Three charged with stealing millions of shekels by impersonating bank employees

Three Israelis have been arrested on suspicion of scamming hundreds of Israelis out of millions of shekels by posing as bank officials.

Moshe Dekula, 25, Kobi Peretz, 23, and Yarin Yamin, 21, from Yavne and Holon, are accused of sending their victims messages via text or online, including through dummy websites meant to emulate bank sites, according to Hebrew-language media reports.

Among the charges is that the three used hacked bank data to fraudulently withdraw cash from victims’ accounts using couriers at ATM terminals, Channel 12 news reports.

The trio are accused of stealing over $2 million, according to Ynet.

The arrests cap off a two-month undercover investigation.
