Employee Of Top-Ten American Nonprofit Caught In Major Theft

via FOX 8 News Cleveland

Richard Alan Abrusci, a former regional CEO of Goodwill, has been charged with stealing $1.4 million from the nonprofit by funneling money to a fictitious subsidiary he controlled.

He faces nine counts of wire fraud, one count of aggravated identity theft, and three counts of monetary transactions with proceeds of specified unlawful activity.

Abrusci allegedly used false documents, including invoices and purchase orders, to cause fraudulent payments into the fictitious subsidiary’s bank account.

“From 2016 through 2021, Abrusci fraudulently caused the non-profit organization and one of its subsidiaries to pay approximately $1.4 million to Resolution Arrangement Services (RAS),” the release noted.

“RAS consisted of nothing more than a fictitious business name that Abrusci registered in 2008 and a bank account that he opened the same year,” it added.

“Abrusci caused the fraudulent payments into the RAS bank account that he controlled by using various false documents, including invoices and purchase orders.”

If convicted, he could face up to 32 years in prison and millions of dollars in fines.

“In one instance, Abrusci used a forged letter purporting to be from an attorney representing the non-profit organization to convince the organization’s CFO to pay RAS $55,000 under false pretenses related to a lawsuit,” KCRA-TV in Sacramento wrote.

“The payments to RAS were supposedly for information-technology services, helping to facilitate settlement of a lawsuit, and assisting the non-profit organization in running call centers for the State of California during the COVID-19 pandemic,” it said.

“In fact, RAS provided none of the services for which it billed the non-profit organization and its subsidiary.”

Goodwill has urged federal prosecutors to pursue the case to the fullest extent of the law.

“Goodwill itself as an organization is based upon good will and this was a real breaking of the good will by this CEO,” Goodwill spokesman Sam Singer stated.

“The allegations against him are serious,” he added.

“We urged the federal prosecutors to pursue him to the fullest extent of the law.”
