The Criminal Investigations Division spokesperson, Charles Twine Mansio, the four tried to steal Shs 43 million from the Stanbic-held bank account.
‘’It is alleged that on 16th April 2021, the suspects hacked into Gen Saleh’s email account and gave an express instruction to the bank manager to effect payment on telephone numbers 0704799395, 0707382702, 0750669242, and 0705588790 through the bank to wallet facility,’’ Twine said.
Twine said that the bank manager became suspicious immediately after receiving the email.
“The bank manager became suspicious because their client had never carried out any monetary transactions in such a manner therefore he looked for proof that it is their client.”
When contacted, Gen Salim Saleh confirmed that the email came in fraudulently. He had not sent such an email to the bank. Through his military advisor, Gen Saleh filed a case at the Special Investigations Division. An investigation that soon ended in the arrest of four.
At the time of the arrest, a statement said police found the four suspects with 613 fraudulently registered sim cards. They also had computer laptops that authorities suspect they used to defraud other people using the same methods.
The CID spokesperson also said they retrieved exhibits and experts will inspect them scientifically for any information that could be evidence.
