Pennsylvania Woman Sentenced To 2 Years For Embezzling $458K From Bank

From the Times-Dispatch on 12/15/2014:

A Pennsylvania woman was sentenced to two years in prison Monday by U.S. District Judge Robert E. Payne in a $450,000 bank fraud.

Jeannetta Matthews, 27, of Upper Darby, Pa., was ordered to pay $457,967 in restitution to Wells Fargo Bank. She pleaded guilty in July to conspiracy to commit bank fraud.

Court documents say Matthews was a Wells Fargo bank employee in Pennsylvania who agreed in October 2012 to sell account and personal information for more than 20 bank customers.
Co-conspirators obtained false identification and credit cards in the names of the customers and impersonated them at Wells Fargo branches in Virginia, South Carolina, California, Georgia, and New Jersey. Two co-conspirators were previously sentenced to roughly five years and four years for their roles.
