Commonwealth bank clerk accused of taking $2.4m from a customer’s account in NSW




A former Commonwealth Bank clerk accused of illegally moving $2.4 million out of a customer’s account may face more charges, a Sydney court has been told.

Hsin-Yu Tsai, 31, faces three charges after she allegedly withdrew $150,000 from a customer’s account and transferred another $2.25m into a Netbank savings account she’d secretly set up in someone else’s name.

Once in the account, the $2.25m was allegedly moved through two other accounts before $750,000 ended up in an account wholly controlled by Tsai.

The alleged incident occurred in September 2015 but police weren’t alerted until March 2019.

Tsai was arrested in December.

The Chippendale woman, who also goes by the first name Angela, was not required to appear in Downing Centre Local Court on Wednesday.

Her lawyer Robert Daoud asked the matter be adjourned until February 27, explaining police needed time to “ventilate” options on further charges.

Tsai already faces charges of knowingly dealing with the proceeds of crime, causing disadvantage by deception and larceny as a clerk.

Her bail conditions require her to report to police three times a week, not apply for a Taiwanese or Australian passport and not contact an alleged accomplice.
