NLR woman pleads guilty in million-dollar payroll fraud

Posted By on Tue, Aug 19, 2014 at 6:37 PM

The U.S. attorney's office announced today that Regina Paff, 53, of North Little Rock, had pleaded guilty to wire fraud in a scheme to defraud her former employer, AGL Corporation in Jacksonville of about $1 million in bogus payroll and expense checks.

Paff, who prepared payroll, paid herself through additional paychecks and reimbursement checks to which she was not entitled, the government said. From October 2008 to September 2012, Paff received $991,640 she was not entitled to received and caused a total intended loss of $1.1 million. Sentencing will come later.
