Adding even more mystery to the missing Malaysia Airline flight MH370, it has been discovered that over US$33,000 has been stolen from passenger bank accounts that died in the ill-fated flight that went missing in March 2014 and has yet to be found.
A bank in the city of Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia reported that withdrawals and bank activity had been made on July 18, 2014 from the accounts of four of the passengers on flight MH370 – 5 months after the flight went missing. Withdrawals were made from 3 of the deceased passengers’ accounts an put into an account of a fourth dead passenger.
The money in the fourth passengers account was then withdrawn from several ATM machines in Klang Valley.
Authorities are reviewing CCTV bank footage to try and determine who committed the offense.
