From the NY Post:
A personal banker at the Long Island City branch of Astoria Federal Savings was charged last week with stealing more than $90,000 in customers’ funds over five months, Queens District Attorney Richard Brown said.
Eman Mazhar, 30, of College Point, was charged Jan. 15 with grand larceny, possession of stolen property, falsifying business records and money laundering. If convicted, she faces up to seven years in prison. Her next court date is Jan. 26.
“The defendant is accused of using her position to take the proceeds of checks submitted to her for deposit in customers’ annuity funds, cashing stolen checks against customers’ accounts and taking the proceeds of checks submitted for deposit into customers’ accounts,” Brown said in a statement. “The lesson to be learned from this case is that there is a penalty to be incurred for early withdrawal — especially of other people’s money.”
