I wonder what took them so long to file charges, since this investigation goes back to 2016. How someone could run up $226,000 in Sam's Club charges over 7 years without arousing suspicion is mind-boggling. Where was the house corp board oversight? Yikes.

Not that anything of this magnitude happened but several years ago our Council mandated all our house corporations use our Fraternity Housing Corporation for all accounting functions. While we were in the midst of that decision we had one where the HCP had done some things that weren't supported by documentation and had failed to do some things in a timely way with governmental groups causing fines that led to me suggesting to the new HC Board that they present her with a bill and follow thru with legal action if she didn't make payment arrangements. They decided not to pursue that in any way and she skated. But it wasn't anywhere near this amount.

She was creating false invoices/ statements from Sam's. They didn't catch on for a few years that the invoices were fake. She went to a LOT of work to scam the chapter.

I read the article before posting and I just find it amazing that the undergrad officers are the ones who got suspicious...I just can't imagine giving an house director a credit card and having the statements go to her (which allowed her the opportunity to present forged ones instead). There was no checks and balances in place to prevent this situation and this is just the kind of situation that has caused MJ Insurance to crack down on house corp financial practices.

wow

I read somewhere that women are more likely to embezzle than men. I hope insurance pays out and restores that chapter's financial health

My bookkeeper was embezzling, and he was a man. He was of Hindu culture from India, and seemed to assume "ownership entitlement syndrome" or something. At least it was a small fraction of that Tri-Delta crime.
