NYC Workers Accused of Stealing Millions From Credit Unit After Sept. 11
NEW YORK -- In one of the largest fraud cases resulting from the terrorist attacks, thousands of people are accused of using ATMs to steal $15 million from a municipal employees' credit union whose computer security system was damaged on Sept. 11.The kicker, of course, is that credit unions are typically set up to get their members better deals than a standard bank would be willing to offer. So, who ultimately suffers here?
