Remember the Finnish teen who stole from a Maltese online casino? Well, on September 3 Monday, he has been convicted on charges of aggravated fraud as a minor in Häme District Court for having stolen hundreds of thousands of Euros after discovering an unknown glitch on the casino site between April and May 2017.
The teen got a 20-month suspended sentence. The court also ordered that he pay back the €132,000 he stole plus the amount of €3,000 for gambling legal fees.
The father got a 5-month suspended sentence and ordered to repay €14,500 which had been transferred to his account, while the mother received a 60-day suspended sentence for aggravated money laundering charges. The court also ordered the mom to pay back the €2,300 and forfeit the motorcycle worth more than €5,000 which was allegedly bought using the stolen money.
Apparently the teen got off luckily because of the fact that he was a minor (16 years old) during the time the crimes were committed.
In the previous sources, it was originally reported that the scammed amount was over €250,000, but the teen was ordered to repay €132,000 and €3,000 to cover the gambling operator's legal fees.
