Former bank staffer in court after client fraud

A FORMER First National Bank employee is expected to plead guilty to charges of fraud and money laundering after allegedly defrauding an FNB client who requested his assistance last year.

Sylvester Kilian, who worked as a sales and service consultant at FNB’s Summerstrand Village shopping centre branch, allegedly transferred R177 360 between April 29 and November 12.

According to the charge sheet, he met the woman at the branch where she had requested him to assist her because she had difficulty in using FNB’s electronic banking services.

“She trusted him to such an extent that she provided him with her unique username and password which enabled him to access her bank accounts and perform electronic banking transactions on her behalf,” the charge sheet states.
