Bikers bilk bank for over half a million kroner
Two members of gangs with close ties to the Hells Angels twice tricked key employees of Danske Bank into believing that they were lawyers last August and managed to get them to transfer more than half a million kroner into a phony account. In both cases, an email was sent to a banker that represented the real lawyer asking them to deposit money into a client’s account. The con artists managed to convince the bank that they were solid and well-known customers. The police eventually caught both, and they have been tried and convicted of fraud in courts in Copenhagen and Glostrup. The money has not been recovered.
