Marcos Daniel Jiménez, United States Attorney for the Southern District of Florida, and Jonathon I. Solomon, Special Agent in Charge, Federal Bureau of Investigation announced today that a federal grand jury in West Palm Beach charged Karen Marlette Moody, a former customer service representative at Riverside National Bank in Delray Beach, with 10 counts of stealing money from bank customers. Each count carries a maximum term of imprisonment of 30 years and a $1,000,000 fine.
The indictment alleges that Moody created fraudulent accounts in the customers’ names, then diverted funds from the customers’ legitimate accounts to the fraudulent accounts. Moody then used the diverted funds to pay personal bills at Target, American Express, and other stores.
Mr. Jiménez commended the investigative efforts of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. This case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Bruce E. Reinhart.
