Bank Scam Artist Denied Work at Philadelphia AFSCME Local

On November 29, Marcus Nabried, an applicant for a job with American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Local 1199C in Philadelphia, was denied a reduction in the statute of limitations applying to his employment eligibility. The U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania had good reason for its action. Back in August 2011, Nabried, a former employee of Citizens Bank, had been convicted for his role in an elaborate “check runner” scheme through which employees at branches of several Philadelphia-area banks shared personal account holder information for the purpose of withdrawing customer funds for their own use. The latest action follows a probe by the Labor Department’s Office of Labor-Management Standards.
