Fraudulent loans issued at Cash Express

NEWPORT-Four separate fraudulent loans were issued at Cash Express, but a source said they were just the proverbial tip of an iceberg of fraudulent loan activities at the business.

Cash Express customer Kambrea Harrison, 34, of Bridge Way, in Newport, told Timpia Roy, Cash Express district manager, that on Tuesday, Feb. 18, she got an alert from the business stating her account was past due and close to being sent for collection, the Newport Police Department reported.

Roy, the district manager, determined that Harrison did not open the loan in question, Patrolman David Clevenger reported.

Roy said a former employee he named had closed Harrisonís legitimate account of $174 with a payoff of that amount. The rogue employee then allegedly reopened Harrisonís account with a higher amount of $400.

Harrison told police she didnít authorize that action, and was unaware it had occurred.
