The Columbia Bank was a financial institution located at the intersection of Canal Street and Broadway in New York.[1][2]

John A. Haas worked for this bank as a bookkeeper until his dismissal on 2 December 1926.[1][2] He was arraigned four days later, along with alleged accomplice William Friend, for the crime of defrauding the bank of $121,000.[1][2] Mayer and Brown, the detectives in charge of the case, stated they had never seen such a "slovenly, almost unbelievably simple" system of forging accounting records to hide fraud as that used by Haas and Friend.[1][2] The case was reported on in the 6 December 1926 issue of the New York Chronicle.[1]
