A court in Jakarta, Indonesia found former Citigroup employee Inong Malinda Dee guilty of fraud and sentenced her to 8 years in prison, the Wall Street Journal reported today.Officials say Dee defrauded Citigroup clients by asking them for signed blank checks, and took over $4.4 million from them through 117 transactions, according to the WSJ. As part of her sentence, Dee also has to pay a $1.1 million fine.

Dee funneled the money towards plastic surgery operations and expensive cars, “including two Ferraris, a Hummer, a Mercedes and a Porsche,” the WSJ reported.

Dee worked in relationship management for Citigroup’s wealth management operations in Indonesia until last March when she was arrested.
