Two Moscow-based employees of the customer service of Sberbank, Russia’s biggest lender, are accused of stealing 40m roubles ($700,000) from one of the bank’s clients.
The suspects withdrew the money from the customer’s account several days before they were arrested. Maryam Dadasheva, 26, and her sister Tamilla Dadasheva, 22, were nabbed when they were buying a Ferrari sports car worth more than 7m roubles ($122,000), according to Russian business daily Kommersant.
The sisters, who worked in different Sberbank branches in Moscow and specialised in services for small-sized businesses, planned to steal 4bn roubles ($70m) more, Kommersant said.
