Default Bank doesn't catch employee's embezzling

http://www.honoluluadvertiser.com/ar...o+embezzlement

Quote:
A former teller has pleaded guilty to embezzling $218,000 from Molokai Community Federal Credit Union.
U.S. Attorney Florence T. Nakakuni said Friday that Daniel K. Mahiai faces a maximum penalty of 30 years in prison and a $1 million fine when he is sentenced Feb. 16.
Nakakuni says the 32-year-old Mahiai stole the money from his teller's draw between January 2005 and February 2008.
In order to hide his acts, Mahiai made false entries in various credit union accounts to make it appear account holders had made withdrawals. Mahiai then placed some of the accounts in "no mail" status, preventing the credit union from sending the members statements reflecting the withdrawals.
Shame on MCFCU for taking three years to uncover the theft of their customers' money. Any manager who is in charge of sending monthly statements to customers (by the way, this includes statement of payments due, such as with medical offices, etc) should know to run a monthly report on "no mail status" accounts, or "supressed statements" accounts. And of course, the person running the report should not be someone who might be hiding their own embezzling. How did it take the bank so long to discover the in-house theft??

Hummmm, maybe they are being securely held in a safety deposit box at a particular bank on a neighbor island....

Remember this was Molokai, the trust and honor system is how they do business there.

He probably targetted the elderly that don't do much transactions nor read their statements. He probably got caught when one of them started looking.

Moon rocks are so rare (on earth) and precious that not keeping them under top wraps and now suffering their loss is pathetic.

There should be a thurough internal investigation as to where they are.
These items don't just disappear, and prompts thots of theft. They probably weren't stored properly giving someones easy access to them and eventually poof!
Whatever the facts, it's doubtful there will be an answer that is acceptable, no matter how true.
