A 74-year-old woman from Smolyanka came to the duty station of the inter-municipal department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia “Vyazemsky” for help and said that more than 9,000 rubles had been stolen from her bank card.
It turned out that the “mobile bank” service was installed on the pensioner’s cell phone. According to the statement of the movement of money on the card, it was established that they were transferred using the application to another current account. At the same time, the woman did not perform any operations that day.
The police officers were several people who entered the applicant’s house and could use her phone. On that day, according to the applicant, an acquaintance came to visit her son. It turned out to be a 35-year-old local resident who had no previous convictions for theft.
He said that he took advantage of the moment while the applicant was distracted and with the help of a “mobile bank” transferred the money to his current account. Subsequently, he spent money on his own needs.
A criminal case was initiated under the article “Theft committed from a bank account, as well as in relation to electronic money.” Now he faces up to 6 years in prison. The investigation of the criminal case continues.
