ST. LOUIS  • A woman from Greece was sentenced in federal court here Friday to three years in prison for a $2.2 million fraud.

Dora Argyropoulos, 61, of Athens, and her associates created fictitious business registrations with state authorities and then applied for checking accounts at eleven American banks, prosecutors said. The group then returned to Greece and used debit cards linked to those accounts “to cause massive overdrafts” totaling at least $2,289,836., they said.

Argyropoulos pleaded guilty in July to two felony counts of bank fraud and one count of conspiracy to commit bank fraud.
