State Auditor reveals huge embezzlement conspiracy

State Auditor Shad White joined The Gallo Radio Show on SuperTalk Mississippi to talk about a huge embezzlement conspiracy that will be announced later Monday.

White said multiple people were in on the scam that used government procurement cards to buy gift cards and other items that were then given to family and friends.

The conspiracy had been going on for years, and the auditor’s office went through hundreds of pages of documents to “follow the money”. White breaks down how the scam worked, and how they got caught.

UPDATE: Our partners at News Mississippi have learned it involves several individuals from Coahoma Community College in Clarksdale. The entire story is here.
