ĐỒNG NAI — A bank teller of the Vietnam Joint Stock Commercial Bank for Industry and Trade’s (Vietinbank) Long Thành Branch has been arrested for allegedly appropriating billions of Vietnamese đồng.
The Tuổi trẻ (Youth) newspaper reported on Thursday that bank teller Trần Thị Thùy Dung was arrested on Wednesday evening after customers reported that they could not withdraw money from their accounts at the bank because there was no money left in them.
As soon as customers reported the missing funds, the bank managers discovered that Dung had falsified documents to steal customers’ money. She reportedly spent the stolen money on personal things.
Investigation police from the Ministry of Public Secretary have requested victims to assist in the investigation. — VNS
