A 41-year-old man from An Giang Province in southern Vietnam has returned VND402.7 million (US$16,091) to its owner after it was mistakenly transferred to his bank account.

The provincial police's division of cybersecurity and hi-tech crime prevention on Thursday said that it had assisted Nguyen Thanh Trung, a local resident, to return the amount to its owner.

Trung said the money was transferred to his account on Monday but there was no information about the owner.

Trung, concerned about hi-tech crimes, reported the case to the An Giang division of cybersecurity and hi-tech crime prevention, seeking their assistance in returning the money.

The division contacted the bank where Trung opened his account. The bank later found that the money was transferred from an account opened at a transaction office of Vietnam Export Import Commercial Joint Stock Bank in Tay Ho District, Hanoi.

The An Giang police department advises residents who mistakenly transfer money to other accounts or receive money from unknown people to report such transactions to the local police. 

Those receiving mistakenly-transferred money but refusing to return it may face criminal charges for appropriating assets. 

They should not return the money by themselves without a witness to avoid hi-tech crimes, according to the An Giang police.
