Sisters indicted for alleged title agency scam December 30, 2009

This is an interesting case. A Monmouth County grand jury returned a seven-count indictment on Monday against Rebecca Marchese-DePeri-Grande of Jackson, and her sister, Meredith Miller of Brick Township.  They were co-owners of Spectrum Title Agency in Freehold and Marchese-DePeri-Grande owned R.M.J title Agency in Freehold where Miller was an employee.   

It is alleged that between 2002 and 2005 the sisters stole $786,153 and spent the money on things such as luxury vehicles and vacations.  Law enforcement became aware of the situation when clients complained their creditors were demanding payments that should have been made by the title agencies. 

The sisters were charged with conspiracy, misapplication of entrusted property, theft by failure to make required disposition of property received and misconduct by a corporate official. Miller is also charged with two counts of bad checks and one count of theft by deception.

The state Department of Banking and Insurance is pursuing a separate investigation so you have to wonder if they had some advance notice that they were being investigated.  My guess is that they did.  Hopefully they had good attorneys that prepared them for all of this.

Story is here.
