Swift office worker gets 5 years in prison for swindling $1.65M from company

An IT worker at carrier giant Swift, has been sentenced to 57 months in prison and ordered to pay $2.2 million after he pleaded guilty to embezzlement charges early this year.

Reynolds, 30, pleaded guilty to bilking the carrier out of $1.65 million over a three-year period via multiple schemes.

Prosecutors say that, between 2013 and 2016, Reynolds used a Swift corporate credit card to make personal purchases, including items like cell phones, TVs, furniture, computers and gun accessories, amounting to $865,000 over the three year span. He created fake invoices for the purchases to disguise them as company purchases.
