Former Massachusetts Bank Teller Pleads Guilty To $330K Misappropriation

Jeffrey C. Gautreaux, 26, of Peabody, Massachusetts, pleaded guilty last week to charges of bank fraud and identity fraud in connection with the misappropriation of more than $330,000 from Bank of America, where he had been employed as a teller. Specifically, Gautreaux plead guilty to 17 counts of bank fraud and one count of identity fraud for an embezzlement scheme that lasted from November 2004 until February 2006. Gautreaux made unauthorized withdrawals from customer accounts using customer data. A customer complaint led to an internal investigation resulting in the criminal charges against Gautreaux. He was originally charged last June and is scheduled to be sentenced on June 1, 2010.
