Oshawa woman accused of skimming $2m from a Scarborough company she worked for

Durham Regional Police says the alleged fraud happened in only 19 months...

An Oshawa woman has found herself behind bars, after allegedly nearly bankrupting a Scarborough company she worked for.

She was the Chief Financial Officer for a private company between February of 2012, and September of 2013, where police believe she skimmed more than 2 million dollars from the company's bottom line.

Durham Regional Police say the woman allegedly redirected money to a supplier whom she had ties with. Once dismissed on an unrelated matter, the company discovered the missing money.

43 year old Leano Lailani has been charged with fraud over 5 thousand dollars, utter a forged document, fraudulent concealment and falsification of books and records.
