Nigerian Man Under Investigation For Allegedly Embezzling $522K From Wisconsin-Based Health Concern
A 52 year old unnamed Nigerian man from Brown Deer, Wisconsin, is under investigation for allegedly embezzling $522,479 from Milwaukee Health Services Inc., where he had been employed as an accounts payable clerk. According to authorities, the suspect wrote at least 79 fraudulent checks to phony vendors whose names were similar to legitimate ones, and ultimately deposited them into his own accounts. The scheme reportedly spanned more than 2 years from 2008 until late September 2010. The suspect has yet to be arrested and charged, but investigators are looking to present a case to the District Attorney's office in the immediate future. Read the story here.
