Eau Claire (WQOW) - Sentencing was handed down Tuesday for an area woman accused of using customer information to take out loans in their names, and pocketing the cash. Brooke Suckow, from Menomonie, worked at Advance America Loans in Eau Claire. She is accused of using the identities of nine customers to take out loans of more than $4,600.
Tuesday, Judge Shaughnessy Murphy put Suckow on probation for three years and ordered her to pay restitution. She won't have to serve three months in jail if she successfully completes probation. According to the complaint, when Suckow was first questioned, she claimed one of her bosses pressured her into taking out the fraudulent loans, so they could split the money. While that person has not been charged at this time, Suckow's sentence requires her to testify against anyone else involved in the case.
