Update: New Hampshire Woman Sentenced In $300K Swim & Tennis Club Embezzlement Case

Rebecca McGuire, 52, of Amherst, New Hampshire, has been sentenced to to three concurrent 3 1⁄2-to 7-year terms for embezzling $311,500 from the Jasper Valley Swim and Tennis Club where she had been employed as a volunteer treasurer. A two year investigation revealed that over a nearly ten year period, McGuire had withdrawn cash and written at least 656 fraudulent checks on Jasper Valley's accounts to cash or to herself. According to McGuire's attorney, she has been making arrangements to satisfy the $300,000 restitution order. A separate civil suit by Jasper Valley to recover the loss has reportedly been settled. McGuire who was originally arrested and indicted last November, plead guilty three felony counts of "theft by unauthorized taking" in August 2009.

Where is Becky's husband? Why was she hugging a relative just prior to sentencing? Was Charlie there to support her? Charlie should have been the one comforting her just before sentencing.

Charlie,

You have my empathy and compassion. I am so sorry your family has to go thru all this heartache. My heart breaks for you to see your wife in obvious despair. You and your family are in my prayers.

They McGuires haven't changed their lifestyle. They let Becky's sister and her mother in law pay back the money instead of selling their house in the Flume and Martha's Vineyard. Still taking....

someone who knows said...

OK, the house in The Flume is their "primary" residence and Charlie wants his children to have the security and normalcy that they need to thrive as young adults should. As for the house in The Vineyard, that is his "income." That is probably what he is using to pay back his mother, who loves him, and his sister in law. He wants the homes for his children, however, if he were to put up either home for sale, given the economy, he would take a huge loss of equity. I support Charlie keeping his homes.

to the ignorant person who left the first comment, that is my uncle Chip who my aunt Becky hadnt seen for quite some time because they weren't talking for a while. My uncle charlie was there as well, just not in this photo quickly taken by some nosy lady who, quite frankly, should have minded her own business instead of butting in to private family matters. I hope she knows that if she had any class at all she would never have posted this picture.

To the the relative who scolded Anonymous on taking a picture:

You said "...you should have minded your own business instead of butting into private family matters." Last time I checked, a felony trial and conviction is not a "private family matter." What about any of this is a private family matter?! That is an unbelievable statement, talking about a woman who stole hundreds of thousands of dollars from hundreds of hard working people who just wanted a place for their kids to swim and play. She should be placed in a stock the village square and the victims should be allowed to throw rotten cabbage at her shaved head.

The other thing that is hilarious is all of the relatives posting here at this site in sympathy for Becky...a site designed to inform and shame these white collar criminal scum who selfishly cheat and steal to get ahead the easy way. Why don't you post these at a site you make called "poorbecky.com".

Anonymous said...

Oh yes...let's talk about the "class" of somebody snapping a picture of a criminal. Are you kidding me? This b1tch is lucky that the members of the club didn't lynch her. She is entitled to no respect based on the magnitude of her greed. What a rotten evil woman she is. And what of her husband? Are we supposed to believe he had no clue that his old lady was a crook? Please, he should be locked up too as he enjoyed the fruits of her criminal ways. For that matter, the kid's college tuitions were likely paid by the Jasper Valley members as well. Who gives a rats toukus if "Charlie" needs those homes to secure his children. His "children" are adults. They should have taken care of Becky's actions by selling their property and settling their debts themselves, rather than sucking off some sappy family members. What a bunch of losers.

Charlie had no idea and I believe him.

I have known the McGuires for quite a long time. Alex was 6 months old when I met them. They could have sold a house cover themselves. They built them long ago when the market was not as high as today. The only reason they would not make moiney is if they have borrowed against the houses when the market was its highest. they had options. If they could have borrowed that money from family why did she need to take it in the first place? I think she had become used to a lifestyle that she couldn't afford anymore, but couldn't let the oustside know. That is greed.

She got what she deserved! She should have the same consequences
as anyone else. Just because she lives in a wealthy Amherst neighborhood? I am glad that didn't play in her favor.

I do however feel bad for the kids for half their life Mom was a thief. She had to keep the lifestyle she created for them going somehow.


I do think Charlie knew in some way.How could he not?

CC said...

Charlie did not know what his wife was doing, Becky hid it from him. I know Charlie and I believe him. Charlie has told me he did not know; if I thought for a second that he did, I would not support him. He didn't know.

I really don't believe he didn't know. How did he think they could afford everything and more. From what I have heard she spent money like crazy throwing over the top birthday parties shopping adventures. I think he knew, but doesn't want to get in trouble.

to the rude person who responded to a relative,

last I checked, im pretty sure you havent known my aunt for 16 years and you dont know what she is like. She is only human and humans make mistakes all the time, I have and you probably have as well. I dont know why all of you have to insult her in such a way. Im not condoning what she did, but she has been taking the steps to repent for her actions for almost a year now, as well as seeing a therapist.

And to the other person who was talking about class, I can see you have a whole lot of it based on what you wrote. Every human being is entitled to some respect. And by the way, my cousins, her kids, got into college through intellect and athletic scholarships, not through what she stole. Just because you cant be nearly as intelligent and respectful as them doesnt mean you need to be such a SoB. You are the real loser here.

Anonymous said...

The heck Charlie didn't know - open your eyes and get your head out of the sand. How did he think the mortgage was getting paid each month, the mortgage fairy? Charlie had to know based on his income (or lack of) that wasn't enough for the mortgage, living expenses and Becky's shopping expenses. What Becky spent on her clothes and hair alone was enough to feed a small country each and every season.

To "a relative" who thinks I am being mean to her aunt...

You are right, I have not known your aunt for 16 years...and I am glad that I haven't, because somewhere along the line in knowing her it seems that there may have been a high probability that I would have 'lost' some money if you know what I mean. My advice to you is to put a padlock on your piggy bank because that OCD where you just need to keep up with the Jones's is hard thing to control!

And by the way, I stand by my comment that taking a picture of someone at the courthouse for a felony embezzlement case is not a "private family matter".

a relative said...

to anonymous who makes assumptions about people without really knowing them,
that is probably the most retarded comment i have ever heard. Aunt Becky has never stolen from anyone in our family. And my mother happens to be her sister and it is not a Jones family OCD as you have put it. It is a personal problem that my aunt had and she needs to deal with it on her own time.

First of all, you don't have to speak to me in such a derogative way. My eyes are open, and my head is not in the "sand."

I know Charlie, you don't, and I know that he had NO knowledge of his wife's thefts. First of all, what Becky spends is her income not his. Is he supposed to keep track of everything she spends? What she spends on clothing and hair and parties is her money, and Charlie does earn his own.

I know for a "fact" that Charlie didn't know because I "know" Charlie. And you Anon, don't have to insult my intelligenceit, is very offensive.

Charlie is someone I know and I'm going to defend him against someone making slanderous comments about him.

To a relative...

Yeah that is good for you that Aunt Becky has never stolen from anyone in the family...however it is bad for the rest of society - - like those at Jasper who she stole from. I don't know her personally, but (1) I do know that she embezzled $311k from innocent hard working people, and (2) she clearly believed that she could just pay back the money without any consequences for her actions.

I hope she has a lot of time to think about what a scum she is while she sits in her cell. Maybe she will steal Big Bertha's hair brush and find out what justice means in prison!

As far as my OCD comment...wasn't it one aspect of her defense that she has OCD where she wants to "keep up with the Jones"? Maybe I got that wrong, but I thought I read she had expert testimony to that effect. That is what I was referring to...she is the one that threw that out there, not me.

The embezzling "whisperings within" from her similar genes might lead her down the same path unless we all teach her how to live her life. God knows she has had at least one bad role model.

To the anonymous woman who was giving CC a hard time;

Charlie doesn't really belong to Becky anymore given that she's due to spend at least the next 3 1/2 years in a prison cell.

Anonymous said...

To Becky's relative:

I have a feeling you haven't been told the entire truth.

Fast forward to the end of the story. She apologized to her friends and family, but not to the Victims of her theft. This indicates that she is sorry she got caught, but not sorry that she hurt the people from whom she stole the money. This lack of remorse is why so many people are angry. Her lack of remorse is why she is in prison.

What she did is the equivalent of identity theft. I would be if she stole your parents ID, took all their money, opened accounts so they owed even more, and the police stepped in one minute before the bank knocked on your door saying you had to get out of the house, it was owned by the bank now. She used this stolen money to give her kids an upscale lifestyle, and even purchase a luxury home, which a friend of the family now mentions that it is "investment income". Income from stolen property.

She did even more illegal things, but as part of the plea, they weren't part of the case.

All of this involves repeated lying, cheating and stealing, and don't forget she must have lied, or omitted telling the truth to her immediate family.

She never showed remorse, and according to you, she has been getting "help" for a year, but she was busted TWO years ago.

These people are a menace to society and she is right where she belongs. She only stopped when she got caught. There is a name for someone who does not care what effect her actions have on other people. Ask your mother what it is.

Anonymous said...

There is no way this clown Charlie didn't know his scumbag wife was a thieving pig. I believe his career includes a part time photography gig and not a lot else. How the hell did he think all the bills got paid? He probably just didn't care because it meant he didn't have to go out and earn money to support their lifestyle...he had a witch stealing from people to take care of that. Even if you are related to this sorry excuse for a b1tch, you have to look at it from the perspective of the club members. Writing over 600 checks is not a "mistake." It is calculated, cold, and repetitive act of theft. She really is only sorry she got caught and her decade old gravy train ran out.

When Becky apologized to her friends and family, did she apologize to her husband as well?

If he stays with that woman out of some senseless sense of obligation, then I pity him. Becky doesn't love him, she loves money, prestige, and priveledge. She doesn't love Charlie.

As long as he stays in that loveless marriage, he isn't living.

I'm sorry Charlie, I'm all mixed up. My support is with you and your family. I never wanted your wife to go to prison, I felt as you and your family did on that one. I agreed with the home confinement and community service. I think you're wife deserves compassion rather than contempt. You know I support you 100% no matter what. My heart still breaks for you. I'm all mixed up and a bit of an emotional wreck. And of course Becky loves you; what a mean thing for planes/trains to say.

reality check said...

To a relativef (a he)...

Oh you are a "he"? Thanks for pointing that out to me because it makes a big difference at the end of the day.

Look...you are a 16 years old boy without much life experience. I'm glad that you think your Auntie Becky is a good role model...but let me tell you something - I am not a convicted felon. And I am pretty sure that convicted felons are NOT good role models. She probably gave you good presents during the holidays...maybe slipped you a $10 bill or even a $50 bill here and there, and that influenced your twisted opinion of her...but it could have been stolen money. So I would not be so impressed with her charity towards you.

So do you honestly contend that someone who is a convicted felon is a good role model? I want you to explain that to me if you have the ability to do so. No one, even Becky, contends that she has been falsely accused and convicted. She spent a decade stealing money from honest citizens - - HOW does that make her a good role model? I want to try to understand what your logic is, because if you make a good point I may change my mind and I will fight for her early release.

Please help to educate me and other posters here...

Dear Relative..

Due to your aunt's embezzlement, all paychecks at the end of the summer bounced. So, for all the kids your age who got up and did an honest day's work as lifeguards, maintanence or snack bar employees, they got zero money for it. They probably even had to pay the bank for a bounced check fee. So Becky essential stole from children. How would you feel if you missed a day at the beach with your friends, and found out someone stole your pay? and you were the one who was working?

There once was a Treasurer at Jasper,
Embezzlement skills she would master,
The books started to stink,
Becky’s now in the brink,
And her biggest regret is they caught her.

Chris Marquet said...

Folks:

Please try to be civil. It is hard enough trying to keep the blog updated without having to deal with inappropriate posts - which I delete when I see them.

Bottom line on this case, it seems to me, is that Becky got what was coming to her and justice was served. That doesn't make the club or the many other folks affected by her thefts whole, but it certainly sets an example and shows that "what goes around, comes around."

I am afraid that I am not terribly sympathetic to her cause and, as one poster put it rightly, use this blog to expose white collar criminals, particularly embezzlers.

I am pleased that so many people have taken an interest in this case, but let's keep it clean.

CC said...

I have somewhat of a different opinion Chris;

I don't think Becky should have gone to prison but perhaps I'm unique to have the empathy and compassion I possess. I thought home confinement and community service would have been more appropiate. I think the prison sentence was too harsh and excessive. I feel for her family, I feel for her husband. I think she's a good person who just made a mistake. She suffers from depression and mood disorders. She can't get better in a prison cell and at home she'd have the support of her family. She is deeply remorseful and her time would have been better served performing community service. Reading about her sentencing in the Cabinet Press made me cry. I have nothing but empathy and compassion for her entire family. My heart breaks for her family. Maybe I'm a bit more connected b/c I know her husband but just by reading about her case, I feel I've gotten to know Becky. I have a lot of compassion for her. She should be at home with her family and getting therapy. Putting her in prison amounts to nothing more than retaliation. Some of the indiivuals who post out here are cruel and vile and offensive.

My personal opinion: Becky has already paid for her crime, she should be home with her family.

Anonymous said...

Where is your compassion for the victims? The Cabinet did not interview any of the victims,they just wrote about what happened at the sentencing hearing, in which she admitted guilt to three class A felonies. Three.

It is intersting that you consider yourself a special person.

She didn't make a "mistake", she made 656 illegal, greedy transactions. Maybe she was depressed because she had such an unethical way of life. She never got help for this, and no one in her family helped her by making sure she got help for her depression while she was frolicking in her two luxury homes the entire 10 ten years she was boosting from hardworking people by being decietful.

The judge didn't agree with any of the excuses she presented. I didn't see any remorse toward the victims. She will be home on house arrest after her prison sentence, and her family will be tending to her. Maybe not so much that see that she is getting better, but she owes them money.

To clarify - Becky has NEVER apologized or given any explanation to her friends. We are still waiting.

She got what she deserved...hands down said...

Becky McGuire deserves to be in jail. She stole $311,000+ dollars from her friends and club members. If she wasn't so obcessed with keeping up her apperance and her daugthers apperance and giving her everything she wanted than most likely wouldn't be where she is. She had to have the "best" at her community members expense. Maybe if she actually had a real steady job and earned her money honestly than she would have been able to afford the luxuries she wanted and "needed" to have.

As for her niece and nephews commenting you can tell that your Aunt Becky was a "good role model" with the way your speaking. That's so appauling to see a 16 year old talk like that using phrases like "douche bag" and "I hope you rot in hell you dirty piece of trash". Your aunt did this to herself. You need to accept and understand that. People are very mad at her. She stole from some of her closest friends. How would you feel if you were betrayed like that?

CC said...

Becky is deeply remorseful, and I believe she did apologize to her victims. She expressed remorse and stated she was sorry after she apologized for causing pain to her family and friends. I have a 21 year old daughter and I want to give her everything I can. I'm lucky that I have both my parents still in good health who help me out. It's normal to want to give your children everything you can.

Becky needs to be forgiven; she's only human. Where there is injury, there is "freedom" in forgiveness. Forgive her.

Everyone wants what is best for their kids. Doesn't make it right to steal from other people to give it to them.

The kids are innocent in all this. Their mother stole, not them. She did, however, drag their names into the public record when she had them beg for leniency for her. Once their names got in the paper, it is in cyberspace forever.

I'm sure after a few christmases visiting their mother in the brink, with all the other felons, and no goodies from her for a few years, and no way to hide her aging with haircolor and makeup, the kids will realize that a life of crime does not get you ahead.

Becky did apologize to her victims. How can anyone not see that?

“Somehow I lost my way ... I’ve hurt and disappointed a lot of people. I want to apologize, and now, try to understand this.

That is an "obvious" apology to Jasper Valley. That apology came after she apologized to her family and friends. I can see that so clearly, she has apolgized to her victims. So yes, you have missed it.

She shouldn't even be in prison, her punishment is overly harsh and excessive. It's a retaliative sentenced, it is not fair it is not appropiate. She should be at home with family and getting treatment. I still stand by my original comment about Charlie. Charlie never knew about Becky's embezzling. He couldn't have because if he did, he would have gotten Becky help.

“I don’t know what else to say, except ... I’m sorry.”

"I'm sorry" could be interpreted as "I'm sorry I'm going to prison".

I'm sorry I stole from the members of Jasper Valley" is a direct apology. CC, why don't you let the victims decide if they recieved an apology.

You fancy yourself a sympathetic and compassionate person, but you claim others that disagree with you as vile, and consequences of breaking the law (656 times, minimum) as retaliatory. The judge didn't buy a word or her defense.

As you describe yourself, you are mixed up! And kinda confused it you "see" an apology where there is none, because you want to believe, erroneously, that the McGuires are good people. One is a thief, the other a leech, and if I were you I would hide my pocketbook and blank checks!

CC said...

Ok, I support Charlie and his family. I thought Becky apologized to others when expressing that she was sorry for hurting a lot of people. That was after she apologized to her family. As for the posts I referred to as vile--
those were very specific ones were one poster wanted to "throw rotten cabbage" at her in a village square. The other vile post (2) was the was the individual who referred to Becky in very derogatory adjectives (b!tch and thieving pig). I thought that was very uncalled for.

As for referring to Charlie as a leech. He's not like that at all. I'd give him the shirt off my back. I'd give him anything he wanted from me. He didn't know his wife was writing checks to herself, if he did, he would have corrected the situation and gotten Becky help. If Charlie wanted my checkbook, I'd give it to him. He is someone I would trust with my life.

Anonymous said...

I don't call reading a "written statement" in court an appropriate apology. Doesn't seem very heartfelt or remorseful to me. Becky should be sending a handwritten apology to the Jasper Valley community as well as her friends. They have received NOTHING! They deserve an explanation, not "I lost my way". She deserves to be right where she is with the rest of the criminals, not at home enjoying her pampered life paid for by others.

Maybe Chuckie didn't know, but apparently he didn't ask any questions either. In a way, he was complicit in the fact that he must have signed tax returns, and realized something didn't add up. So, either he did know, and didn't care because he was benefitting from it, or he didn't know, because the lights are on but no one is home. Either way you choose, his wife is in prison for stealing from her community, and practically, singlehandedly, bankrupting a place where hardworking families provided for their children to play during the summer. You should ask around, and even ask your honey Charlie, all the details. Becky also falsified many documents, forged signatures, and lied about it many many times. She stole at least once a week for over 500 weeks. That means she put her hand in the till and stole over 600 times, and every single transaction involved a forgery. That is not a "mistake" that needs "compassion".

Real smart that Charlie must be. The payments to the mortgage company are not even coming out of his checkbook - how the hell did he think the mortgage was getting paid each month. He knew exactly how much money he made, he had to know it was not enough to cover the mortgage.

Anonymous said...

Becky committed a crime. It was selfish and total lacking in concern for those who she stole from. And she's paying the price for it. She has to repay what she stole, serve 3 1/2 years in jail and carry a felony conviction for the rest of her life.

But it's easy to throw the first stone. Where were the officers? Where was the membership? She wrote an average of 5 checks a month for ten years. She wasn't that sophisticated about it as she wrote checks directly to her mortgage company. And the club didn't catch on until PSNH called to say they were shutting off the lights?

There's a lot to be embarrassed about here and there's a little bit of blame to go around for everyone. It's a sad commentary on all of us.

And guess what? We're doing the same thing with the bozos we're sending to Congress. Everyone needs to wake up and pay attention because we all live in glass houses.

CC said...

Is it not impossible that Becky was covering the mortgage expense and Charlie covered other expenses, as many married couples cover different bills? Is it not possible that Charlie thought his wife was paying the mortgage out of her income that she was earning (not stealing) from her employment at JVST? Is that not possible?

The board is all voluntary, they meet once a month, small town trust each other stuff. None the less the amount of money that was stolen is significant and jail time warranted, more than that she stole from the people she socialized with,her so called friends. The husband had to know, what spouse doesn't know about $30,000 extra in the family kitty every year, come on ! No specific apology to JVST members is a classic I am sorry I got caught, just plain thievery and greed, and a failure as a parent.

I would never know that everything was volunteer at Jasper because I live in Massachusetts. What I am is a broken-hearted girlfriend of Charlie's. I thought Becky's position was a paid position and my boyfriend (Charlie) lied about it. Charlie told me he didn't know his wife embezzeled and I believed him. Becaused I loved him.

I have not played this blog. The questions I have asked have helped to arrive to the place I am now. I did not know JVST positions were volunteer positions. I had to ask the questions I asked to come to terms with what Charlie told me. I thought Becky's position as a treasurer was a paid position and if I hadn't asked in my last comment about her paying the mortgage, I never would have gotten the answer to my question.

So quite honestly, my heart is so broken that for the last year of my life I have cried myself to sleep over this man. I will cry myself to sleep tonight after I log off. If you had any idea how badly this hurts me still, you would not be calling me a "fraud."

Oh and just one other thing "anonymous,"....I have the courage to claim every comment I post with my initials. You didn't claim yours at all other than "anonymous."

I'm sorry Charlie...

Anonymous said...

CC, the good news is that Charlie is single for the next couple of years while his evil crook of an old lady makes some friends in Goffstown. Might be a great chance to rekindle that role as mistress. Chances of getting caught by Becky are one in a million. Go for it gal!!! Ol' Chuckie probably has wads of cash hidden all over their palace on The Flume....maybe you and the Chuckster and go take a vacation or something. Best of luck!

CC,
think about it
of all the ways to communicate, you are trying to send a message to your married friend through a comment section of a blog for convicted felons, and this case his wife is the felon?

CC said...

I am expressing my support for Charlie and his family. I think the outcome from this is tragic, all of it. I am so sorry Becky felt the need to do this, I am sorry for her victims. I also feel very bad for her family. I do openly support Charlie; this whole thing is devastating for his family. I don't know what Charlie knew or didn't know but I'd still trust him with my life and give him my last dollar if he needed it. I support him.

Thankyou for the compliment...such kind words. Anything else anon?

Anonymous said...

So very sad. Effected so many people. All Becky had to do was truly apologize to her closest friends. She didn't even need an excuse. Just a heartfelt apology. She had such wonderful people surrounding her during these many years..just an apology. One on one. If that would have happened, there would have been more support. We must all keep in mind, she only stopped because she was caught. Her apology in court was because she was caught. To this day, her closest friends have waited for "that call." It is so sad, not only for her children, but for those outside her family who trusted her. 656 checks written wasn't greed but a cycle of obssessively keeping up appearances with friends who would have been there with or without those false pretenses. This is a sicknesses, but if she truly was admitting the sickness, she would converse with those directly, that she hurt most. Her closest friends. I guess she is still trying to "keep up appearances." So very sad.

Great post - agree with all your thoughts Anon.

To anon who called me a "sap"--

Charlie was not convicted of any felony, his wife was. Maybe you label him as a crook, I give him the benefit of the doubt. You can't charge spouses of convicted felons with crimes just because you label them a family of crooks.

I trust Charlie, I support Charlie and I'd give him my last dollar if he needed it. It doesn't make me a sap because I trust someone who wasn't convicted of a felony.

Bottom Line CC is that you truly need to get a life. This is not the place for you to do whatever it is you are doing. I assume Charlie isn't keeping up with this site so maybe you should find another outlet for your obsession with him.

CC said...

Bottom line:

I do have a life, I work 60-70 hours a week so I can keep up with MY mortgage payments. You don't think I have a life because I claim my posts but there are annonymous posters that post over and over again, probably such as yourself. So maybe you need to go out and get a life. I do not have an obsession with Charlie because I feel the need to defend him. However, you are right and I need to move on as painful as it is for me. I do have a life, thankyou for so aptly pointing that out for me.

I've just chosen to defend Charlie and still would not back down and continue to defend him. He has told me he did not know and based on knowing him personally, I believe he did not know. Clearly, my view is one that is the path less traveled but I stand by it, and I support Charlie 100%. He deserves to recover from this and get his life back together and for that I wish him the best of luck.

CC said...

Would like to add some clarity to my last comment. I had a relationship with Charlie; I was his girlfriend and he made me "happy." There is no proper term for a woman who sleeps with a married man other than someone malicious posting who has to resort to name calling. If one of my short-comings is choosing to see a married man, that only serves to show that I am, indeed, human. I LOVED Charlie and I don't regret a moment of my time that I've spent with him.

I wish Charlie the best of luck in getting his life back together, and I hope that his marriage stays intact. As for myself, my new-year resolution is to never see another married man as a potential mate. I've learned my lesson.

I've changed my mind---I think Charlie knew all along.

A question for Chris - Are embezzlers required to pay IRS taxes on the money they stole?

Chris Marquet said...

Yes. In fact, the government often adds criminal chrages of tax evasion in these cases and hits the defendants for back taxes on the money they stole and did not report.

Anonymous said...

Thank you for your quick response Chris. How and when are they notified of such cases?

Chris Marquet said...

When it happens, it is usually part of the criminal prosecution. It does not appear that that is the case here.

Let's talk about those speeding tickets that Mr. McGuire likes to collect. Mr. McGuire is such a speed-demon that he flipped his jeep in the winter of 2006. He flipped his jeep with his then minor son in the vehicle. He put his own son's life in jeopardy by speeding in the winter and flipping his jeep on black ice. If he had any regard for the "law", he wouldn't speed. Speeding is breaking the law and Mr. McGuire does it indiscriminately. He refers to police officers who patrol the streets and highways as "bastards." His only concern with obeying the traffic laws is not getting caught.

Mr. McGuire should consider purchasing an ML next time around;
ML's don't flip.

Drumroll--

$33,000.00 net income per peak summer rental season !!!!

Anonymous said...

Let's continue to do the math;

In the last 10 years, Mr. & Mrs. McGuire's peak summer seasonal rentals have yielded them $333,000.00. In the last 15 years that amount jumps to $499,000.00 since they've been enjoying rental income since 1994. That's half a MILLION dollars in the last 15 years of summer rental "income".

There are people that don't earn that in a lifetime.

Mr. and Mrs. McGuire had work done to their home on the Flume in April 2008. Mrs. McGuire was already under investigation and terminated from her "volunteer" position as treasurer from Jasper Valley Swim & Tennis Club. So while the club fell into disrepair due to the fact that Mrs. McGuire raided the maintenance fund of $80,000. in insurance money awarded after a barn burned down, Mr. McGuire was spending money to maintain repairs on his home. Now the question is, whose money was Mr. McGuire spending to keep up with the maintenance expenses on "his" home? And just a word of reminder, JVST imposed a $285.00 assessment fee on top of members' regular membership fee.

And now, here is a testimonial from Charles F. McGuire known affectionately by a select few as "CFM".

My name is Charles McGuire and I interviewed several contractors for carpentry and painting at our home in Amherst, NH. Dino Frioni impressed me with his professionalism, both in working with him to quote the job and the quality of the work done. He showed up when he said he would, worked quickly and communicated well about options and what he was doing. (Incidentally, when I commented on the fact that I might be able to think up a way to access the peak of my house, but not 'gutsy' enough to 'walk the plank', Dino told me why he has no fear of heights: He was a paratrooper in the Italian Air Force!)

I would recommend that you speak to Dino and his crew for any home improvement work you may be considering.

Sincerely,

Charles McGuire, Amherst, NH

A word of advice to anyone who is considering contracting Mr. McGuire's services:

In early spring of 2008, Mr. McGuire received a request to take down some portraits off his web-site which he did not have permission to use. His response was that the portraits were on there for 5 years and she never complained before. Reluctantly, I believe he took down the portraits.

When a photographer plans to use his work to promote himself, therefore, to promote his "income", he is legally bound to disclose such information and to obtain the potential customer's permission. In this circumstance, it is customary to reduce the fee of services, or charge no fee at all for the service. It is suppose to be a "mutually" beneficial exchange for both client and photographer. But Charles McGuire does not play fair, and therefore, is NOT an ethical photographer. All he cares about is "his" bottom line.

Just one more bit of information; for the last 10 to 12 years, Mr. McGuire has been "semi-retired". He didn't try real hard to get up in the morning and work to support his extravagant lifestyle, or that pretty little Porsche he drives around in. For the last 10 years, Mrs. McGuire has been writing checks to herself or to cash--656 checks. Neither one of them really "earned" an income of their own. In fact, one can conclude that Mr. McGuire's semi-retirement was financed almost entirely by JVST, which is financed by it's members who have agreed to pay an assessment fee of $285.00 on top of their already regular membership fee.

Dumbest spouse in America ?????

I want to congratulate the individual who has made the very detailed last several posts. For anyone to defend Charles McGuire as innocent here, you have to be living with your head in the Martha's Vineyard sand. I'm quite frankly shocked he wasn't indicted as well as a knowing accomplice. You simply can't live the lifestyle the McQuire's did on the income's of a seasonal club treasurer and a part-time photographer.
The more details that people know about crooks like the McQuires... the better off the public is.

Anonymous said...

Just to be clear here - Becky's position as the seasonal club treasurer was NOT a paying position. None of the positions are paying with the exception that the President and Treasurer received a "free summer membership". Maybe Becky should be paying back for all those "free memberships" she received. Those memberships could have gone to some deserving family who couldn't afford the membership.

Just curious - is there anyone else out there that thinks the McGuires should pay the IRS income tax on the money they stole and used as income for ten years?

And 7,500.00 to Jasper Valley for the ten years "free" membership given to Mrs. McGuire and her family for her volunteer position as club treasurer.

Clearly, Mr. McGuire possesses a presumption of "self-entitlement". Just think, how bold of him, how confidant to post on the web, in essence, to "brag" about work he is having done on his home while JVST club falls into disrepair. Dino Frioni is probably the best of contractors that money can buy, and I'm sure it cost a lot of money to have Dino and his crew take care of Mr. McGuire's home improvement needs. I'm sure the work is well worth the money spent, the question is, "whose" money is Mr. McGuire spending to improve his home. Well the answer requires little though---Jasper Valley Swim & Tennis Club payed for Dino Frioni to improve Mr. McGuire's home, i.e.; the imposed $285.00 additional fee required to keep JVST open. Here's a thought-- Mr. McGuire should have to pay back the additional fees imposed on members for every single member or family membership.

Just as Mrs. McGuire blatently bragged about trips to the Vineyard, so to does Mr. McGuire about spending money to improve his home. And how arrogant is it of him to post his "self-indulgence" on the web? Not very 'smaaart'...probably doesn't realize that once posted to the web, things are there forever!

What is it like to have that air of arrogance, to be so self-assured that you can do anything you want, like hire a contractor for home improvement with "stolen" money, and it's all gonna fly under the radar. Never in your wildest imagination would you ever think that someone like me would call someone like you ---"out".

Funny thing about karma, when you use or hurt people, karma has a way of making itself back to you, like a hard equestrian kick jolting you back into reality.

Great points all the way around. Becky is clearly taking an extended vacation in Goffstown, but Chuckie boy is still living like a king and they have not lost any of their assets (homes.) I find that mind boggling. Must be great to have family members with deep pockets and no brains, allowing these crooks to not have to pay the ultimate price and pay back the money themselves.

Just an interesting note about the income tax question; A parent or relative is only allowed to give $10,000. tax-free in any given year. If a parent gives more than $10,000. (Mr. McGuire's mom), Mr. McGuire has a legal obligation to pay taxes on the money in excess of $10,000.

But then again, Mr. McGuire is no stranger to breaking the law.

Anonymous said...

I have to correct myself--the donor who gifts the money to a family member is responsible for paying the taxes to the IRS. They have to file a federal tax form known as a 709 and the gift must be documented or the donor could face stiff penalties. The monetary gift could be written so that the burden of paying the gift-taxes shifts to the recipient by an attorney.

The IRS is very sensitive to monetary gifts made by family members as well as loans. If Mr. McGuire's family members loaned him the money, it has to be fully documented and the recipient has to pay the minimum interest rate which is established by the IRS. The IRS imposes this interest rate because it is now considered interest income for which the lender is now responsible to pay taxes for. If the lender fails to include the interest rate in the loan, the IRS will impose an imputed interest rate which would be the current market interest rate at the time the loan was made.
The lender is responsible for paying the taxes.

Mr. McGuire cannot hide this transfer of money without either himself or his family members being responsible for paying the IRS. Personally, I think it is deplorable for this "man" to take such large sums of money from his elderly mother. He is taking retirement money away from his 76 year old mother and possibly causing her significant tax complications. Very selfish....

Anonymous said...

Well, it is all going to end badly, as it does for all sociopaths. With no "income", there is no money for two houses, their upkeep, expensive cars, clothes or even money for the kids that are in expensive schools. All those people you tried to impress by showing off expensive items are not longer impressed once they realized it came from stealing from hardworking people. It is going to be ugly, especially for the kids.

Anonymous said...

Mr. McGuire is currently receiving financial aid for both kids in their expensive colleges. Alex is in her third year at Skidmore in Saratoga Springs and has been receiving financial aid to attend there while Mrs. McGuire was writing checks to herself so her husband could hire Dino Frioni to do work on their primary residence, buy washing machines for the vacation home in Martha's Vineyard September of 2009, and collect $33,000.00 in investment income for seasonal summer rentals not entirely reported, if reported at all as income. Essentially, lying on a college financial aid application to take money AWAY from a legitmate family in financial need of financial aid who could not otherwise send their son or daughter to their first choice college without it.

Charles McGuire does NOT report his income and is no better than Mrs. McGuire who wrote checks totaling $311,500.00--- all the while filing an application for financial aid. Not to mention for the last 15 years, the McGuire's have earned approximately $500,000 in investment income from seasonal summer rentals in the Vineyard. That income absolutely was NOT reported when acquiring financial aid from Skidmore for their daughter Alex. Essentially, the financial aid that Alex received diaabled an "honest" family from being able to send their son or daughter to Skidmore.

The McGuire's did not report their income, thus taking away the hopes and dreams of kids who can not otherwise afford a private education.

Great job Charlie !!!

Here's a question for anyone to answer. When Mr. Mcguire fills out financial aid applications to receive grants for the kids to go to their private, expensive schools, thus taking it away from families who cannot truly afford the higher cost tuition,---

Is Mr. Mcguire committing fraud by failing to disclose his extra "income" of $311,500.00 brought home into the household by Mrs. Mcguire? He may be the "Dumbest" spouse in America prior to her conviction, but what is his excuse now for not disclosing that little "detail" on college applications? Is that not considered fraud?

FRAUD said...

A fraudulent act is committed when a person defrauds the system to obtain services or benefits:

If a person defrauds the system of $500. or less, the offense is a class A misdemeanor; If a person defrauds the system of more than $500., the offense is a class C felony.

To Charles McGuire: said...

There are a few things I needed to clear up with you and I will do so as concisely as I can.

When your wife went under investigation, I asked you if you knew she was embezzling, and of course you told me no. Then I asked if your wife payed the mortgage with the embezzled money and you told me no. You told me the information was wrong and not true. I suppose if you were honest with me, that would only serve to disprove your first lie, which was you didn't know. You also led me to believe your wife had a paying occupation or that she earned an income. Even in your lies there is still a hint of truth. She was bringing money into the household, just not honest money. But I suppose you had to lead me to believe she earned an income because at least that would be a feasible scenario as to how the mortgage was getting paid and your claim to being the "dumbest" spouse in America. I did have one question though, during or before the time she terminated, you mentioned going to the dentist before your wife's medical benefits ran out. Did JVST offer medical benefits to board members? Again, another reason why I was led to believe your wife "earned" money.

Another issue I need to bring up; Do you remember last spring when you called me up screaming and yelling at me for approximately 45 minutes? You told me that I could be called to your wife's trial as a hostile witness. When your wife plea-bargained, don't you think you should of called me to let me know I wouldn't be called as a witness. Don't you think you owed that to me? Were you playing games, was it a scare tactic, what was it?

Getting back to your lies, you told me you didn't "spend" the money your wife embezzled. But then I found your testimonial. How does someone afford to pay a contractor for carpentry and painting when he was obsessing about how he was going to make the mortgage payments? And then to actually post a testimonial---what were you thinking! Oh wait, I know, your wife would never be arrested for the paper trail that led straight back to her. Your sense of entitlement is delusional. However, your testimonial is very telling of just "who" you really are. You knew a way to access the peak, but not 'gutsy' enough to walk the plank. What an analogy to your wife's embezzlement scheme!

In the Cabinet press, it states your wife didn't waste any time writing herself checks. I believe she took the board position solely for that purpose, and you were with her every step of the way. She didn't make a move without you. Maybe if she was on the board for a few years before embezzling, that may have served to absolve you. Unfortunately, I believe you were actively involved in your wife's embezzlement crime and would stop just short of actually concluding you may have orchestrated or masterminded her actions. I'll end the post with your own words:

(Incidentally, when I commented on the fact that I might be able to think up a way to access the peak of my house, but not 'gutsy' enough to 'walk the plank',-----

You might have been able to think up a way to access JVST's money but not 'gutsy' enough to steal it yourself. Interesting analogy, don't you think? Because who is in prison now and who still has his freedom.....

No offense to his kids, I'm inclined to believe they are the only innocent ones connected to that home.

I keep trying to get past this, my lapse of judgement in men. I want so badly to give Charlie a pass, but then I realize Charlie never opened up to me what was happening in his world. I opened up my home to this man and yet all he ever revealed to me was that his phone was being monitored because he was under investigation, no explanation, no nothing. He didn't even want me to leave him messages on his voice mail and to quote him why, "think about message retrieval and CSI." He thought if I left him messages on his voice mail he could be indicted. He NEVER was straight with me about his wife's embezzlement charges. Can you imagine, I had to read about my boyfriend's wife's felony charges in the Nashua Telegraph. I opened up my home to this man, had a relationship with him for a year, and yet he didn't trust me enough to tell me what was going on in his world. It really makes me wonder just "who" I was involved with. It's absurd, and yet I can't seem to get past it.

So here's something that happened to me that's really, really AWESOME !!! I started my martial arts classes a month ago to get my mind OFF Charlie, and now, I'm layed up on crutches. It seems the black belt I threw a kick at was having it, and now I'm at home with all the time in the world to torture myself with thoughts of Charlie. I took martial arts to forget about him.

Anyone want to come sign my cast? I have the next six weeks to get used to it.

No one cares about your affair with Charlie. Stop writing on here. All you want is attention.

Well you obviously do. She already stopped, her last post was 7 days ago --before yours.

Real Question said...

Is there an indictment in Mr. McGuire's future?

Dear Annonymous,

I think you missed the point of what you read. The point being of how deceptive Charlie is, his secretive behavior, his lies, and last but not least, his guilt in his wife's felony embezzlement crimes.

Anonymous said...

Clearly, you missed the point of what was written. Charlie is not only deceptive, but duplicitous in nature. He was paranoid about having his messages retrieved by the investigating officer who arrested his wife. Don't protect him. He is not a good person.

Anonymous said...

May I just bring up one more point to annon who claims all I want is attention. After being entangled with Charlie for a year, he could not be honest with me about his wife's criminal investigation. And you are wrong about the attention part--I'm embarassed to admit I was ever involved with Charlie.

2nd point: Charlie emphasized to me I would be called as a hostel witness at his wife's criminal trial. Now, you'd think the bastard would have taken two seconds out of his day to call or email letting me know that I wouldn't have to worry about that outcome because his wife "plea-bargained". Who does that? What kind of person is that SELFISH that he doesn't bother to call and relieve my anxiety?

I for one am all done protecting Charles Francis McGuire.

When I look back at my relationship with Charlie, I have to force myself to the face the fact that the entire relationship itself was nothing but lie after lie after lie, curtesy of Charles McGuire. Something as little as what his daughter was majoring in college...he told me she was premed---she's a math and computer science major. Lie after lie after lie after lie. That is how Charles McGuire lives his life.

Anonymous said...

So how is it that Mr. McGuire hasn't been arrested as an accomplice? Isn't accepting/recieving stolen money a crime. If you know your wife is dishonestly appropiating funds and you willingly accept and spend those funds obtained in a fraudulent manner, doesn't that make you a crimminal too. Mr. McGuire obviously knew and spent his wife's windfall on himself, his houses, his family, college tuition, etc. Why is he less guilty than Rebecca McGuire???

Dear Charlie,

I just wanted to thank you for being so cruel to me after your wife got arrested and last summer in July. I know how much you disapproved of me posting in the Nashua Telegraph almost as much as I disapproved of your lies to me. If only you were honest, I would have understood. Last July, I wanted you to save my life, and unfortunately, I think you hoped that I would end it. I'm in the process of a career change and to be honest, I'm not only earning a living, I'm thriving. Last July, I discovered I had the strength to save my own life, and even though you felt the need to be cruel to me, I'm a stronger person today.

Jasper Valley News Letter-Month of May
And with all this good news…a bit of bad news
Jasper was expecting to get our next $75,000 payment from the McGuire Family on April 15. As of this writing, that check has not come in. Serious conversations are underway to make sure that this delinquency does not go on for long. We will keep you posted on developments.

Anonymous said...

It's summer rental season on the Vineyard again...that's about $33,000 of your $75,000 payment due.

Good ol' Becky must be having problems stealing money while locked up in Goffstown. I say the Jasper Valley members storm the McGuire Mansion on the Flume and threaten Chuck-a-roo with flaming pitch forks until he hands over his old lady's stolen loot stash.

Anonymous said...

Jasper Valley can take court action to impose a lien on the Martha's Vineyard property for that $75,000. short-fall that the McGuire family owes. They can also re-instate the original lien on their primary residence on The Flume. And, if necessary, force the sale of one of the properties to satisfy the debt.

Dear J9D- It's simple-you are now successful & thriving-he needs 75K - time for Chuck renew your "friendship".

Mr. McGuire has two homes with a combined net worth of 2.2 million.
There is no excuse why he can't pay the $75,000 he owes on his own. Pull out the equity.

Anonymous said...

Greed is the salty water consumed by those who thirst for self-centered gratification. This kind of thirst can never be quenched and bedcomes the source of increasing torment.

Anonymous said...

Mr. McGuire should do the honorable thing and pay the debt, whether that means pulling equity out of the homes or selling one of the homes. He knows what the right thing is to do.

If he were a smart man, he would have taken my advice a year ago and bought that little photography studio in Canton, Ma. right on a commercially zoned street.


It would have been a fresh start baby---you should have taken my advice.

Question to the Jasper Post:

Curious to know how the McGuires end up owing a $75,000 payment, didn't they pay JVST $300,000 when the they dropped the civil suit?

Anonymous said...

I believe this was the amount in fines that the courts imposed on the McGuires to pay.

Anonymous said...

And of course they haven't payed it. Mr. McGuire should sell one of his houses, there is NO excuse why he shouldn't pay the court imposed fines demanded of him. Most people are lucky enough to call one home their own, never mind two luxury homes that most people could never have. He should get his daughter Alex to support him with her math and computer science expertise. Afterall, chances are Jasper Valley payed for her entire college education.

Charles McGuire knew all along where the stolen money was coming from. He probably masterminded the whole crime. Charles McGuire the Embezzler. He may not have written the checks but he sure spent them.

Anonymous said...

This is to the board member from Jasper Valley. Mr. McGuire doesn't have a homestead on his primary residence. You can put a lien for the $75,000 that they owe and force the sale of that property to pay the outstanding fines. Given that the fines owed are the result of a criminal act, a judge will rule in your favor.

Happy 56th Baby!

How on earth is Good Ol' Charlie keeping his TWO luxury homes with Becky locked up? Could it be that they are a two-embezzling "income" household? Has Charlie found his own cash cow to finance the flume palace? Pity he isn't bright enough to secure his biggest asset with a homestead, but then again, intelligence was never his strong suit....

Responsible father said...

Charlie's grief? The only grief he has is that he got caught.

To Anonymous:

You say they've paid and you'll never give them a reciept. What is ironic about that statement is that they have NEVER paid back the $310,000 --- Mr. McGuire's elderly mother and Becky's sister paid the debt. And there is an outstanding amount in fines of $75,000. that they have yet to pay. Maybe if they or Mr. McGuire took the measures needed to pay back the debt themselves, they might indeed receive that receipt...

I am getting tired of having to clean up this board. Please try to be respectful and keep the personal comments to yourselves.

Dear Charlie,

I just wanted to apologize to you. Live your life and take care.

JVST board member said...

On behalf of JVST, I wanted to thank the individual who posted who posted Charles McGuire's own words on how he spent the money. While Jasper Valley fell into disrepair, Mr. McGuire was investing JVST's money, raided from the maintenance fund by Mrs. McGuire, to paint and renovate his own home on the flume. Who ever was clever enough to post his OWN words let all of us know how the 'Dumbest spouse in America' spent the money.

From the board members of JVST, we thank you for your informative post.

Dear J9D,

You shouldn't have to apologize to Charlie. He doesn't deserve your empathy or your sympathy. Does he even have a soul?

Close the chapter and move on with your life.

Electrical Engineering degree? Really? Now don't get me wrong Charlie, the thought of you makes me want to vomit, but is there ANYTHING you totally haven't lied about? I have read and reread your resume posted online and by all accounts, it is obvious to see that you were NEVER an EE major, but if you were, due to your lack of intelligence, you dropped out of it real quick. Electrical Engineering is a admirable profession that any accomplished individual would proudly display on his or her resume.

How could you lie to me about your profession, especially after knowing that my father is and has been an electrical engineer for the past 40+ years???

WOW...live and learn!

Anonymous said...

A manufacturing representative is NOT an electrical engineer. Hopefully, the company he represents has an efficient theft recovery system in place. No doubt, they need it with Charles McGuire acting (or stealing) on their behalf.

Him and his wife...

Anonymous said...

To anyone who is still following this...Charles McGuire bragged to me about how his wife was stealing money from her "job" and that they became affluent because of it. He bragged to me about having his house payed off in the vineyard because his wife cashed out investments from her "job". He bragged to about being so smart that he and his wife had other people pay his mortgage. At the time I didn't know he meant it was because he and his wife was stealing it from hundreds of hard working people. He told me his wife had cashed out investments from JVST.

Way to go Charlie, nice way to teach your son how to become a "man".

Two people embezzled $311,500. but only one is in prison. One took the wrap, the other master-minded the entire crime and, so far, has gotten away with it. Charles McGuire pulled the strings of his puppet, don't doubt it for a second.

House payed off in Edgartown, Martha's Vineyard.

$50,000 tuition a year at Skidmore College, not to mention expensive equestrian trips to Colorado.

$50,000 tuition a year at Saint Vincents College in PA.

Duplicitous, Duplicitous, Duplicitous.

Charles McGuire is the Pamela Smart of this embezzlement crime.
He should be in prison right next to his wife.
