Ex-Facebook Diversity Czar Pleads Guilty To Stealing Millions

via Breakfast Club Power 105.1 FM on Youtube

Barbara Furlow-Smiles, a former diversity program manager at Facebook, has pleaded guilty to stealing over $4 million from the company by orchestrating fake business deals for kickbacks, funding a luxurious lifestyle.

She used deceit to defraud vendors and employees, linking payment accounts to credit cards given by Facebook.

Furlow-Smiles also engaged in submitting false expense reports, approving fake invoices, and misleading payments to entities not involved in kickbacks. (Trending: Dr. Fauci Says the Unthinkable About Going To Church)

She used the illicit funds for a luxury lifestyle in California and Georgia.

“Furlow-Smiles used lies and deceit to defraud both vendors and Facebook employees,” Special Agent Keri Farley stated.

“The FBI works hard to make sure greed like this doesn’t pay off and those who commit fraud are held accountable.”

“Motivated by greed, she used her time to orchestrate an elaborate criminal scheme in which fraudulent vendors paid her kickbacks in cash,” U.S. Attorney Ryan K. Buchanan said.

“She even involved relatives, friends, and other associates in her crimes, all to fund a lavish lifestyle through fraud rather than hard and honest work.”

Furlow-Smiles is scheduled to be sentenced on March 19, 2024.
