A man in his 40s will soon appear in Oslo District Court charged with gross fraud. The man is said to have obtained car loans of more than NOK 11 million by using someone else’s BankID.
According to the indictment, the fraud allegedly started in December 2016, and the most recent case took place in January 2020.
According to the indictment, by abusing the BankID of 13 different people, the man enticed a number of banks to pay him out a total of 30 car loans in large sums. One of the car loans was over NOK 750,000.
One of the victim’s BankID was misused for ten different car loans.
“The fraud resulted in significant financial damage, it has been committed on several occasions or over a longer period of time, and it has had a systematic or organized character,” the prosecution wrote in the indictment.
The man is also charged with possession of cocaine.
The case will be heard in Oslo District Court on June 7, and six court days have been set aside for processing the case.
