Kwasi Adadevoh

A Wells Fargo employee was arrested last month when an undercover police officer observed him committing bank fraud.

Marietta police urged Wells Fargo customers to check their bank accounts after Kwasi Adadevoh, 24, was arrested for using customer information to commit fraud.

According to AJC.com, the incident occurred in the 600 block of Roswell Street about 11:30 p.m. Sept. 28.

An undercover officer in an unmarked car observed a male wearing gloves and a dark hoodie at a Wells Fago ATM machine.

The officer watched the man "sprint back to a vehicle that was parked 100 yards away,” police Officer Brittany Wallace said Tuesday.

The officer called for backup, and a patrol unit arrived and blocked the vehicle from leaving the parking lot.

Officers searched the car and found several bank documents that were not in Adadevoh's name.

“Upon search of Adadevoh’s vehicle it was determined that he was an employee at a Wells Fargo Bank and he was committing fraudulent activity with multiple accounts by using Wells Fargo customer’s information,” Wallace said.

Police also found amphetamines and marijuana in the vehicle, Wallace said.

Adadevoh was booked into the Cobb County Adult Detention Center and released on Sept. 29 on $8,000 bond, sheriff’s office spokesman Robert Quigley said.

Wells Fargo is investigating the incident.

  • Junkanoo

    Yet they refuse to put bankers in jail who caused the 2008 economic melt down ,I think one country arrested and sentence bankers to jail for the 2008 financial meltdown and that was Iceland . Why do white collar criminals always get a pass? It's high time it stopped

  • Cares4uWishElectionwasover

    Well if this ain't some Marxist Racist BS if I ever saw it.

    Mean While John Stump the "former" CEO of WELLS FARGO walked away with 200 million after stealing billions, I'

    That got this negro as scape goat. He probably live in loft over someone's garage and don't even have a car.

    Logs off, I'm pissed.

    PSA, they are hiring and looking for honest employees for all the people they are catching in embezzling and fraudulent activities...for a mere 40k, you too can be an upstanding citizen and clean up all the chit the dishonest fu(ked up. The offers I get while down on my luck. I'll be damned. But, that's my feeling in the financial industry. you can bite if you want, but everything you catch on a hook-ain't worth cooking!

  • the guest

    Thank god for you bringing the truth on this. This post brought tears to my eyes. I said from the start when they let that white woman Wells Fargo executive THUG walk away with hundreds millions that the scapegoating will begin. This young brother is going to do time as a sacrificial lamb. The Wells Fargo board and executives plummeting the bank into the ground and the police are surveilling ATM machines? This glaring economic racism is making me sick to my stomach.

  • scentsychick30

    Yet the folks at the top got bonuses smh they all should've been arrested.?

    In the words of Della Reese... Kiss my entire aaasssssss!!!! So this black man commits fraud and he goes to jail. The white CEO or whatever gen was commits fraud and he gets to retire with $10mil??? FOH!!!

  • thehumble1

    I hope he legal... If not he will be one of the 11,000.00 trump sending back. That leaves 10,999.00

  • the guest

    I had a personal checking, savings, and two business accounts with Wells Fargo. I moved all of my accounts to a new bank. When you request to close your accounts, they will pretend they didn't hear you and do everything but lock you in the branch to force you to stay. Wells Fargo and anything associated are crooks. The young man in this article is a casualty of a criminal banking organization. Wells Fargo is a Ponzi scheme. You are right to leave.

  • AJ

    Thank you! Like we should be worried about 1 person. Only dummies still bank at Wells Fargo. The entire operation was opening credit accounts under customer's names. Where is that story?

    Pardon, but what does any of that have to do with him getting caught red-handed? Are you implying he doesn't deserve to be thrown in jail?

    So glad i don't bank with Wells. A bunch of damnn crooks including CEO not to be trusted. Dude got tats all over his fukin face, Frauds

  • Cares4uWishElectionwasover

    Yes, you are correct. I guarantee he was doing was he was taught or told by non black associate.

  • Crazy tee

    I'm sure he's not the only one but they have to start with the minorities first....by the time they get to the white folk he'll be one of 3 things...1. On the run...2. Beat the case....3. Suicide

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    The arrest happened a month ago. If they care so much about Wells Fargo customers, why didn't they report it then?

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Do you see what's going on in Sweden? They banned Christmas light displays in public so as not to offend the Muslim refugees.

  • Allihave2say

    I never like to justify one crime by the commission of another but...Just last month a WW, Carrie Toldstedt was allowed to retire and receive $125M executive package after it was discovered that she encouraged the largest act of fraud in Wells Fargo history. She orchestrated an act of fraud that causes 5300 people under her to be fired and face criminal charges. She however is free. This man in comparison to her is like stealing cookies from the washateria.

  • Allihave2say

    $125M

  • Cole

    Where is my 40acres and the jackass...well they can have Charlamayne.....

  • AJ

    Not rude...realistic. Why would anyone knowingly bank with a company who systemically engaged in fraudulent activity against its customers, ruined people's lives and gave the CEO millions when he "resigned". Wells Fargo deserves no one's business. People need to know they have a choice and removing money en masse speaks volumes and could deservedly make them collapse as a result.

  • the guest

    Absolutely.

    It is very likely the non black associate was well aware of the ATM surveillance and benefited from setting up this young black man's arrest.

  • Jussjess25

    Yea, but the white man CEO of wells Fargo was allowed to resign with his million dollor severance check. He was also very much involved in the scamming of peoples accounts.

  • the guest

    This African kid was set up and many more low level employees of color will be set up to be the patsies for the Wells Fargo criminal board and executives.

  • Shaylove1975

    Now they need to bust the employees at ________bank for making duplicatr cards to customers accounts and using them places.

  • Nonyé

    FYI, he's Ghanaian, not Nigerian...just saying. Not that it makes a difference. Black is black too anyone who isn't.

  • Moon Lee

    Damn crook!

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    Really? Tell me more...

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    Come on now! He is 24 and old enough to know (because in the yearly training) they teach you that you don't hold or use ANY customer's info. Now , it's true the banking group at WF didn't follow that obviously, but to go to ATMs ESPECIALLY after the fraud was revealed was just stupid on his part. He still had a choice. ALL should be responsible for their actions. And you know it's a rare thing for the top Execs to get sentenced ala Bernie Madoff... So why try an already flawed system?!

  • Look@m3

    Bank of America was paying for the darn Cartel trafficking drugs and crap. They ALL corrupt. I am still with Wellsfargo and I will have to take a day off from work to move all of my information and make all those changes. I plan to do so but I just cant do it on whim...

  • Look@m3
  • Hmmm~?

    What you're saying makes absolutely no sense. You're quite literally talking out of your ass. You're basing these assumptions off of nothing. This man did what he did on his own volition. Stop infantilizing him by implying he's incapable of discerning right from wrong. He knows what he was doing, regardless of whether or not someone put him up to it.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Don't care what you think! He comes here to this country and rips people off?!?!?! He obviously doesn't give a damn about us and doesn't appreciate being here so like I said, he can take is booty-scratchin azz back where he comes from .

  • Quitedeliteful

    Don't worry bout me huntie. I'm good.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Yup a adult. He comes to this country and rips people off. He has no respect for the hardworking people here who need their money. He doesn't give a damn how the people he ripped off feels. He can take his thieving dusty self back to his country and rip them off instead.

  • Quitedeliteful

    No... but it's true...

  • Missy Misdemeanor ???

    You care, you commented dumb lost African...
