Former West Virginia Credit Union Employee Admits Role in Fraud Scheme

A former employee of a federal credit union pleaded guilty Monday to charges stemming from her role in a multi-million fraud schema that led to the failure of a credit union. Pamela Mullins, 47, of Bluefield pleaded guilty to a one-count information charging her with bank fraud. Mullins faces up to 30 years in prison and a $1 million fine when sentenced in January.In August, a federal grand jury in Beckley returned an indictment against Mullins’ co-worker, Rebecca Poe, 35, of Falls Mills, Virginia.According to the U.S. Attorney Mullins was named but not charged in the indictment. The indictment alleges that Poe, aided and abetted by Mullins, stole money from the N&W Poca Division Federal Credit Union located in Bluefield from 2003 to August 2008 through various schemes. The scheme resulted in the loss of $2.4 million dollars to the credit union contributing to its failure. Poe is scheduled to stand trial next month.
