Frankfurt / Main (dpa / lhe) - The Frankfurt public prosecutor's office has brought charges against a woman who is said to have swindled a well-paid job at a private bank with forged diplomas. The 35-year-old woman is accused of serious fraud and forgery, as public prosecutor Nadja Niesen announced on Friday. In March 2018, the woman is said to have presented the fakes made using a color copier at an interview. Accordingly, she had obtained a bachelor's degree with the grade "very good" from the University of Hamburg and also successfully studied law at a Paris university.
According to Niesen, the accused worked for two years for a gross monthly salary of 5,700 euros at the private bank. In the course of this time, however, doubts about her performance apparently arose, prompting her superiors to investigate. After the end of the allegedly fraudulent cooperation, the damage caused by the wrongly paid salary amounted to 154,500 euros.
According to Niesen, the 35-year-old has confessed. It is not yet clear when the trial against her will take place at the Frankfurt district court.
