WALDEN, N.Y. – A Walden woman admitted to stealing nearly $1.5 million from the three New York City doctors she worked for on Thursday, according to Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance.
Jacqueline Camaro, 59, spent nearly a decade depositing approximately 900 checks totaling $1.4 million from patients into her personal accounts. Camaro also processed unauthorized credits totaling approximately $55,000 from the business to her various personal credit card and bank accounts, the District Attorney said.
Following the death of the defendant’s former employer in late 2015, the doctor’s estate discovered the unauthorized credits to the defendant’s personal cards and she was terminated.
Shortly following her termination, Camaro began working for a cardiologist on the Upper East Side and an oncologist in Midtown. From May to September 2016, Camaro stole $4,700 from the cardiologist by depositing 11 checks from patients to the doctor into her personal accounts, the district attorney said.
Camaro pent the stolen money on things like concert and theater tickets, trips to Florida and Atlantic City, and a Porsche Boxster.
Camaro pleaded guilty in New York State Supreme Court to first and third-degree grand larceny and criminal tax fraud. She will be sentenced on Nov. 16.
Vance thanked the Tarrytown Police Department and the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance, specifically Associate Attorney Michelle Demeri, Tax Auditor II Nataliya Sydorchuk, and Tax Auditor III Nicholas Capkovic.
