Money smuggled from Bank VTB 24 to Uralprivatbank accounts


14.08.2009. : public
Bank VTB 24 press service claims 3.8 million RUR was illegally transferred into Uralprivatbanks client accounts after this money had been stolen from Gelix Center for Democracy and Human Rights Promotions account in Bank VTB 24.


Bank VTB 24 Saint Petersburg branchs security service detected a suspicious transaction within the Bank-Client Online system on August 7, 2009. 3.8 million RUR was taken out of Gelix Centers account and was first transferred into another Bank VTB 24 customers account and then into client accounts at Uralprivatbank. Gelix Center was informed of this doubtful transaction at once, upon which the organization assured the bank officials the transaction was not authorized. Therefore Bank VTB 24 security staff contacted their Uralprivatbanks counterparts and had the accounts frozen, the banks website says.
