For the third time in a week, a New Yorker has been accused of illegally pocketing megabucks from a non-profit.
The Manhattan District Attorney says that Jeffrey Bernstein swindled more than $2,500,000 from the Albert Ellis Institute, a psychotherapy charity, between January 2010 and February 2011.
Bernstein, 62, worked as director of administration at the org, which offered affordable therapy to the public.
The D.A. indicted Bernstein today, claiming that he conned the group out of money by sending some 80 unauthorized wire transfers to his own business accounts.
