Businessman convicted of $2 million int'l trade 'sting'

The Tel Aviv District Court convicted businessman Uri Resh on Tuesday of a series of sophisticated fraudulent "sting" schemes that netted him over $2 million dollars from unsuspecting international electronics suppliers.
Resh was convicted alongside Yehoshua Shlush, Erlado Farizi, and Avi Kalmaro of forgery, fraud and customs and tax offenses committed over a decade ago. Judge Uri Shoham found that Resh was behind a sophisticated scheme involving fake letters of credit (LC), in which computers and electronics suppliers from several countries were swindled out of millions of dollars.
