"Bullitt County Attorney Walt Sholar said the trouble began on
June 22, when someone started making unauthorized wire transfers of
$10,000 or less from the county's payroll to accounts belonging to
at least 25 individuals around the country (some individuals
received multiple payments). On June 29, the county's bank realized
something was wrong, and began requesting that the banks receiving
those transfers start reversing them, Sholar said.
""Our bank told us they would know by Thursday how many of those
transactions would be able to be reversed," Sholar said. "They told
us they thought we would get some of the money back, they just
weren't sure how much.""
