It was revealed that a person working at Microsoft between 2016 and 2018 stole $10 million from the company. The man, who could not escape justice while making plans on his own, was sentenced to 9 years in prison and to pay $ 8.3 million in compensation. Microsoft did not make a statement on the issue.
It turned out that there was a great theft on the US-based technology giant Microsoft front. According to a lawsuit filed in the USA, it was revealed that an engineer named Volodymyr Kvashuk, who worked for Microsoft between 2016 and 2018, stole $ 10 million from the company. The court ordered a 9-year prison sentence and $ 8.3 million in compensation to the rude man he ate.
Law enforcement officers, who examined Kvashuk, concluded that the man was involved in 18 different crimes. Five of these crimes were electronic fraud, six were money laundering, two were using fake identities, two were filing fake tax returns, one was email fraud, one was access device fraud, and one was unauthorized access to a protected computer.
Kvashuk stole Microsoft’s monetary services and sold them online
According to the information in the case files, Kvashuk has been stealing Microsoft’s testing services such as a digital gift card with money value until the incident was discovered and fired in 2018. The man, who also resells the services he has stolen, has millions of dollars in this way. The former Microsoft employee, who included his colleagues in the incident in order not to understand what they were doing, seized the e-mail accounts of three colleagues and carried out various transactions through these addresses. Kvashuk, who thinks he’s awake, thinks that this way his colleagues will be caught and nothing will happen to him.
Not content with just these, the brazen thief also blames his friends for internal investigations. In addition, according to the information in the court documents, Kvashuk does not regret what he did. The court board says that Kvashuk’s statements and general mood do not feel the slightest remorse.
Kvashuk used Bitcoin to avoid understanding what he was doing
The former Microsoft employee, who thinks that what he has done with his own plans cannot be understood, transfers the money he has obtained from the services he has sold to his account via Bitcoin. In the determinations made by the court board, it has been understood that the transfer of Bitcoin worth $ 2.8 million was made during the seven-month theft. In addition, Kvashuk showed a certain amount of money as a gift from a relative to avoid legal proceedings.
According to the court panel, Volodymyr Kvashuk, a Ukrainian citizen, bought a house worth $ 1.6 million with the money he stole from Microsoft. The authorities, who say that this house is on a lake and is quite luxurious, determined that Kvashuk, who is not satisfied with this, also bought a Tesla brand car worth 160 thousand dollars. But the scales of justice did not leave Kvashuk with him.
