As a teller, you are trained to do right by the customer and the company that you work for. You are also told that if money is taken or stolen there will be consequences.
Working around money all day you have to be a trusted individual and a lot of banks or financial institutions make sure of that before hiring you.
On the other hand, there are always people who want to be a rebel and see if they can get away with it or see how much money the bank will allow someone to take before asking questions.
In an article from Fox 2 News called "Former Detroit bank teller accused of stealing $32,000 from 90-year-old man's account" by Amber Ainsworth who stated
"Alan Lee Hardy, 37, is accused of withdrawing the money from the victim's account when he worked at the Chase Bank at 3300 E. Jefferson Ave.
According to officials, the victim has not received any compensation for the money that was stolen.
"Elders are among the most vulnerable members of our society," said Acting U.S. Attorney Saima Mohsin. "They are often seen as an easy target by those who seek to take advantage of them. My office is committed to bringing those who prey on our seniors to justice."
The investigation was conducted by the United Secret Service and the Novi Police Department.
Whether Alan Lee Hardy did it or not what makes it worse is that an innocent person is missing money that they worked hard for.
People take advantage of elderly people every day it is important to have family watching over them to make sure they do not get taken advantage of.
The individual in question is currently being charged with bank fraud.
