Seneca Loan-Company Worker Accused Of Making $87K in Fake Loans

Posted: Updated:
SENECA, S.C. - Police in Seneca charged a former loan-company worker, who's accused of taking out loans in customers' names and keeping the cash.

According to Chief John Covington, two people filed complaints saying they got late-payment notices in the mail from Always Money in Seneca. Both victims said they did not have active loans with the company. Police say they alerted the company, which found out that an employee compromised the identity of 60 people, accessing their files and creating $87,000 in fraudulent loans. Always Money said it happened between mid-2011 and November 2013. Investigators located all the customers involved.

Police arrested Angela D. Simpson, 48, of Seneca and charged her with 74 counts of Financial Identity Fraud, 74 counts of Forgery, and 1 count of Breach of Trust with Fraudulent Intent greater than $10,000. Simpson turned herself in Thursday at the Seneca Police Dept. and was incarcerated at the Oconee Detention Center on the 149 arrest warrants.

Simpson was employed as a Customer Service Representative with Always Money, but resigned. The investigation is still open.
