Special project Financial literacy

In Yakutsk, a local resident faces criminal punishment for large-scale fraud. She took other people's money and, not fulfilling her obligations under the contract, disposed of them at her discretion for personal purposes.

According to the investigation, an acquaintance of hers turned to the woman who works as a realtor. He was denied a mortgage, so he asked her, as the general director of a commercial organization, to help him in choosing and buying an apartment.

According to the press service of the republican prosecutor's office, the man said that he had one million rubles for the initial payment. The woman, being in a difficult financial situation, decided to steal the money, and signed a service agreement with an acquaintance. He gave her 500 thousand, and then the same amount.

Having received the money, the realtor spent it on her personal goals. It turned out that she has a criminal record for stealing money through fraud. Now the criminal case against her has been sent to court, but the woman does not admit her guilt.

As the expert of the information portal Zhilfin.rf (within the framework of the project of the Ministry of Finance of Russia on financial literacy) Lolla Kirillova explains, the only way to at least somehow protect yourself in such cases is to require the receipt of a receipt from the person who receives the money.

“The receipt will confirm the fact of accepting money for any purpose, and not as a gift. The law enforcer, that is, the court, will accept the receipt as evidence of the conclusion of the contract, if it is correctly drawn up. It is necessary to indicate the passport and information about the place of residence of the person taking the money, the amount and purpose of the transfer of money, to set the date, ”explains Lolla Kirillova.

Also, the expert advises to require a receipt from the person taking the money in obtaining finance. If a person turns out to be a fraud, in court it will be possible to recover this amount from him.
