Now Here's How To Cook The Books!

A Farmingville, New York woman allegedly stole more than $2.3 million from her employer between June 2002 and November 2005 to buy lottery tickets. Annie Donnelly, who was employed as a doctors office bookkeeper, would write company checks for cash, petty cash, or checks payable to herself and falsely list them as payments to vendors associated with the medical office in order to purchase as much as $6,000 worth of lottery tickets a day ... imagine getting stuck in line behind her! The local Assistant District Attorney had this to day; "She obviously had a gambling problem, she appeared to be caught up in the high of winning." ... although I personally would beg to differ about the whole "winning" thing. Upon reading this story, I've learned two life lessons; 1) This is proof positive that no matter how much money you spend on lottery tickets, you'll never hit it big. 2) I should have went to Med school, because what's more amazing to me than the fact she blew this enormous amount of cash on Powerball and scratch off tickets is that nobody noticed such a substantial sum of money went missing ... man, I'm in the wrong business!
