Roommates Accused of Using $285K Forged Check For Shopping Spree

A California paralegal and her elementary school teacher roommate are accused of stealing and forging a check for more than $285,000 that they then allegedly used on a cross-country flight on a private jet, multiple hotel rooms and a shopping spree at Tiffany & Co. and Montblanc.

“We see a lot of high dollar fraud cases where the defendant spends money on luxury items like homes and cars,” Orange County District Attorney’s Office spokeswoman Farrah Emami said. “This case is quite unusual because they rented a private jet to New York City.”
