Nearly four years in prison and a fine of $1.3-million – that’s the punishment for a Pittsford man convicted of bank and loan fraud in a federal court.
Prosecutors say Richard Kaufman was involved with pocketing extra money from over-valued financial statements from key bank.
Kaufman and his father used the funds to buy houses and country club memberships. As a result of the fraud scheme, Key Bank suffered an immediate loss of more than $1.5-million.
Kaufman's father, Michael, was also convicted. He's still awaiting sentencing.
