Sumitomo Mitsui Trust Bank has announced that it has dismissed the customer as a disciplinary measure, saying that an employee in his thirties had taken a fictitious campaign and had taken the customer's funds of about 370 million yen.

According to the announcement, a male employee in his thirties at Sumitomo Mitsui Trust Bank offered a fictitious deal to a customer, saying that there was a campaign with a high interest rate, and a total of about 370 million yen was taken from 20 people. ..

It was discovered last month at the request of the bank that the bank is preparing to file a complaint with the police as well as dismissing the employee as a disciplinary measure.

From October 2016 until the employee was dismissed, he worked at the Shin-Yurigaoka branch in Kawasaki City, Kanagawa Prefecture, and at the branch in Gifu City from 2011 to 2015, so the bank will continue to investigate. We will continue to work on elucidating the whole picture.

In addition, after contacting and apologizing to the damaged customers individually, we will work on compensation for the damage.

Sumitomo Mitsui Trust Bank said, "We sincerely apologize to our customers and all concerned. We will work to prevent recurrence and restore trust by strengthening our internal control system."
