By RP, September 1, 2018

Anna McCann, a former bookkeeper for the poker publications company Card Player, has been charged before a Las Vegas Clark County court with 24 felony offences regarding her criminal activities at the company.

McCann stands accused of defrauding magazine owners Barry and Allyn Shulman of $1.4 million over a five-year period ending August 2016, during which she is alleged to have used company cheques made out to herself to pay off credit cards, increase her salary, and for other expenses.

The fraudulent transactions were discovered after she resigned from the company and moved to Hawaii in August 2016, according to court filings, which show that McCann spent the stolen funds on paying off credit card debt, gifts to her husband, airline tickets, shopping and giving herself pay increases.

The case continues.
