Female White-Collar Crime Divas-Mordern Day Thieves
The saying, you can run, but you can’t hide, pans out to be true. CrimeDiva, Wanda Lee Ann Podgurski, 60, of Manhattan Beach, CA, was found guilty by jury of 29 felony counts of insurance fraud and sentenced to 20 years in the state prison took flight and was on the run. As I reported earlier last month Unfortunately, she left a stupid remark on Twitter challenging officials, “Caught me if you can!” In less than a month Ms. Podgurski was arrested in Mexico where officials had tracked her down from the Twitter location from her message. Sounds like she wanted to be apprehended.
Ms. Podgurski, was brought back to the US and appeared in court with her wrists in handcuffs and shackled, yes, just like a slave, to face charges for not appearing in court, which could add 2 more plus years to her already twenty years.
I can imagine the fear of a 60-year-old woman facing the knowledge that she will more than likely die in prison, given 20 years. She must have panicked in fear, or decided to have her last fun in freedom. She is now in custody until time is up. Whether that is freedom of natural life or freedom through death.
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.
