A man who was convicted of money from multiple people has been sentenced to two and a half years in prison by the Pékes County Court for commercial fraud, according to the Pékes District Court. The man made calls from randomly selected numbers on the phone provided to the detainees.
The callers were told that the mobile service provider’s system had failed and that the subscriber would need to send codes via SMS to the phone number provided by the respondent to help fix the error. In fact, the deceived victims increased the phone credit used by the accused, sometimes by 15,000 HUF.
The man caused total damage of HUF 375,000 to dozens of victims. The accused committed the fraud in the summer of 2017. He was still serving his sentence at the time of suspicion, and in the meantime he was released and disappeared during the trial. An arrest warrant is still in place against him.
Al-Oud Al-Muldeed was sentenced to two and a half years in prison for commercial fraud during his trial in his absence on Tuesday. You cannot be released conditionally.
The defendant’s attorney appealed the acquittal, so the judgment is not final.
