Former Bank Employee Charged With Misapplication Of Bank Funds

PHILADELPHIA - Lynsey H. Haslip, formerly “Lynsey H. Dabback,” 32, of Pottstown, Pennsylvania, was charged today by information with misapplication of bank funds by an employee, announced United States Attorney Zane David Memeger. The information alleges that in 2009 Haslip, while employed as an Assistant Branch Manager at PNC Bank in West Chester, Pennsylvania, misapplied a total of $172,100 from bank customers’ accounts.

According to the information, between January and May 2009, Haslip performed approximately 12 unauthorized withdrawals, debits, and redemptions from the accounts of seven different PNC Bank customers without the customers’ knowledge or consent. Haslip used the stolen funds to issue cashier’s checks to, and make deposits to the accounts of, other PNC Bank customers. Haslip told the recipient customers that they had received PNC Bank loans, when she knew that they had not been approved for any such loans by the bank.

If convicted, the defendant faces a maximum possible sentence of 30 years in prison, five years of supervised release, a fine of up to $1 million, a $100 special assessment, and an order to pay full restitution.
