When you talk with Prosperident’s Scott Clfford for even a few minutes his ability to out think embezzlers shines through clearly. As a Supervising Examiner, Scott handles some of Prosperident’s most challenging cases.
One of Scott’s recently completed cases resulted in this woman, Danielle Powers, being arrested for embezzlement. She is charged with four counts of theft over $5,000. Her bail was set at $250,000.
Here is Danielle’s arrest report:
A search of Nevada court records reveals that a Danielle Powers was charged in 2013 for forgery, fraud and embezzlement, as well as 2004 charges for burglary and fraud, and 2003 charges for burglary and drug possession.
Dentists should be on the lookout for a serial embezzler named Nancy PRUETT (has also gone by Nancy Richey and Nancy Castillo). Her date of birth is reported to be 5/12/1967.
Nancy has been convicted of one embezzlement, and we have received reports from several other doctors claiming that she stole from them as well. Here are a couple of pictures of our fired Nancy, and a copy of her Texas criminal conviction is below. Reportedly she uses online dental job boards to find jobs in dental offices, and as of May 2018 she is reported to be looking for work.

We received a report that Unique victimized a Las Vegas dental office using the name Denise Leblanc, and she has been applying to other Las Vegas offices using that name.
We have several reports of Unique seeking work in the Phoenix AZ area. She is reported to be using the surname Edmond or Edmonds. Some other aliases that we have encountered are Unique McKinness and Unique Tooks-Wells
It appears that our friend Unique is still looking for work in dental practices in the Las Vegas area. She may now be using the name Unique Edmond.
