From Lincoln Journal Star, “A Lincoln-based telecommunications consulting business has accused its former office manager of embezzling more than $100,000 over nine years.
Based on statements Ackerman made to police, VHC officials believe the company’s loss might exceed $400,000, the company’s attorney, Adam Prochaska, said in court documents.
Ackerman’s responsibilities included collecting and managing company funds, bookkeeping and payroll, purchasing and overseeing the financial day-to-day operations, the lawsuit said.
Prochaska alleges the theft began in January 2008 and continued until this month.
“In various transactions over the course of several years, Defendant purchased personal goods with VHC funds, improperly used VHC funds for personal reasons, transferred VHC funds into personal bank accounts, and took and misappropriated assets and funds of VHC,” Prochaska said in the lawsuit.”
