Citibank Employee Accused of Embezzlement



Bookmark and Share

Federal prosecutors have indicted a former Citibank employee on bank fraud, embezzlement an identity theft. According to the federal indictment, Terri Jo Huber allegedly used Citibank customer’s credit cards to pay for personal debts.

 Huber was an Escalation Specialist at Citibank. That job gave her access to customer's information which she then used to her advantage.
  
According to the federal indictment filed on Aug. 13, Huber stole money from November of 2011 to November of 2012.
   
During that time, the indictment stated Huber would access customer's accounts, take their card numbers, and pay personal bills. To hide the transactions, Huber would modify the customer's addresses and other notification information in Citibank's computer records.

The indictment said Huber stole six peoples' identities from around the United States.

 A total dollar amount of how much she stole wasn't stated in the indictment, but it did say it was at least $2,000.

In a statement sent to KDLT, Citibank Spokesman Jerry Nachtigal wrote:

"Her employment was terminated in November 2012. She handled customer service inquiries. Upon discovering the matter, we immediately notified the authorities and terminated her employment. We also notified and took steps to protect the customers involved. Consistent with legal requirements, our customers are not liable for any unauthorized use of their accounts."

Wednesday in court Huber pleaded not guilty to all nine counts she is facing. Huber could face up to 30 years in prison if found guilty of fraud and embezzlement charges. 

Huber was released Wednesday on personal recognizance. This means the court doesn’t find her a flight risk and she will be responsible for appearing at her next court date.
