White Plains bank teller pleads guilty to stealing customer data


WHITE PLAINS – A former teller at a JP Morgan Chase bank branch in White Plains was convicted on Tuesday as part of an identity-theft ring that targeted local banks.
The ring stole over $850,000 by using bank tellers to fraudulently obtain the personal information of hundreds of unsuspecting customers, and then creating fake ID cards to withdraw money from the counts.
In exchange for the guilty plea by Nadia Figueroa, 24, of the Bronx, she will be sentenced to two to six years in state prison.  Figueroa pled guilty to a felony charge of grand larceny in connection with the crime.
The scheme’s ringleader, Tyrone “Reese” Lee and defendant Anthony “Sug” Davis also pled guilty to their roles in the ring last month.       
The three conspirators victimized customers in banks in Yonkers, White Plains, Newburgh, the Bronx and Long Island.
