HA NOI (VNS)– Pham Thi Thuy Hang, 27, was arrested in Tu Liem District's Phu Dien Commune for the alleged appropriation of VND13 billion (US$625,000), Ha Noi Police announced on Monday.
According to investigators, a man from Gia Lam District agreed to buy a SH motorbike from Hang, known as a motorbike trader, for VND90 million ($4,300) last September.
He paid her a deposit of more than VND3 million ($140) and she then fled with the money.
When arrested, Hang confessed to police that she had borrowed up to $625,000 from people around Ha Noi to do business but then ran away because she could not fulfil the agreements. — VNS
