Fake invoices, missed signals from Crundwell
New details of former comptroller’s schemes revealed in lawsuit against auditors
DIXON – An amended lawsuit filed late last month against three auditing firms reveals new details of the schemes that former Dixon Comptroller Rita Crundwell used to steal nearly $54 million in city funds since the 1990s.
One of those schemes was to write nearly 200 fake invoices between 2002 and 2012 – to the tune of $44 million – that Crundwell claimed were from a state agency for capital improvement projects, according to court documents.
The invoices lacked key information, such as the agency’s emblem or logo and a contact name and number of an employee who could be reached for questions.
