Belarusian drew out Br1.7 billion in almost a year

Using a bank system failure, the 32-year-old worker drew out over Br1.7 billion from his bank card starting from April, 2013 until January 2014.

The man kept drawing out money but it did not register in the bank system due to a technical failure, Interfax-West reports.  It turned out that the sum on his account never reduced and the man kept using the same sum for hundreds of times! The ‘lucky man’ had to understand that it was not his money as he could not have so much, the police stressed.

The technical failure was revealed by the bank and they complained to the police.

There is no information about the ways the worker sued the money. He is facing from 3 to 10 years of imprisonment and confiscation of property now.
