The suspect is now in custody for allegedly hacking into Neymar’s bank account multiple times in order to steal money.


A little about the topic

Brazilian police have arrested a hacker on suspicion of illegally gaining access to a Brazilian bank account and stealing over €35,000 from a PSG player. A 20-year-old man was taken into custody on Wednesday for defrauding bank customers, police said in a statement, confirming that the account in question belongs to the Brazilian. The suspect worked at an unnamed bank where the Brazilian footballer and his father, who serves as his son’s business manager, held accounts and were able to access their passwords through a branch colleague.

The police officer in charge of the case named the Brazilian footballer as the victim of a theft in an interview on a Brazilian TV show before explaining how the crime was committed. Fabio Pinheiro Lopes said what did this guy do? . He got his office colleague’s password and stole small amounts of money from famous people with high net worth. According to Lopes, these people didn’t notice. He transferred 10,000 reais [$1,912.59], then another of 10,000, then 20,000, then 50,000, bringing the total to 200,000.


The stolen funds have already been returned to Neymar

Fabio said Neymar’s father was likely the one who noticed and reported the theft, given his role in running his son’s non-hospital businesses. The officer also confirmed that the stolen funds had already been returned to the Brazilian, adding that when they found out, they called the bank. The bank compensated the damage to the victim and found out who was behind him.

The Brazilian footballer’s press office was contacted by Reuters about the incident, but he has yet to publicly respond to the case. Neymar is currently out with an injury at Paris Saint-Germain but could be in line for a return to Pochettino’s when they host Real Madrid in the Champions League next week.
