HA NOI — Police in the Cuu Long (Mekong) Delta province of Can Tho on Tuesday prosecuted and detained a staff member of a joint-stock commercial bank's local branch for fraud.
Nguyen Tan Anh Vu, 31, the head of the branch's customer care, was accused of abusing his position to appropriate money from nine patrons. The total money taken was alleged to be nearly VND8 billion (US$380,000).
Initial inspection showed that Vu pretended to borrow money from acquaintances with a promised interest of 0.7 per cent a day or 2 per cent a month. — VNS
