A federal grand jury indicted a former employee of Compass Bank in Laredo on Tuesday for bank fraud, conspiracy to commit bank fraud, money laundering and unlawful monetary transactions arising from an alleged scheme involving more than $8 million in losses to bank customers.
How does one swindle a bank out of $8 million? Was it something where she introduced a virus into the computer system and funneled fractions of pennies into her account like in "Office Space"? And $8 million! Where does that come from and what do you do with it?
