Airman Faces Fraud Charges After CABS Mistakenly Credited Him With $230 000

Air Force of Zimbabwe operations officer Arnold Lethale Pullen appeared before Harare magistrate Edwin Marecha facing fraud charges. This comes after his bank, Central African Building Society (CABS) mistakenly credited his account with $230 000 in September last year. Pullen allegedly transferred the money to his friends and family’s accounts before asking them to transfer the money to his Steward Bank account. The error was discovered when the bank was carrying out a system upgrade.

Pullen was remanded in custody pending his bail hearing. A few weeks back, a student nurse was sentenced to twelve years in prison after he spent $54 000 which had been mistakenly credited into his account by the same bank.
