Federal Criminal Charges in Grand Rapids Embezzlement | Credit Card Fraud Case
An Mlive article details an interesting new federal criminal case filed in Grand Rapid recently (click here to read the full story). In the article, the federal prosecutor describes the alleged scheme. In short, the defendant is accused of diverting credit card payments from a hotel where she worked to her own personal accounts. Over the course of 7 years, she is accused of stealing over $800,000, according to the Indictment. What’s interesting, to me at least, is that a fairly big hotel chain apparently lacked the accounting controls to detect such a scheme for the better part of 7 years, if at all. It could be that the accused’s actions were detected by the government and the use of suspicious activities reports filed by financial institutions. Regardless, the defendant is accused of money laundering too.
