A second man has pleaded guilty in a scheme to steal nearly $2 million from the Argyle Country Club in Silver Spring, Md., where he worked as the club’s Accountant and Financial Manager.
According to The Washington Post, Akinyeme Bamisaiye recently pleaded guilty to mail fraud and money laundering. Meanwhile, the club’s former General Manager, Sajjad Mahar, pleaded guilty to his role in the scheme earlier this month.
Prosecutors say the pair created fake employees, kept former workers on the payroll, and put others on the payroll who provided them with personal services. Paychecks for these “ghost employees” went to Mahar’s and Bamisaiye’s personal accounts, reports the Post.
Both men are scheduled to be sentenced in Federal court on October 19.
