Delaware office manager pleads guilty to mail fraud; agrees to $1 million restitution

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.

WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) – The former office manager of a medical practice in Dover has pleaded guilty to federal mail fraud charges.

According to a court filing Tuesday, a federal judge in Wilmington scheduled the sentencing of Pamela Poore for March 3.

Poore, who worked at Internal Medicine of Dover, waived indictment last week and pleaded guilty to a single count of mail fraud, which carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison.

Authorities say Poore, who was responsible for day-to-day accounting tasks and making cash deposits, misappropriated the medical firm’s funds for her own use by writing unauthorized checks and failing to make cash deposits. As part of the plea agreement, she must pay more than $1 million in restitution.
