If you get stranded in the transit zone of an airport in the US, stay away from O'Hare, LAX, or Dulles. Denver is nice but it's out in the middle of nowhere.

  

Yes, Denver is in the middle of nowhere and presumably has a huge government detention center beneath it. If you stay there, you might be staying longer than you thought.

I thought one was innocent till proven guilty in the USA? You have already convicted him. Do you work for a bank?

  


It was pretty clear from the article what he did, and no, I do not work for a bank. Maybe in Russia it is normal to change bank documents and lie on legal paperwork. Here it is not.

It was a contract. Either party to a contract can legally change its terms. If the other party accepts the contract, acknowledging or not the revised terms, the contract is legally in force. Is this not true? This is also the purpose of 'small print' - to deceive the other party into believing the terms are what they are not. Small print is placed into contracts every day. A person needs to read the small print before accepting the contract. This is what the man did - he introduced small print and the bank accepted the contract.

Agarkov did what the banks do to people, he put his amendments in small print. Does it look identical? Maybe! Was it his intent to dupe the bank? Maybe, but the bank will never prove it. In the US, it would be a peace of cake for a good lawyer to acquit him and the criminal charges would have to be filed by the bank separately. I want to see how this will play out. Good luck to Agarkov!

LOL; he better get out fast.

It may just be me, but I think this guy Dimitry Agarkov is in the wrong, and he may have lied and changed documents at the bank, and feels proud of himself for doing so, but in the long run, the real truth is that he committed fraud with the intent to defraud the bank.

I live in the US, and you cannot just change bank documents here, and think you will get away with it.

I think he has ample reason to fear for his life, and not because he did something right. It is because he did something wrong.
