Slovak woman wanted for attempted loan fraud

A Slovak woman identified as Denisa B., aged 37, who is the chair of the board of directors of a joint-stock company, allegedly attempted to fraudulently attain a bank loan worth 210 million USD (about €170 million). An investigator of the National Criminal Agency (NAKA) uncovered the fraud before the Swiss bank loaned her the sum, the Slovak media reported on September 11.

A Slovak woman identified as Denisa B., aged 37, who is the chair of the board of directors of a joint-stock company, allegedly attempted to fraudulently attain a bank loan worth 210 million USD (about €170 million). An investigator of the National Criminal Agency (NAKA) uncovered the fraud before the Swiss bank loaned her the sum, the Slovak media reported on September 11.

Spokesperson of the Police Presidium Andrea Dobiášová told the TASR newswire that the condition for receiving the loan was to pay a one-time fee of 6 million USD (€4.7 million) into an account with the bank. “She allegedly pretended to fulfil this condition by having sent ten fraudulent cross-border payment orders by email,” Dobiášová said, adding that the woman also used falsified documents to confirm her credibility and reliability.

Police made two house searches and confiscated notebooks, documents and stamps. The woman has been charged with the crime of attempted loan fraud and now faces 15 years in prison, TASR wrote. However, since she could not be found at her permanent residence, and did not appear when summoned by police, a warrant has been issued for her arrest.
