Say it isn’t so! The maker of my all-time favorite ice cream suffers a fraud at the hands of its CFO?
The ex-CFO of Ben & Jerry’s Homemade Inc., Stuart “Mickey” Wiles pleaded guilty to wire fraud for embezzling $300,000 from the company. He had company checks issued for things such as charitable contributions and professional fees, but actually used the money for personal expenses such as entertainment, vacations, and an addition to his home.
Wiles also used his company credit card for personal expenses. He resigned in May 2004.
