Shelton Travel Agent Sentenced in $94,000 Embezzlement Scheme

Bridgeport woman sentenced Monday in three-part accounting scheme.

A Bridgeport woman was sentenced Monday to 9 months in prison and 3 years of supervised release for embezzling over $94,000 from a Shelton travel agency.

While working as a corporate travel consultant, office manager and accounting assistant in Shelton from 2008 to 2011, Christina Tartaglio, 34, wrote fraudulent refund checks from the agency to customers, forged signatures and deposited the funds in her personal account.

Tartaglio also siphoned all or part of agency commissions into her personal account and created checks to vendors or clients, changed the payee to a fictitious name and deposited the checks.

She pleaded ‘guilty’ to one count of wire fraud in June and was ordered to pay full restitution of $94,237.05.

After her prison term, Tartaglio will also be under electronic home confinement for the first 6 months of her supervised release.
