U.K. student had $500,000 in bank account


UPI News Service, 10/09/2005 

Police said an 18-year-old high school boarding school student in Britain found with $500,000 in her bank account may have been linked to organized crime.

Tamara Platash, who attended the Sherborne School for Girls in Dorset this year, aroused suspicion at her bank when she tried to transfer $352,000 to an account in China, reported the Sunday Telegraph.

The bank alerted police, the transfer was blocked and the account frozen. The student and her mother were arrested when the mom, a businesswoman, came to England for the school's prize-giving ceremony at the end of term.

Prosecutors, who believed the money may be linked to Russian organized crime, let the women go because they said there was insufficient evidence to prosecute them.
