Some originally well intentioned people are falling like flies to greed if these Fraud Blog stories are any indication. The first one is someone who served as a director for 35 years for the Pennsylvania Rape Center.
Mary Beth Semerod, 55, of Pottsville, Pennsylvania, was indicted on charges she embezzled some $100,000 from the Schuylkill County Rape and Victim Assistance Center where she had served as executive director. According to the indictment, Semerod misappropriated the funds over a 2 year period from June 2006 until June 2008. The center has since been closed down and Semerod resigned in August 2008 after failing to comply with audit requirements, after serving as its director of 35 years.
Amy McKinley Moore, 43, of Garner, North Carolina has been charged with larceny by employee in excess of $100,000 and obtaining money by false pretenses in connection with an alleged embezzlement of some $394,000 from Garner Volunteer Fire-Rescue, Inc. (GVFR), where she had been employed as an administrative assistant. According to authorities, Moore wrote hundreds of checks to herself over a 7 year period between 2003 and 2010. Moore's husband, David Moore, is a detective with the Raleigh Police Department. (Note this lady looks like a crack addict)
I must say, it's so sad to see so many women involved in this activity. At one time I held women to higher standards above men when it came to not accepting they were capable of this kind of stuff on a large scale. Apparently, I was wrong. These women ruin it for the rest of us hard working females. The author of this material believes we'll be seeing much more of this kind of thing as the economy worsens.
