Massachusetts Bank Worker Accused of Forging Bank Check To Purchase BMW
One of the perks of working at a bank is a little free money, right? Wrong. Very very wrong. A Massachusetts bank worker is accused of dipping his hand in the cookie jar… err piggy bank though and here’s what we know.
A bank worker is accused of forging a $65,000 treasurer’s check at the bank to buy himself a brand new BMW. Yikes.
The incident happened in June. That’s my birthday month. I’m glad he didn’t buy me any birthday presents.
Cambridge Trust in Boston’s Hyde Park neighborhood.
The bank employee’s name has been released, however I will not share it here as he’s only been “accused” so far. No need for names.
On June 16th the bank employee allegedly used the forged treasurer’s check to purchase a BMW X6 at BMW of Norwood. Currently a 2021 BMX X6 runs right around $65,000 new.
During the time in question surveillance cameras show the man working, but not helping any customers who came into the branch.
According to the district attorney’s office, on June 10th bank officers told police that the man generated a $65,000 treasurer’s check for reasons unknown. When the worker was confronted about the alleged generated check he told bank officers he had drafted the check by mistake and deleted the transaction. BUT… he was not able to produce the physical check.
Then on June 16th the bank employee allegedly used the forged treasurer’s check to purchase the BMW X6 at BMW of Norwood.
Bank officials provided police with a copy of the check, which had been signed by the bank worker. The man was fired from the bank the next day.
The man now faces charges of embezzlement from a bank, forgery, and writing a false check.
