Default Former ATB Financial employee charged with $1.1-million fraud

http://calgarysun.com/news/crime/for...ake-bank-loans

Didn't see this posted yet. Surprised she was able to get over $1M before finally getting caught. I wonder if fake mortgages were part of the fraud or was it just a bunch of personal loans.

It amazes me that these people ever think they'll get away with this. They're always eventually caught.

Maybe they have personal, financial or psychological problems and they think they'll beat the odds, or they're just stupid.

My guess is that they start with petty theft and get away with it. As the crimes continue and ramp up slowly over time a feeling of invincibility sets in until they are finally discovered.

From what I understand it wasn't mortgages, it was via business accounts and transactions.

I know of 3-4 people that lost a lot money as a result of this individual (allegedly).

In fact we had the RCMP come around asking questions as she lived on our street and "disappeared" one day from her rental.

The worst part of this is, in a small town her kids could be painted with the same brush as her, and that isn't fair.

Saw this yesterday ON Reddit and someone wondered if the 2 stories were related...
