More Dental Embezzlements

 

Insurance Checks Ended Up at the Receptionist’s Favorite Department Store

I’ve been amazed by some of the stories of embezzlements I’ve heard lately. This story comes from a Texas dentist whose receptionist was doing more than just opening mail. Do people who do this sort of thing really think they won’t get caught?

Dentist’s Insurance Checks Pay Receptionist’s Shopping Bills

“We had a receptionist who was taking some of the checks were sent to us from insurance companies (payable to our office). She was signing the back of the checks herself and using the money to pay her various debts — as if we weren’t going to see the canceled checks with her signature on the back paying her favorite department store bill! In Texas stealing mail is a federal crime… I wanted to throw her in jail, but my wife agreed to let her pay us back in installments.

“The worst part was that she apparently had done this at previous doctors’ offices, including one I knew. He told me later that they were investigating her on similar charges, but his attorney told him he could not discuss it with anyone while they were building a case against her. Thanks a lot for the heads up when we called for a reference!
