Police nab former Lone Star Bank loan officer for identity theft

Emma Vigil, a former Lone Star National Bank loan officer, was arrested at her McAllen, Texas home and charged with one count of aggravated identity theft and five counts of bank fraud.  Vigil allegedly made several fraudulent debit transactions from May 2005 to September 2008 from high balance, high traffic accounts, apparently hoping the fraudulent transactions would not be noticed.

Vigil also used her customer's personal identifiers to secure funding for one of the fraudulent loans and fabricated applicants' names and information on other loans.  Due to her criminal actions, her victims and Lone Star National Bank are out over $600,000.
