In exchange for at least $100, Bhambri Kunal withdrew cash totalling more than $26,000 from Singapore bank accounts, which were sums later traced to three fraud victims in the United States.
The 26-year-old NRI, who first came to Singapore in 2018 to study, was jailed for nine weeks after he pleaded guilty to three counts of dealing with the benefits of criminal conduct.
Deputy Public Prosecutor Seah Ee Wei said that between February 2021 and March the same year, Singapore’s Commercial Affairs Department received information on fraudulent transfers involving three fraud victims in the US.The lawyer added that in early 2021, Rahul and Simar asked Bhambri to help them withdraw monies from local bank accounts by using automated teller machine cards. Bhambri agreed to help them. Between Feb 9 and March 3, 2021, he made withdrawals of more than $26,000 from bank accounts that did not belong to him.
