Bank Teller Stole Customer Info for ID Theft Ring

A bank teller in New York, part of a three person identity theft ring, has been sentenced to prison for two to six years.

The teller used her computer access at work to steal personal information about hundreds of customers and then shared the data with her co-conspirators who created false documents and withdrew money from victims' accounts.

"The ring stole over $850,000 by using bank tellers to fraudulently obtain the personal information of hundreds of customers."
