Bank executive flees after stealing huge sum from customer

HCMC – An Eximbank executive has fled overseas after he appropriated VND245 billion (US$10.8 million) from a VIP customer using falsified documents, according to local newspaper reports.

Le Nguyen Hung, deputy director of the HCMC branch of the Vietnam Export Import Bank (Eximbank), was found to swindle Chu Thi Binh, a VIP client of the bank, who had been depositing a large amount of money at the branch since 2007. Hung, along with other Eximbank staff, made various visits to Binh’s home to provide updates on her savings accounts. She even authorized Hung to conduct certain transactions on her behalf.

Hung took advantage of her trust in him to falsify documents to withdraw money from her savings accounts. She once checked her bank accounts in early 2017 and found VND245 billion being withdrawn from her accounts without her knowledge.

The bank’s general director, Le Van Quyet, was quoted by Nguoi Lao Dong newspaper as confirming the news and saying, “Eximbank has filed a lawsuit against Le Nguyen Hung, and the board of directors has adopted a resolution in which the bank would fully reimburse Binh when there is a court order in this regard.”

However, Binh demanded the bank reimburse her without delay.

Investigators at the Ministry of Public Security have issued an international arrest warrant for Hung on alleged charges of appropriation
