In a scheme between 2017 and 2022, Angela Fae Brown, a former accountant for Viking Pavers in California, allegedly embezzled over $800,000 from the company. Prosecutors have charged her with embezzlement, money laundering, identity theft, and tax evasion. The scheme involved Brown pretending to be the owner of the company and creating a fake account with a payment processing service linked to her personal bank account.
