WICHITA, Kan. – A former employee at Enterprise CU on Monday pleaded guilty to embezzling $85,000 from the credit union through a check kiting scheme.
Deborah Bomia, 46, pleaded guilty to one count of embezzlement from April 30, 2005, to Aug. 8, 2011.
Bomia kited checks between accounts in her name at the credit union, creating false and fictitious balances. The embezzlement involved making a large deposit toward the end of the month, which would be included in the general ledger, but the actual deposit would not be sent to the corporate checking account until around the middle of the next month. At the same time, another larger check would be drafted out of Bomia’s credit union checking account.
The final deposit to the general ledger was recorded July 29, 2011, in the amount of $85,000. The money was never deposited to the credit union’s corporate account.
Bomia agreed to an order of restitution of $85,000. Sentencing is set for Oct. 10.
