Female White-Collar Crime Divas-Mordern Day Thieves
We have all seen the remnants of a burned house. We rarely think it was an act of arson, an purposeful act by a person to make an insurance claim. However, more and more this is often the case. Again, this is an act of greed and is destructive to the community, and people lives including the person who committed the crime.
This is a follow-up to a earlier post, as I stated I would provide the out-come.
Today’s CrimeDiva Beth Galloway, 42, of Camanche Iowa was found guilty in an insurance fraud. Ms. Galloway was involved in a fire that destroyed her boyfriend’s vacant house.
Ms. Galloway was convicted by jury of mail fraud, using fire to commit mail fraud and conspiracy to commit money laundering. If you recall, Ms. Galloway drove a minor twice to the vacant house to set it on fire, but the fire didn’t set-off. Eventually her boyfriend James Plowers set the fire to the house. They collected more than $66,000 from his insurance company to cover the loss. Ms. Galloway will be sentenced later this month. Mr. Plowers was given 13 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.
