Stealing from your employer and diverting funds into your own or even other accounts can leave you facing serious criminal penalties in California.

A former San Jose man was indicted by a grand jury in November 2018 on charges he was part of a $9.3 million embezzlement scheme while working for car manufacturer Tesla’s Global Supply Management group. The Silicon Valley Business Journal reports that the 32-year-old man joined Tesla in 2013 as a purchasing specialist, rising to the level of group manager of the Global Supply Management and Industrialization team in 2017. He is accused of hatching a plan over the course of 2016 and 2017 to divert funds owed by a Taiwan-based auto parts supplier to a different company located in Germany. 

The man impersonated employees to direct funds from Hota Industrial Manufacturing Co., Ltd.
