Where did the $1.1 M go?: The story behind the crime

Stealing $1.1 million should be harder than this.

A recent article on the Worcester (MA) Telegram and Gazette website described an alleged embezzlement scheme that had been ongoing since 2011. Through the use of electronic transfers to an account set-up in an unsuspecting business associate’s name and secret personal accounts, the alleged perpetrator embezzled over a million dollars.
