A Westborough woman has been indicted for allegedly embezzling more than $220,000 from her former employer in a ghost employee scam, state and local prosecutors said.
Eda Vivar, 44, was indicted on larceny charges Friday, according to the office of State Attorney General Martha Coakley.
The indictment alleges that Vivar, while employed as a Human Resource Payroll and Benefits Administrator at Cavicchio Greenhouse, Inc., of Sudbury, defrauded the company's payroll system by siphoning the salaries of two non-existent two employees into her personal bank accounts. As a result of this scheme, Vivar allegedly stole funds totaling $220,615.25, the indictment alleges.
The alleged fraud was initially detected by an in-house audit conducted by Cavicchio Greenhouse, Inc. in June 2005, prosecutors said. An arraignment date has not yet been scheduled.
