A bank account emptied at a BCV subsidary


At a BCV Swiss subsidiary, Piguet Galland, client's money was paid to an account abroad provided by an imposter via emails and phone calls, where the only form of authentication was a question about account owner's birth date.

Besides, the bank refuses a full compensation and wants "to settle". The stolen amount is about 1M.
The bank last year profit was about CHF 3M :-)
