The Vologda Regional Court examined the verdict of the Great Ustyug District Court against Oleg Markov.

Recall that in 2015, the man organized the company MSO Invest Group. Markov called depositors to himself, and in return promised them large interest due to trading on the exchange. At the end of May 2018, the organizer suddenly stopped in touch. Then he wrote a short message that the company could not pay funds yet, because Her accounts were arrested. The swindler tried to hide, but he was detained in another city.

Oleg Markov was accused of fraudulent embezzlement of more than 200 million rubles. According to the investigation, the victims are 382 people. In July this year, Markov received 6 years in a general regime colony. The fraud did not agree with the verdict. He considered him too harsh. The lawyer of the accused appealed.

On December 14, the verdict was considered by the Vologda Regional Court on appeal. The court granted the complaints of the victims and collected from Oleg Markov in their favor the material damage caused. In the rest, the verdict was left unchanged, the appeal of the convicted person and his defender is not satisfied, the united press service of regional courts reports.

We add that this is not the only financial pyramid in Veliky Ustyug. In 2019, the next company deceived its customers. We are talking about the organization Cozy House. Initially, she positioned herself as a real estate agency. However, the company also had a second option – issuing loans for maternity capital. Here, the company's founders acted according to the classical scenario. From each contribution, they promised to pay good interest. Previously, news 35.rf wrote in detail about this.
