It took from 2007 and 2008, and from 2008 until last month; who's the freaking accountant? That's got to make every customer warm and fuzzy; the security checks and balnces didn't catch on for TWO YEARS? Are you kidding?
Good luck with that.

When a famous bank robber of the 1930s or 1940s was asked whey he robbed banks, his answer, "because that's where the money is."
Well I agree with first poster. Why did it take this long to catch the crook, I mean teller?
Banks should do an accounting of all monies taken in and all monies paid out each day. There should be no discrepancy.
Also didn't the video cameras catch her doing a five-finger discount into her own account?
Somebody was asleep at the switch here.
Were the depositors' money insured with FDIC to the $20k or $30 k? Just asking.

I'm watching: This is the new BANKING FEE/INTEREST RATES. NO AUDITING FOR EMPLOYEES, ESPECIALLY HEDGE FUND MANAGERS! LET ALONE THE PERSON WITH ALL THE CASH!

What really get's me about this whole deal is they say... "The bank is asking customers to check their bank statements and notify them if they find anything unusual". Are you kidding me? Who's responsibility is it to make sure you're cash is safe ?, The customer ? Here we go again...Be quiet and get to the back of the line !

I agree, the bank should do an audit of all customer accounts- they should not have to do this themselves!!

If customers lost money and did not complain over the period of 2-3 years, then they deserve to have lost those dollars. Please, take responsibility for your own things and stay out of mine! You should be keeping track of your accounts, what goes in, what comes out, on some level. I may not keep good records, but I know what I should or should not have in my bank account. Especially since I only live paycheck to paycheck and have little.
It's called responsibilty for ones self and things. You need to check your accounts regularly (you know, the statements you receive every month whether online or hardcopy) and make note and ask what is going on with the bank if there are discrepancies.
Course, it is easier to sue someone than to take responsibility for ones things or self.

You bring up a good point. Was the reason she was caught, that a customer complained and someone was forced to actually do their job, and check the accounting records? Did she fly under the radar for that long, carefully, until someone had a beef with their balance?
Any tellers reading here? tell us how that could slip unnoticed for that long...

Please be realistic will you? How many people actually have the time to scrutinize over their banks statements ? You go to a Bank and have trust in them handling your money, at least that's the way it is suppose to work. Also , as with any large institution, ever try to call one and get some answers with out talking to someone in the Philippines or some forsaken place in South America ? They make things so complicated now that you finally give up and take one to the shorts!

Absolutely, I know what I am supposed to have in my accounts to the penny. I bet she was nickle and diming customers. Perhaps she was making it look like a bank fee on the statement. It's not the crime that amazes me, its the fact that these people actually believe that they won't get caught.Banking institutions are unscrupulous, apathetic and greedy these days. Deal with cash whenever you can, scrutinize every statement, pay attention to the predatory banking fees and question everything that looks out of place. I bet you that just about everyone has had an experience with the bank having their collective hand in the till.

It take about 30 minutes to go over a statement, once a month.
Save your credit/debit card receipts, deposit/withdrawal receipts, and log your checks. When your statement comes in then check them all against the statement. If it balances then update any software you use if you use any then throw your statements, receipts and slips into the bag for burning at your next cookout.

She could have had it in her bait money that is usually in a separate money bag and they would change the amount on the tag, that is what a teller did about 20 years ago or so this teller stold about $50,000, but man that is alot of money not to notice.

You think this bank is screwed up. You should see how ESL Federal Credit Union is run. Poor traing, high turnover, many mistakes, theft and poor service. ESL may hire this woman. They are despirate.
