PINELLAS COUNTY, Fla. – This is what you call a “die-hard” fan, but she went about it the completely wrong way.
Detectives assigned to the Economic Crimes Unit have arrested 46-year-old Jamie Fonville for three counts of Scheme to Defraud.
Fonville was employed with First Choice Association Management as the accounting manager, where she was responsible for managing the bank accounts and issuing checks on behalf of the association for fifty-eight different homeowner associations.
Detectives were made aware of possible fraudulent activity in February of 2022 from an account overseen by First Choice Association Management.
Through the course of the investigation, detectives learned Fonville manufactured fraudulent checks using the account information from three different homeowner associations and then deposited the checks into her own personal bank account.
Detectives say Fonville used the money for personal expenditures such as food, groceries, daily living expenses, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers game tickets.
Fonville also paid her personal credit card bills with the money.
According to Detectives the total financial loss amongst all reported victims is estimated to be $228,300.83.
