An ex-Wells Fargo bank manager is accused of embezzling more than $900,000 from customers, most of whom were frail and elderly.
John Tran, 37, would visit customers’ homes talk them into making investments, then get their cashier checks directed to himself. Police were tipped off after a customer’s daughter visited the bank asking questions about why bank representatives were showing up on their doorstep and why the investments hadn’t appeared in her mother’s account.
This is why you should stay in touch with elderly family about what they are doing with their finances, and why you should never give any money to anyone with a faux-hawk.
