"While one criminals plundered financial establishments, others, like Panikovsky, came to a conclusion that "theft" is safer than "robbery", - writes LB. - On October 24 on Volhynia employees of one of commercial banks who together with accomplices brought out of bank of 17 million UAH were detained. Clerks gave out the credits on the security of three land plots which cost was overestimated by 10 times. Quite recently - on November 23 - in Kiev the staff of financial structure, according to fictitious credit agreements the 6,8 million which have stolen at work of UAH was detained.

In only 10 months 2009 the militia opened more than 40 criminal cases against the staff of banks. The general damage from their plunders in tens times exceeds losses from attacks. If 62,5 million were stolen. UAH, it is stolen - only 1,5 million UAH".
"The staff of banks is armed with the seals and forms - the weapon much more powerful, than guns - lighters or axes", - writes LB and gives an example: in Donetsk employees of one of financial establishments developed the simple scheme: giving out the credit for car purchase, specified the credit sum, slightly big, than car cost. Clerks pocketed kickbacks, the scheme successfully worked on 38 clients on whom it was succeeded to earn 1,7 million UAH. Similar fraud was used by the chief of one of bank offices in Lviv - it managed to give out 429 credits in two years and to appropriate 3,2 million UAH. Those who can't give out the credits, try other ways:to Zakarpatye the staff of "card" office let out credit cards on 21 false persons, and then withdrew money in ATMs. Before arrest they managed to remove 328 thousand UAH
