Miami bank VP behind bars–& barred from banking for life

For 15 years, Silvia Angelico Nieto served faithfully as a vice president and relationship manager in Northern Trust N.A.’s international private banking division. Or so the Miami bank thought.

Turns out, she spent at least part of that time misdirecting more than $4 million dollars into her own personal bank accounts.

In August, she pleaded guilty to “felony misapplication by a bank employee.” She was sentenced to 78 months in prison, to be followed by four years of supervised probation. She must also make restitution in the amount of $5.8 million.

Under federal banking rules, Nieto is now barred for life from working in the banking industry.

Note: Even trusted, long-term employees can be stealing from the company. In fact, they may know your system’s flaws better than anyone else. Always have financial records reviewed by more than one person internally and regularly by an outside auditor.
