Wife embezzles from husband; employee dishonesty insurance will not cover because she wasn’t an employee

The insured in Chancey v. Cincinnati Insurance Co. was a dentist who had “married the wrong woman.”

Dr. Chancey’s wife managed his dental office, but in the course of running that office, she ran up over $300,000 of credit-card debt and stole over $25,000 from his dental practice. The two divorced, and Dr. Chancey later sought coverage for his wife’s misdeeds under a bond that covered loss resulting from employee dishonesty.

The insurer denied coverage because his wife was not an “employee.” A federal district court in Alabama agreed with the insurer. The bond defined employee as a “natural person [w]hom you compensate directly by salary, sages or commissions,” but the record was clear that the wife had never received a salary, wages, or commissions for her work at the dental practice. The court entered summary judgment in favor of the insurer.

Office manager pleads guilty to stealing more than $580,000 from Birmingham surgical practice

Editor’s note — as you may know, we normally confine ourselves to investigating dental office embezzlement.  However, we do provide reporting on significant embezzlements in medical offices because the methodologies employed have considerable commonality.


The medical office manager federally indicted for stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars from her employer pleaded guilty on Tuesday.

Anntwine Moss, 49, of Bessemer pleaded guilty to charges that she stole at least $580,000 from Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery of Alabama, reports U.S. Attorney Joyce White Vance. She entered her plea before U.S. District Judge Karon O. Bowdre to five counts of wire fraud and four counts of tax evasion for stealing from the Birmingham surgical practice between 2006 and 2013.

Sentencing is scheduled June 9.

According to the indictment and Moss’ plea agreement with the government, she executed a scheme to defraud the surgical practice by using her authority as office manager to write unauthorized checks to herself, make unauthorized direct deposits into her account, and use the company’s credit cards for unauthorized personal purchases. As office manager, Moss had authority over several key functions, including payroll, accounting, bookkeeping and managing the office’s budget.

She admitted to falsifying her personal tax returns for several years by not reporting the stolen money amounts to the IRS.

The maximum penalty for each wire fraud count is 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. Each tax evasion count carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison and a $100,000 fine.

The FBI and IRS investigated the case. Assistant U.S. Attorney Xavier O. Carter Sr. is prosecuting.
