Investigators of the Fraud Division arrested a suspect yesterday (Tuesday), a former employee of the Israel Postal Authority, on suspicion of committing alleged crimes of fraud, receiving something fraudulently under aggravating circumstances, theft by an employee from an employer, conspiracy to commit a crime and other crimes.

The ongoing investigation by the Israel Police began following a complaint by the victim's guardian, regarding a suspect who at the time worked as a clerk at the Israel Post Office, when he took advantage of his authority by virtue of his position and acted systematically on several occasions, for the financial exploitation of the victim in his 80s. The suspect, who contacted the victim for months as part of a service he provided to him as a postal worker, acted during the period with great sophistication and led the victim to sell an apartment he owned, and then made a withdrawal of funds in the estimated amount of half a million NIS from the victim's account at the postal bank.

According to the suspicion, the suspect's acquaintance with the victim began by virtue of the suspect's position at the time at the Postal Bank, which allegedly allowed him to carry out banking operations without the victim's knowledge, thereby actually taking control of the victim's money and using his authority and position for his personal benefit. Today (Wednesday) a hearing was held at the Tel Aviv Magistrate's Court in the suspect's case and his detention was extended until July 15.
