Georgia Nursing Home Administrator Accused Of Embezzling More Than $500K

Mary O. Burroughs, 66, of Savannah, Georgia has been charged with embezzling as much as $500,000 from the Riverview Nursing & Rehabilitation Center where she had been employed as an administrator. Authorities allege that Burroughs used her position to embezzle at least $235,000 over a period of one year, from May 1, 2009, and April 30, 2010, and believe the losses could exceed half a million dollars. Burroughs, who was charged earlier this month with money laundering, credit card theft and identity theft, has pleaded not guilty. She is believed to have used company credit cards for personal expenses, issued checks made payable to companies controlled by relatives and stole property.

Due to fraudulent services that take place in investment market, many a people are reluctant in going for investments plan. Doing low risk investments with the help of a financial adviser will show you the right track of investment.
