Pennsylvania Woman Charged With Embezzling $1.5 Million

Pamela Ann Mills, 45, of Reading, Pennsylvania, was indicted Friday on charges she embezzled some $1.5 million from Synergy Software, Maxwell Resources, Inc., where she had been employed as a bookkeeper and account manager. According to authorities, Mills wrote a series of checks to herself and her husband over a period of 8 years from July 2000 until July 2008. Specifically, Mills was indicted on 18 counts of mail fraud, two counts of wire fraud, and three counts of filing false federal income tax returns for the years 2006, 2007, and 2008. Authorities believe Mills spent much of the ill-gotten gains to support a lavish lifestyle. She had been employee of the company since 1993.
