Bank teller accused of swindling thousands of euros from customers


The corruption prosecutor for Thessaloniki, Achilleas Zisis, on Thursday brought criminal charges of fraud, embezzlement and forgery against a bank branch in the northern port city and a senior employee of the branch who is alleged to have extracted 850,000 euros from 10 bank customers between 2013 and 2015.

According to sources, the woman is believed to have convinced savers to sign up for investment programs on the promise that they would benefit from better interest rates.

She is subsequently alleged to have forged the customers’ signatures before making cash withdrawals from their accounts.
