When examiners confronted Santay, she verbally admitted that she and Awe were kiting checks that amounted to $690,120. Soon after the NCUA determined Lakeside was insolvent and closed its operations in July, the $3 billion, South Bend, Ind.-based Teachers Credit Union purchased Lakeside’s loan portfolio and assumed its 2,280 members. 13SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr continue reading »
