MT: Woman gets prison for bank fraud
Slightly o/t, but once again we see employees falling for it…
Clair Johnson of the Billings Gazette reports on a ring that defrauded banks in Montana, Wyoming, Oregon, Minnesota, Indiana and Kentucky:
In the scheme, Isaacs would present a bank with a credit or debit card for a cash advance of less than $10,000. When the card was swiped and declined, Isaacs would tell the bank employee to call a customer service number she provided. The purported customer service agent would then provide codes that would override the card machine and Isaacs would get the cash she requested.
If the story sounds familiar, it may be because there was a similar scheme in Mississippi reported here last week.
