German Robin Hood Banker

November 25th, 2009

A Robin Hood in real life?
You gotta be kidding me right? Apparently not….
In Germany, a bank employee secretly transferred money from rich to poor clients.
Sadly the 62-year old woman was given a 22-month prison term for this act of kindness. She could have faced a 4-year sentence, but the court was being nice because she confessed immediately and did not profit personally.
Between December 2003 and February 2005, the German ‘Robin Hood Banker’ moved some €7.6 million in 117 transfers.
She did not take any money for herself. Her only motive was to prevent poorer clients from seeing their accounts closed. And get this… the woman is now reimbursing the millions lost by the bank, reportedly from a small retirement pension!

    Good thing she is paying them back. She should be locked up for life.
