Norfolk woman set up her own debt-collection firm to help steal $300,000 from her employer
A Norfolk woman pleaded guilty Tuesday to stealing more than $300,000 from the women’s clinic in Suffolk where she worked, according to prosecutors. . . .
Prosecutors said Gregory made $250,000 in unauthorized purchases, including concert and airline tickets, car rentals and vehicle repairs. She also received cash advances. . . .
In 2015, Gregory started a debt collection company to which she referred debts owed by some of the clinic’s patients – again without her bosses’ knowledge.
According to prosecutors, Gregory and her son ran the company, collecting nearly $50,000 owed to the clinic.
But Gregory did not use that money to satisfy the patients’ debts. Instead, she deposited it into her personal accounts, then wiped the debt off the clinic’s books.
