Inside Job: Boulder US Bank Teller Stole Nearly $30,000 From Accounts
It's not 'early retirement' kind of money, but it is 'stolen vacation' money. The teller has confessed to stealing from customers' accounts and will be in court in March.
I bank at US Bank, so it caught my attention as CBS4 Denver is reporting on how 34-year-old Brianne Gypin has been arrested on several charges stemming from her 'working' at a branch in Boulder.
I'm sure she did do some legitimate bank teller duties while employed at the bank, but she also found time to do some thievery.
It all happened over six months, where she used customers' account information to make debit cards and forged checks.
According to CBS 4 Denver, Brianne admitted to using the $27,000 to pay her rent (which you could sympathize with) but also to buy things including a trip to Disneyland.
Disneyland. I can't imagine have a ton of fun at Disneyland because of A: The pandemic, and B: Using stolen money.
The charges against her include "at-risk" charges, which, I believe means she stole from elderly people or people with disabilities; which just adds to the 'meaness' of the crime.
I've been using US Bank ever since I was a young man in the '80s and opened my first account at what, at the time was American Bank at 29th Street and Garfield (near the Post Office,) and it would upset me to find that my account had been hacked and pilfered from in an 'inside job.'
