I just read this in the local paper. -- Local man and woman buy succesfull lawn company. Then hire neigbor to keep the books, they said quote "friendliest new neighbor you had ever met", no background check done. They considered this woman a friend. Well come to find out she has embezzled $99,133 from them in little over a years time. $99,133 WOW. IF they had done a back ground check they would have found out she convicted of stealing $24,000 from lowes. Since she wasnt paying the taxes or workmans comp insurance it will take them 8 years to pay back just the back taxes and interest . They will have to gross a extra $708,000 to net what she took from it. Here is address to the whole story www.sj-r.com/sections/news/stories/27581.asp This is a company that I always thought to my self wow I want to be like that. The old owner is a rep for exmark now.
