CHARLESTON, W.Va. – A branch manager for Star FCU last week was charged with using false information to obtain $80,000 in loans from the credit union.

Michelle Morris, 37, allegedly used relatives’ names and identifying information to fraudulently obtain the loans from the credit union. Proceeds from some loans were used to pay off earlier fraudulent loans, according to a grand jury indictment.

Morris worked as vice president of operations at the credit union’s St. Albans branch until 2007, then in the same position at its Cantley branch.
