NYC jewelry company employee Julie Vos charged with stealing $2.8 million

A former accountant at New York jewelry firm Julie Vos was charged Monday with stealing more than $2.8 million from his employer to pay for travel, luxury cars, jewelry and clothing.

Francisco Lopez, 36, made thousands of wire transfers from the company accounts to his personal bank account and credit cards between September 2014 and April 2021, Manhattan prosecutors allege.

The Bayside, Queens resident allegedly masked the transactions as business expenses – and then used the funds to live big, buy luxuries and vacation.

The scheme was uncovered last month after American Express asked Julie Vos about numerous payments made from the jeweler’s accounts to cover fees for Lopez’s personal AmEx, according to prosecutors.

Lopez pleaded not guilty to grand larceny and criminal possession of stolen property in the Manhattan Supreme Court on Monday. His bail was set at $500,000 in cash.

“Francisco Lopez is accused of using his insider access to steal nearly $3 million from a New York City-based company over seven years,” District Attorney Alvin Bragg said in a statement.

Lopez allegedly made thousands of wire transfers from corporate accounts to his personal bank account from September 2014 to April 2021.

“I thank the talented investigators and prosecutors in my office who tracked the money and uncovered thousands of fraudulent transfers to secure these indictments.”

Lopez’s attorney did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
