CU System briefs (09/22/2009)
* SAN DIEGO (9/23/09)--A former employee of San Diego-based USA FCU's branch at the Yokota (Japan) Air Base has been sentenced to three years in federal prison for bank fraud stemming from the theft of about $1.5 million. Leticia Figuracion, 56, who was in charge of reporting the daily balance at the branch's vault, pleaded guilty to stealing roughly $10,000 a month for years from the vault and lying about the balance. She used the account of a credit union member to wire money to an account in the U.S. and changed the mailing address on the member's account to hide her action. She used some of the money to open a restaurant in Los Angeles and sent money to relatives in the Philippines and the U.S. The incidents occurred from 1992 until September 2008. Figuracion eventually came forward and admitted the crime. She also was ordered to repay $1.5 million to the credit union (The San Diego Union-Tribune Sept. 21) … * WEST ALLIS, Wis.
