Public funds investigators arrested a gang of four, including two Nigerians, specialized in stealing money from individuals, companies and banks via the internet.
The gang is allegedly led by a Nigerian filmmaker.
The gang was discovered when an Egyptian businessman reported that a Chinese company transferred him US$20,000 that went to the filmmaker’s bank account in Audi Bank.
The filmmaker's accomplice, an unemployed Egyptian, was convicted in 30 cases with a total of 18 years in prison.
During the arrest, investigators seized checks and receipts for more than 500 million euros.
