A 48-year-old Eindhoven resident has to go to jail for a year and a half for fraud. This sentence was handed down by the court recently.
The man scammed several customers out of a total of more than €600.000. He now has to pay compensation of thousands of euros to various victims.
The fraudster pretended to be as a financial institution’s advisor for many years. In this capacity, he managed people’s money and forged the paperwork. He would promise his clients a good old age arrangement. In the meantime, he diverted their money to bank accounts he had at his disposal.
The court proved that this fraud and forgery had been going on for eight years. According to the judge, the accused severely abused the trust the victims had in him.
