HÀ NỘI — Three people have been arrested accused of using fake documents to steal cash from banks.
The trio are alleged to have used elaborate forgeries of identity cards, residency cards and even payslips in a bid to con the banks out of millions đồng.
Tây Hồ District Police in Hà Nội have arrested Phạm Văn Sáng, 28, who also used the name Bùi Tiến Trung, from the central province of Thanh Hóa, Vũ Thị Hải Ninh, 39 – often called Bùi Thị Dình – from Hà Nội and Nguyễn Hữu Hoàng, 27 – also known as Hoàng Anh – from Hà Nội.
On October 1, police received a letter from the Vietnam Prosperity Joint Stock Commercial Bank (VPBank) in Đống Đa District claiming that Ninh tried to appropriate money from the bank.
Sáng is also accused of using fake papers to take money from different banks and credit organisations since the beginning of this year.
Police say the amount stolen was more than VNĐ300 million (US$13,000).
