April 04, 2024

A 41-year-old man from An Giang Province in southern Vietnam has returned VND402.7 million (US$16,091) to its owner after it was mistakenly transferred to his bank account. Trung said the money was transferred to his account on Monday but there was no information about the owner. Trung, concerned about hi-tech crimes, reported the case to the An Giang division of cybersecurity and hi-tech crime prevention, seeking their assistance in returning the money. Those receiving mistakenly-transferred money but refusing to return it may face criminal charges for appropriating assets. They should not return the money by themselves without a witness to avoid hi-tech crimes, according to the An Giang police.
