Ex-Republic Bank clerk charged with $500,000 fraud

A former Republic Bank clerk was yesterday charged in a city court with misappropriating $500,000 that she was supposed to transfer to another bank.

The charge against Stacey Moffatt, of 38 Shell Road, Kitty, states that in the month of July, 2015, in Georgetown, while employed as a clerk or servant at Republic Bank, she received $500,000 from Ivan Bazilio in order that she may wire transfer the funds to the University of the Southern Caribbean’s Scotiabank account in Trinidad but fraudulently converted it to her own use.
