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.
It looks like Nancy has been convicted of several embezzlements, and as of the date of writing (June 2020) she is serving a prison sentence in Texas with an expected release date of January 2022.
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 extensive Texas criminal convictions is below. Reportedly she uses online dental job boards to find jobs in dental offices, and has been reported to be ignoring parole conditions that were intended to keep her from working in dental practices.
