Woman Admits Stealing Info in Check Fraud Schem
PROVIDENCE – A former bank employee has admitted to a federal judge that she stole the banking information of people and businesses, giving it to co-conspirators for check fraud, announced United States Attorney Zachary A. Cunha.
Isha-Lee Savage, 24, admitted that, while employed by Santander Bank, she accessed customer information and sent screenshots of that information to co-conspirators. The information was used to create fraudulent checks that the leader of the check fraud conspiracy, Richard Koboi, provided to other individuals that he solicited on Facebook and paid to deposit the checks into bank accounts that they controlled. Savage also used her position working in the bank’s call center to ask customers to provide their debit card information which Savage then provided to her co-conspirators so that they could make fraudulent purchases, according to Cunha’s office.
