Lock her up...She knew that money was not there.
And for the Bank, as a teller we were always told to verify funds and authorzed signatures on accts- esp large amounts. They need to take a closer look at that branch employees too. While your at it, you need to look at the Barnum Ave office too. CLOSELY

I been with peoples bank for 25 years and they always know how much money is in my account. Many times they would not let me withdraw cash because a peoples check did not clear even though the payee account had the funds.

like swampland in Florida - i don't buy it! how can you misstate an account number? they are soo cautious at these banks that you can't even get $20 more from your account if the funds are not there without them scrutinizing it. sounds like it may be an inside job. Anyway, the $50K covered her bail.

I would imagine that a planned embezzlement would net you a bit more time than a crime of opportunity. Not that either is acceptable, they are just different.

Hmmmmm....People's bank......maybe she (the alleged perp) found unshredded customer important info that was inadvertently tossed by an unsuspecting/careless customer of the bank?
Maybe she was validating James Hastings theory about this banks alleged flawed best practice solutions in dealing with customers discarded "trash" from public common area locations?
Hey.....don't think any lawyer worth a discarded customer transaction receipt tossed in the trash.....wouldn't try and float this by a jury....should this alleged perp make it to trial!

You're right! And you can't get a nickel if the funds haven't cleared even if they are able to verify funds from another People's account.

It's a wonder they are losing money! Who's minding the store? Do they have someone in charge of security who's responsible for monitoring these big withdrawals, transfers, etc?

People's Bank has some work to do! Those at the top might have been too busy counting their cash that they just stole from the shareholders instead of minding the store!

No no no, this is the banks fault. Not that shes any less at fault, but the teller should have realized there was a different name on the account. How many people wouldn't take advantage of a bank error. Maybe this one was a little extreme, but most people will take money without saying anything. Peoples Bank sucks thats why I closed my account and got out of there....

Please.....Once knows how much money they have in their own bank account. It was intentional and bank error or not she deserves to go to jail or pay up what she took.

I'm not shocked. I know her and that animal ex-boyfriend of hers, Rocky Guarnieri, AKA "The Scum of the Earth". It would not surprise me if he's involved.

HMMMM People's United(?)Bank Again? Something is up with that bank..seem as though People's has some strange things..no shredding of important documents..blame & arrest Jim the man providing evidence...Giving money out to those with no funds. Yet it's act of God for those of us with bona fide amount of funds in acount to withdraw
money in account....Something hasn't been jiving with People's for quite a few years...And I don't mean tellers & the like..,more like Directors..If you get my drift!

I HAVE DEALT WITH PEOPLES BANK AND HAVE FOUND THEM TO BE THE MOST DISPICABLE PEOPLE I HAVE EVER MET IN MY LIFE. THERE ARE PLENTY OF OTHER BANKS OUT THERE. I WOULD RECOMMEND USING ANOTHER BANK. THEY TREATED ME LIKE A CRIMINAL. THEY SAID THEY WOULD DAMAGE MY CREDIT RATING IF I DIDN'T PAY A LOAN OFF IMMEDIATELY THAT I HAD BEEN PAYING ON. TERRIBLE PEOPLE. DON'T DEAL WITH THEM!

nice try guys its your company and you know exactly where all the money went to pay the floor plan, check the bank account like you already did and there's nothing wrong with it. what's the matter things aren't going the way you wished and need to blame someone else. you guys are signer on the accounts not me. didnt the bank tell you things got paid like they should of for once! how do you look at yourselves in the mirror with all the lies you say. the peoples bank things was a banking error too bad you don't know the whole story nor the truth! stop blaming her for your mistakes!!!!!!
