Fired drug company executive and his escort-turned-girlfriend are indicted for wire fraud after ‘spending $5.8million on company credit cards to fund their lavish lifestyle’

A former drug company executive and his escort-turned-girlfriend have been indicted on six counts of wire fraud after allegedly stealing $5.8million to fund their lavish lifestyle.

Scott Kennedy, 43, and Crystal Lundberg, 31, were indicted by a federal grand jury in Chicago on Wednesday. 

The ex-Nemera executive and the former escort were under investigation by the FBI for fraud and money laundering over the alleged spending spree with the drug company’s credit card. 

Authorities say Kennedy gave Lundberg access to the credit card in 2015 because she said she needed help buying Christmas presents for her daughters. 

The pair had allegedly racked up nearly $5.8 million in charges 16 months later. 

Scott Kennedy, 43, and Crystal Lundberg, 31, were indicted by a federal grand jury in Chicago on Wednesday 

Court filings obtained by the Chicago Tribune earlier this month allege they spent millions on plastic surgery, a San Diego mansion, a chauffeur for her children, dogs and even potted plants. 

The 12-page indictment against the pair also alleges that Kennedy falsified company records to make it appear as if their purchases were business related. 

Each fraud count against Kennedy and Lundberg comes with a maximum 20-year prison sentence.   

Kennedy told the FBI that he first met Lundberg in 2012 through the classified ad website Backpage.com, which advertises sexual services.

Lundberg was working as a professional escort at the time and agents say Kennedy solicited her services between eight and 10 times from 2012 to 2015.

By May 2015, Lundberg began seeking financial assistance from Kennedy. Soon afterwards, she, her two young children and their pets moved in with Kennedy at his suburban home. 

That November, Kennedy gave Lundberg access to the company credit card for the first time, according to the filing. Over the next 16 months, the two burned through $5.79million of company cash, authorities alleged.

Lundberg moved to a 7,000-square-foot-mansion on Polvera Avenue in San Diego where the company footed the $12,000-a-month rent at the mansion

Analysis conducted by Nemera found more than 8,800 improper charges to the company credit card between November 2015 and mid-March 2017. 

This included money to front Lundberg’s own spa known as K&K Cosmetics, plastic surgery during a stay in Miami, two Rolex watches, a personal driver for her daughters, a maid, two purebred dogs and trips to numerous locations including Bali, Hawaii, France and Costa Rica.

Almost $1million was spent on travel alone.

Lundberg moved to a 7,000-square-foot-mansion on Polvera Avenue in San Diego where the company footed the $12,000-a-month rent at the mansion. In addition, $24,000 was spent for movers to haul the woman’s potted plants from Illinois.

The company also unknowingly gave $585,000 for Lundberg to spend time at a medical spa called the Royalty Room.

Kennedy told the Chicago Tribune he let Lundberg dupe him into spending the millions because he wanted to be loved and had hoped it would lead to a family.

‘I wanted to be loved and cared for. My heart kind of overrid my head and said, ‘Take a chance’,’ he said.

‘Well, it blew up in my face. My mistake was trusting her. At this point, I have very little faith anything she told me ever was true.’

Lundberg’s lawyer Marc Carlos hit out last week claiming Kennedy was responsible for the entire operation and said the former escort was not a ‘financial genius’.

In November 2015 , Kennedy allegedly gave Lundberg (pictured) access to the company credit card for the first time after she asked for help buying Christmas gifts for her daughters

Prosecutors filed a warrant to seize Lundberg’s business checking account and FBI agents raided her San Diego mansion (above) in May

Nemera said it became aware of possible improper financial activity by Kennedy earlier this year. After a review, by an independent accounting firm and outside counsel, Kennedy was fired in March.

That is when the FBI confronted Kennedy. 

While he largely blamed Lundberg for the spending, he admitted to buying gift cards with the company card to pay for day-to-day expenses after Lundberg had allegedly maxed out his personal credit cards.

He told the agency that Lundberg had led him to believe she would eventually reimburse him as she claimed she was adopted by a wealthy family as a child and, at age 30, she would be able to access $4million. 

But Lundberg, who filed for bankruptcy in 2009, reported to only about $100 in a checking account and income of about $200 a month with no mention of a trust fund. 

Kennedy agreed to cooperate with authorities, including making undercover recordings of face-to-face and telephone conversations, according to the court filing.

In May, prosecutors filed a warrant to seize Lundberg’s business checking account and FBI agents raided her San Diego mansion.
