MOSCOW, August 14 (RIA Novosti) – A Russian man who tricked a bank into signing a deal with him on his own terms has reached an out-of-court settlement with the credit institution, whose owner previously threatened to have him jailed for fraud, the bank said Wednesday.
“Conflict is unconstructive, so we decided to end it in a gentlemanly fashion, mutually dropping complaints,” Tinkoff Credit Systems president Oliver Hughes said in a statement on the bank’s website.
The bank cited the other party, Voronezh resident Dmitry Agarkov, as saying his trick was “a joke that went too far.”
