Female White-Collar Crime Divas-Mordern Day Thieves

Sophisticated Fraud Scheme! 5 years in Prison!!!

ham     This is the kind of crimes we are trying to prevent.  This crime went on well over one and a half  decade and now she will spend half a decade locked up.

     Today’s CrimeDiva, Michele Spurgeon, 58, from Indianapolis, was charged with defrauding a business of nearly $1.5 million via a bank fraud scheme and hiding her assets from the IRS [definitely a recipes for trouble] through a tax fraud scheme. Ms. Spurgeon was sentenced to 60 months (five years) in federal prison and has been ordered to pay more than $1.7 million in restitution to the victim [company], and the government.

According to the records, during the years 1996 through 2011, Ms. Spurgeon process ‘all checks’ [this is a practice these companies should stop that is, having one person manage all their accounting or handling of the funds], made payable to the company, but would withhold some of these checks, not depositing them into the company’s bank accounts. Instead, she would deposit the checks into a business account for a fraudulent company that she created to commit the fraud.  She would alter some of the checks payable to her employer, making them appear as if they were payable to her  company. She also would make adjustments to her employer’s accounting records to conceal the fraudulent deposits. In total, Ms. Spurgeon, deposited at least $1,429,326 in checks intended for her employer into her bank account. Ms. Spurgeon failed to report this additional money to the Internal Revenue Service.

Those of you that have been following this blog, I’m sure, see the familiar pattern and sadly, the  bad decision these professional women have and are making. As we now know it takes a lot of work covering up these crimes, but in reality it is the covering-up that provides the evidence against them [defendants].

Best thing is to live within your means otherwise you will end up in prison.

As I mentioned in this blog’s mission statement we want to prevent these crimes from occurring and in order for us to do that we have to get the word out there. Will you help me do that? All you need to do is tell others about this site and you can also help by purchasing a CrimeDivas T-shirt (only $12, click on shirt) wear it, and start a conversation about prevent white-collar crime.Divas shirts
