Jacksonville, FL - A Jacksonville woman is accused of defrauding Navy Federal Credit Union out of more than $60,000.
Jacksonville Police say 33-year-old Janie Smith would deposit checks in to 31 different accounts through the ATM and then make withdrawals against the deposits. Police say the checks weren’t tied to valid accounts, however, and would come back as “Unable to Locate Account” or “Closed Account”.
Police used video surveillance to identify Smith. She has asked for a lawyer and isn’t talking with police.
She has been charged with Fraudulent Use of Personal Identification Information, 31 counts of Bank Fraud and Organized Fraud. The alleged crimes happened between December 2011 and November 2012.
