Man defrauds HSBC
Carl Vella, a 28-year-old from Mosta, admitted to defrauding HSBC out of €27,000.
Mr. Vella, a former employee at the Swatar call centre, which services UK customers, was given a two-year suspended sentence for four years as a result. He also admitted to money laundering. Mr.Vella took the money in July and the preceeding months, after learning the necessary information to do so through software.
Magistrate Consuelo Scerri Herrera ordered him to pay the money back to the bank within six months.
The fraud happened in the UK and not in Malta.
