Sticky fingered women

Recommended Posts

30 months ago, a local pipeline contractor discovered $348K missing. Investigators traced it to his own 2 secretarys. Both went to jail.

11 months ago, 3 local non-profits  here found $240K missing. Investigators traced it to a common woman they all used as their accountant.  She`s in jail.

Last week, our local United way discovered $37K missing and arrested their female director.

We sure gots some HIGH maintenance women floating around these parts!

I sold my 1970 Chevelle SS to the husband of one of the pipeline thieves during the time frame of the thefts. She, one of the sticky fingered secretarys, told me shortly after her husband bought my car that she had bought another 70 Chevelle SS for HER to drive also.

If you are in business and don`t miss $348K, you have too much money!

Whew!

I wonder how many others with long fingers are running the books out there today?

Happened here a few years ago. Livestock sales barn secretary made off with 300,000. A better one is a rural water association director made off with over a million in 10 years. Nobody would have known but the director passes away and at his funeral were several big floral arrangements from the Indian casinos in the area. People that attended the funeral thought it was odd so started checking things out and he was a very preferred customer at the casinos. His only job was director in the small area so  officials looked into it and found over a million in fraud. It could be easy to do if you were tempted and in control off the books and accounts.

Happened here with a woman running a non profit to restore a covered bridge. Took something close to 150k and then also discovered she was dipping into another fund of another project she was involved with. Really hurt the community. I think in the end she was supposed to do 2 years in prison and 3 years of probation. Seems to me she came out pretty good.

I can relate to that. 

BUT 

Worth every penny not to deal with her

Worse part is a casino and several stores have it all now. She could spend money faster than I could make it

I think it's more common than ever before.

I'm in the middle of something now that doesn't add up😡

Its been an issue with town clerks' and treasurers up here for awhile now. Seems like in the forties and fifties you had to be a thug to be a thief, now it can be your grandmother...

But it is understandable. When an economy is red hot like it was in the 1970's the incidence of white collar crime was reasonably low. People generally made enough money to live without stealing. But with the crappy economy we have now, a lot more poverty exists in the white collar crowd, and some succumb to crossing the line when they are in a position of trust.

The united way is a crappy charity to begin with and now i hear about embezzlement within the organization! I dont know why anybody donates to that charity as its a rip off. Last i saw the percentage of the money thats donated that actually goes to charity is atrocious. Their CEO makes big bucks too.

Look out for the grandma's. Local smaller construction company lost 1 million over 11 years to a book keeper 68 years old. Could serve 16 years if convicted of all charges.

Its the "keep up with the Jones" culture.  No one seemed to care much who drove what or what type of tile her bathroom had.  Now it's 1 up world.  Everyone post the cool big spend thing they go online.  Never the interest paid or credit card bills is shared.  Or the stress on a family trying to keep up with everyone.  Money...#1 root od divorce.  And getting more dont usually fix anything.

A town near me here has a couple pretty good female money grabbers. One worked for the city office and took trips and vacations on the city's money which seemed to just disappear. The other sold sporting event tickets and trips that didn't exist. Tickets to the Super Bowl and all that. I think one of them is doing jail time now.

Not true.........MARRIGAE is the leading cause of divorce:lol:! Every single person I know who's been devoiced has been married......... 

George, it don't have much to do with poverty! Most of these crooks earn well above the poverty level. Troy, F30 and Tony have it right. Most often it's people who make more than enough to have a decent life. But most often they want more and that ole spouse refuses to go into debt to give the what they think they deserve. Most of them being older kinda backs that up. Younger women will steal in a heartbeat to feed their kids. Most of the ones getting caught are spending that stolen money on house remodels, cars, vacations or gambling.

I really doubt the numbers have gone up much through the years. In the day before computers it was easier to hide/harder to detect if it was spread out over a number of years.

The first pair`s downfall came when the accounts receivable girl questioned the accounts payable girl about something. Payable showed receivable how simple/safe it was and slipped her some $ to keep quiet.

Both lived comfortably/drove new cars etc but neither had kids. Snowballed from there. Both in their 40`s with husbands making good $.

Second woman 63/never married and claimed shopping addiction. $300K+ shopping?! 

Third girl in her 40s/married. 

Disagree with the divorce argument. Wives DO have rights to husband`s assets as husbands who marry sugar mamas. Works both ways.

Been thru that twice. 

But this is out and out stealing, period. No rights to assets whatsoever. 

No excuses/reasons/illnesses/rights. It`s stealing.

Ever watch American Greed?   Two old broads with a hardware store realized that the Military fraud didn't look at shipping costs, the fleeced the military for millions, like $10,000 in shipping for a minor order of washers and nuts cost less than $100

Here is one that happened near me. $500,000 from local gas/convenience store chain.  Caused one store that I went to a lot to close and all the remaining employees to lose their health insurance.

About an hour away at my favorite tire place the office girl was fired about a year ago for allegedly taking $36,000 over a 6 year period. That one hasn't gone to trial yet.
