FBI investigating fraud involving Little Falls credit union


A Little Falls credit union was liquidated and an FBI fraud investigation is ongoing.

Kyle Loven, FBI spokesman in Minneapolis, said the bureau became involved in late January when irregularities were reported at the credit union. Loven couldn’t elaborate whether the report came from the credit union itself or a third party. The FBI is working with the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) and the Little Falls Police Department in the investigation.
