dagestan Askhabali Abdulatipov. Searches are being conducted at Efendiev's office and house.
The disappearance of an elderly Muscovite, who owns three rooms on Ostozhenka Street, and her disabled son, worried the neighbors, but the police refused to initiate criminal proceedings on their application. Housing in the elite area of the capital in the meantime was re-registered to a resident of St. Petersburg, who introduced herself as their relative.
