ABN Amro was victim of digital robbery

The unnamed bank which fell victim to a €5.6m digital robbery was ABN Amro, the Telegraaf reports.

In total, 13 people have been arrested in connection with the embezzlement of funds, some of which has since been recovered from foreign bank accounts.
The Dutch banking association VNG told the paper it is virtually impossible to steal money from a bank without inside help, but this case is thought not to involve any ABN Amro workers, the paper said.
