Two ex-employees of Texas-based carrier, MH Group, Dina Maldonado Morales and Laura Ballesteros Haby, were recently indicted by a federal grand jury, charged with wire fraud for allegedly siphoning about $1.4 million from the company into their personal accounts between July 2017 and April 2019. Hired as the dispatcher and operations supervisor, and payroll and accounts receivable manager respectively, the pair reportedly misused their roles to execute the fraud, even going as far as Morales falsifying checks and claiming ownership of MH Group. They both face up to 40 years in prison if convicted for conspiracy and the three counts of wire fraud.
