Female White-Collar Crime Divas-Mordern Day Thieves
The headline speaks for itself, but that’s only part of what the prosecutor stated was committed by today’s CrimeDiva, Tara Moore, 42, of La Jolla, CA.
According to records, Ms. Moore was employed as a bookkeeper at the La Jolla restaurant and wrote checks to herself, but trying to be smart deposited the checks into an investment business account that supposedly had been closed, then transferred the money into her personal account. [Sure way to leave a paper trail.] In addition to that, Ms. Moore ran a scam on her ex-mother-in-law to the sum of $1.8 million, telling the elderly woman she was putting the funds into property investment and to top that off, Ms. Moore collected $75,000 from an insurance policy from a pervious husband, though she had remarried. [I’m not sure if that’s illegal, being the funds belong to the person whose named as beneficiary, I believe].
Ms. Moore took this case to trial [Nine weeks], was then convicted of eight felony charges, white-collar crime enhancement [Committing multi-crimes]. Immediately after the reading of the conviction, Ms. Moore was handcuffed and carried off to jail, where she will stay until she’s transferred to prison, where she could serve up to 20 years.
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.
