Former Daly City bank teller jailed for elder theft
January 11, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Priscilla Banh

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 was sentenced to a year in jail and banned from holding a position of trust for any elder adult.

Priscilla Banh, 24, must also repay more than $10,000 to Wells Fargo bank. Banh pleaded guilty to felony counts of elder theft and identity theft in return for no more than three years prison. Instead, she received the year jail with credit of 296 days followed by three years of supervised probation.

Her boyfriend, Jabriel Scott, 23, pleaded no contest to misdemeanor grand theft in return for credit of time served and was already sentenced to 90 days jail and two years court probation.

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.
