According to investigators, the man transferred 19,000 rubles from a Sberbank card to an account at VTB Bank using the Sberbank Online application. Due to a technical error, the money was not debited from the first account, but the amount was still credited to the second card.
– Having discovered a mistake in a mobile application, the man decided to use it to his advantage. He made 116 such transfers and illegally received 2,204,000 rubles to an account with VTB Bank, the prosecutor’s office of the Samara Region explained.
In order not to arouse suspicion, the Samara citizen transferred part of the money to the accounts of acquaintances, and spent the rest on paying for real estate and buying various goods.
The criminal case was sent to court.
Now the cunning resident faces 10 years in prison.
