Montco Banker Charged With Defrauding Elderly Customers

By Brad Segall
POTTSTOWN, Pa. (CBS) — A 28-year-old Montgomery County man is free on bail, facing theft and related charges and accused of preying on elderly customers at the Pottstown bank where he worked.

Prosecutors say Jon Dugan was a “personal banker” at the Wells Fargo Bank on East High Street.  He was supposed to be helping customers with their banking needs, but they say he was also helping himself to some of their money.

The Douglassville man is charged with stealing nearly $9,000 from six women over a period of three months.

“Each time, these women were alone,” notes Montgomery County DA Risa Ferman, “and based upon the seemingly helpful representations of this man, they relied upon him.  And instead of helping them manage their finances, he stole from them.”

The women ranged in age from 77 to 92.

Police say he would gain their trust and their signatures, and then transfer money, keeping some for himself.

It was the bank’s investigators who caught the alleged thefts.

    agree… I think all employers should be spot drug testing employees.. they test positive they no longer would work …. a great attack on this ongoing war on drugs.. just amazed that employers do not drug test… just speechless

    Thanks to the banks investigators. how about a little Fraud prevention by drug testing your employees. Every bank should require that and not just of it’s tellers but of it’s executives. They should lead the way. there should be no advance notice here’s your notice, be at the testing site within one hour. mandatory.
