NYC Transit Supervisor Suspected Of Fraud

During these tough economic times, stories such as this do not sit well with people. The story I am referring to is of the alleged billing & kickback scheme involving a NYC Transit supervisor named Jacqueline Jackson Cutler & AJI Records Retrieval. The scheme allegedly revolved around Jacqueline inflating the bills submitted by AJI Records Retrieval & sharing in the difference. Pete Donohue of the New York Daily News has more in this report:

An NYC Transit supervisor allegedly “living large” with luxury cars and five flat-screen televisions in her house is suspected of looting the cash-strapped agency with a bogus billing and kickback scheme, the Daily News has learned.

The MTA inspector general and the Brooklyn district attorney’s office are investigating whether Jacqueline Jackson, 50, inflated bills submitted by a Brooklyn company and then shared in the ill-gotten gains, law enforcement sources said.

The scope of the suspected fraud isn’t yet known but the early signs are alarming, sources said.

NYC Transit is believed to have used the company, AJI Records Retrieval, to do pre-trial tasks for at least a decade, paying the firm about $1.5 million, sources said.

NYC Transit yesterday suspended Jackson, NYC Transit spokesman Paul Fleuranges said, hours after authorities executed several search warrants in connection with the burgeoning probe.

Jackson earned $83,000 a year as director of legal support for the tort division in NYC Transit’s legal department.

The very next day, Pete reported about how authorities were investigating a tip received which accused Jacqueline of shredding documents just days before her home was searched. He has more in this report:

Authorities are investigating a tip that a transit manager suspected of fraud shredded documents days before detectives raided her home, the Daily News has learned.

The News reported Wednesday that the MTA inspector general and Brooklyn district attorney’s office carried out court-authorized searches of Jacqueline Jackson’s Brooklyn home and sealed her NYC Transit office Tuesday morning.

After the raids, investigators received a tip alleging a large number of documents from Jackson’s office were shredded last week at Jackson’s direction, a law enforcement source said.

The source said investigators were seeking to confirm the documents’ destruction, identify their content and determine their relevance – if any – to the probe.

This kind of behavior is absolutely disgusting & punishment must be swift & fierce if these allegations are true. The fact that she was having documents shredded just days before her house was searched does not look good for her prospects of being innocent. I know that you are innocent until proven guilty but it is hard to ignore such an occurrence.
