Female White-Collar Crime Divas-Mordern Day Thieves
The Crime Divas for today is Melissa Ann Martinsen, 29, younger than most of our divas, but she has met all the points to be onboard.
Ms. Martinsen worked as an office manager for a laundry-equipment company. She is alleged to have started off taking money from petty cash, I wonder was that from the coin machines, and then crossed the line as most crime divas they become more daring as they go un-caught, to writing checks to herself and depositing them into her own bank account. She allegedly withdrew funds from employees payroll marked for their 401k, but kept the money for herself. I’m sure she has some co-workers pissed off.
At the time of the investigation her bank account was empty. It is stated that she had sent most of the $120,000 to someone in Mexico.
Ms. Martinsen could be facing 10 years in prison.
Since, I started this blog and had the opportunity to research crime cases I have also read many of the comments people are leaving and very few have empathy for these women. That is human nature, I guess, to not care and to be angry when you don’t know a person and to be judgmental of their action that is, until it’s someone you know. Yes, there is disbelief because you know more about that person other than they stole something.
If we are going to help put a stop to white collar-crimes we must look beyond our anger and disbelief and find out why and what can be done, then we can move forward with an understanding
The mission of this site is to prevent professional, educated, and career-minded females from committing white-collar crimes; to educate, and confabulate with others who have an interest in this epic situation and who has a desire to make a difference.
