YEKATERINBURG, November 14 (Itar-Tass) — Police in the Chelyabinsk region arrested the criminal group which had illegally cashed more than 100 million roubles, the press service of the regional police department told Itar-Tass on Wednesday.
The detainees were identified as Denis Borodin and Alexei Kolnogorov. They engaged in illegal banking and had no special license. The wrongdoers used the bank data of flight-by-night firms to which natural persons and legal entities remitted funds.
The money then was placed on bank cards of low-income persons who had agreed to have those cards issued to their names for a mere 500 roubles.
The criminals withdraw the money from the cards to return it to the original owners. They charged 3 to 5 percent of the sum for their services.
"In all, the turnover on fly-by-night firms' settlement accounts reached over 100 million roubles," the press service said.
Criminal proceedings were opened over "illegal banking on a large scale."
