Toni Ann Branca, 42, was a loyal customer at Victoria’s Secret, but the problem was that she was far less loyal to her employer, Apple. Branca is accused of buying considerable amounts of merchandize from the lingerie business as part of a $243,000 embezzlement scheme. This proved the one secret that she could not take after the charges on a company credit card were detected by Apple.
It was her appetite that was even more impressive than her recklessness. She worked as an Administrative Assistant and it was not until the company spotted the rather incongruous Victoria Secret purchases that they realized that something was obviously wrong. This is not normally the type of purchase found on an Apple American Express.
She would submit multiple requests for reimbursement and charged up $110,000 in retail spending. She reportedly paid back $95,000 prior to her sentencing.
