Bank Branch Manager Sentenced To Two Years In Prison For Defrauding Customers
The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced that today United States District Court Judge John E. Jones sentenced Tiffany K. Look, age 39, of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, to 24 months in prison for mail fraud.
According to U.S. Attorney Peter Smith, at separate times between 2007 and 2013, Look was a branch manager at two area financial institutions, Mid Penn Bank and Members First Federal Credit Union. While at Mid Penn Bank, Look carried out a scheme to obtain money from a bank customer by taking out a fraudulent loan in the customer’s name. After she left Mid Penn Bank, and began working at Members First, Look continued the scheme by taking out fraudulent loans in the names of three customers of the credit union. Members First reported the fraud to law enforcement. Judge Jones ordered Look to be taken into custody to begin serving her sentence immediately. She was also ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $139,820.60.
Charges were filed against Look in May 2014. She pled guilty later that month. The financial institutions cooperated with the investigation conducted by the United States Postal Inspectors and the Swatara Township and Hampden Township Police Departments. The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Joseph J. Terz.
