A Bank of America IT worker is expected to plead guilty Tuesday to planting malware on the institution's computers and ATM machines, allowing him to fraudulently withdrawal thousands of dollars without leaving any record of the transactions. Rodney Reed Caverly, 37, of Charlotte, N.C. allegedly netted more than $5,000 though the scheme, which ran from March to October 2009. Caverly was charged with one count of computer fraud and, if convicted, faces up to five years in prison. — AM
