Pair take deal for elder theft, identity theft
November 07, 2013, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Priscilla Banh

Jabriel Scott

A Daly City bank teller who stole $119,600 from a 91-year-old customer both before and after his death and, with her boyfriend, spent nearly $25,000 of the funds, pleaded guilty to felony counts of elder theft and identity theft.

In return, Priscilla Banh, 24, faces up to three years in prison when sentenced Jan. 6.

Her boyfriend, Jabriel Scott, 23, pleaded no contest to misdemeanor grand theft in return for credit of time served. He was immediately sentenced to 90 days jail with the credit and placed on two years court probation. He must also repay the victim’s estate $1,723.

Banh worked as a teller at Wells Fargo Bank and occasionally helped the elderly man with his financial transactions. Beginning on July 13, Banh opened three accounts in his name and linked them to her debit card, according to the District Attorney’s Office.

Over the next month, she allegedly transferred nearly $120,000 from his account and the couple made $24,620 in purchases. What they spent the money on or how they were caught was not immediately known.

The man died July 17.

Banh and Scott, both of San Francisco, were arrested in August.

Banh remains in custody on $250,000 bail.
