North Hills Man Pleads Guilty to Bank Fraud

PITTSBURGH – A resident of Allison Park, Pa., pleaded guilty in federal court to a charge of bank fraud, United States Attorney David J. Hickton announced today.

Bortolo DalDosso, a/k/a Bart DalDosso, 53, of Allison Park, Pa., pleaded guilty to one count of bank fraud before United States District Judge Arthur J. Schwab.

In connection with the guilty plea, the court was advised that from April 2012, to December 2014, DalDosso used his position as the Manager of the Credit and Collections Department to embezzle $92,455.27 from Black Box Network Services’ corporate accounts at Bank of New York Mellon by having customer refunds credited to his or his wife’s credit card accounts or by depositing customer refund checks into his personal bank account after forging the endorsement signatures.

Judge Schwab scheduled sentencing for April 5, 2017 at 12:30 p.m. The law provides for a total sentence of 30 years in prison, a fine of $1,000,000, or both. Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the actual sentence imposed is based upon the seriousness of the offense and the prior criminal history, if any, of the defendant.

Assistant United States Attorney Shardul S. Desai is prosecuting this case on behalf of the government.

The U.S. Postal Inspection Service and Homeland Security Investigations conducted the investigation that led to the prosecution of DalDosso.
