Bank supervisor earns certified fraud examiner designation

Sandra Legg, operations supervisor at the Alpine Bank branch in downtown Grand Junction, has earned designation as a certified fraud examiner.

The Association of Certified Fraud Examiners, an anti-fraud organization that provides anti-fraud education, bestows certification on candidates who meet rigorous requirements and pass an examination testing their knowledge in fraudulent financial transactions, fraud prevention and deterrence, legal elements of fraud and fraud investigation.

Certified fraud examiners have the ability to examine information and records to detect and trace fraudulent transactions, interview suspects to obtain information and confessions, write investigation reports, advise clients as to their findings, testify at trials, understand the law as it relates to fraud and fraud investigations and identify the underlying factors that motivate people to commit fraud.

Legg joined Alpine Bank in 1995 as a teller at the Clifton location.

Headquartered in Glenwood Springs, Alpine Bank operates 37 locations across Western Colorado. For more information, visit
