Greeneville police are investigating instances of alleged embezzlement by a former employee of H&R Block.
A Limestone man reported Monday that an ex-employee of the tax preparation service “had fraudulently taken out a loan in his name,” Officer Eric Scott said in a report.
After the suspect took out the loan, she called the victim and told him she had taken out a $500 loan, “but not to worry about it because she was going to take care of it,” the report said.
When the victim went to have his taxes done several months later, he “was told there was an outstanding loan that needed to be taken care of,” the report said.
When the victim told H&R Block that he didn’t take out the loan, company employees accompanied him to the Greeneville Police Department to file a report.
A current employee told police the suspect “had also taken out fraudulent loans in the names of at least four other people which had not yet been reported.”
A suspect is named in the report.
