Surgut financial pyramid creators face 10 years in prison after stealing 35 million rubles
A criminal investigation against the two founders of a financial pyramid has been completed in Surgut. In several years, the fraudsters managed to steal more than 35 million rubles from local citizens. A total of 69 people can be considered victims of this machination scheme.
According to investigators, the accused – a 30-year-old man and a 34-year-old woman – committed financial fraud through a limited liability company, which was registered on forged documents. The swindlers opened an office in Surgut, where they were running this criminal business for a few years. They invited people to make deposits in return for interests.
The perpetrators promised to fulfill the loan obligations of citizens before banks upon receiving from them 30% of such loans in money terms. The investigation established that the crooks then refused to fulfill the provisions of these contract, stole all the money, and used it for their own needs.
A criminal case is currently underway against the founders of the pyramid, they are charged under art. 159 para. 4 of the Russian Criminal Code (fraud). The swindlers are facing 10 years in prison and a fine. The female criminal signed the written pledge not to leave the country, the male criminal was taken into custody.
