Yekaterinburg resident involved in criminal suit for forgery

February 24, 2014. Criminal proceedings with charges based on Article 327 (Part 1) of the Russian Federation Criminal Code (forgery, production, or sale of altered documents, state awards, stamps, seals, or forms) were instituted against a resident of Yekaterinburg recently.

Sverdlovsk Region division of the Federal Service of Court Officers reports that the man, who had 500,000 RUR worth of debts in the form of bank loans, provided the enforcement officer with a credit card account statement and a copy of the payment order. According to these documents, a portion of the debt to one of the banks had been allegedly paid off.

The bank, however, denied receiving the money when asked to confirm the payment by the enforcement officer. The officer then filed a report for the investigator of Ordzhonikidzevsky District division of court officers.

The pre-investigation check that was conducted upon the reception of the report proved that fake stamps were pressed onto the papers. The payment orders were actually designed by the debtor on a computer. All the pre-investigation files were directed to Yekaterinburg police division of Russia’s Internal Affairs Ministry.

All in all, over 60 such crimes were detected in Sverdlovsk Region in 2013, with criminal proceedings instituted later.
