The Director of Bank’s Transaction Department Defrauds 14 billion VND: Three More Suspects Arrested.

In connection with the case of a bank branch director in Quang Nam province who embezzled 14 billion VND, the Investigative Agency of the Quang Nam Provincial Police has decided to prosecute and arrest three additional suspects.


Nguyen Van Dung (45 years old), resident of Duy Xuyen district, Quang Nam province; Nguyen Thi Hien (52 years old), resident of Thang Binh district, Quang Nam province; and Nguyen Thien An (30 years old), resident of Hai Chau district, Da Nang city were arrested for impersonation, fraud, and misappropriation of property.

Additional persons related to the case have been indicted by the investigating agency.

Among the three suspects, Nguyen Thien An is an employee of the Nam Phuoc Transaction Office, An Binh Commercial Joint Stock Bank. An is subordinate to Ha Hai Dang (35 years old), resident of Hoa Xuan ward, Cam Le district, Da Nang city and the Director of the Nam Phuoc Transaction Office, An Binh Commercial Joint Stock Bank. Ha Hai Dang has been indicted and temporarily detained for fraud and misappropriation of property in early January.

The investigating agency determined that, in the period from 2019 to 2022, in addition to his main job as the Director of the Nam Phuoc Transaction Office, An Binh Commercial Joint Stock Bank, Hai Dang also engaged in real estate business.

Dang provided false information, stating that he needed to borrow money to complete bank renewal procedures, but in reality used this money to repay debts and invest in real estate for profit. Subsequently, Dang was unable to repay the debts. The investigating agency determined that the total amount of money misappropriated by Hai Dang from the victims was 14 billion VND.

The investigating agency read the order to temporarily detain Ha Hai Dang for fraud and misappropriation of property.

During the expanded investigation of the case, the investigating agency determined that Nguyen Van Dung and Nguyen Thi Hien aided and abetted Dang in the commission of fraud and misappropriation of property.

These two individuals provided false information that made the victims trust Dang and hand over money, which Dang then misappropriated. In addition, Dang instructed Nguyen Thien An to forge documents related to the bank renewal procedures in order to deceive the victims and misappropriate money.

The case is currently being further investigated by the authorities, Quang Nam Provincial Police.
