Paul Moe Sr., 66, of Atlantic Highlands, was arrested and charged with several counts of Wire Fraud. The first count is conspiracy to commit wire fraud, coupled with 13 counts of wire fraud, the number thirteen coincides with the number of weeks he fraudulently collected wages for.
He worked as the general foreman for a Port Elizabeth Operator and is a member of the International Longshoremen’s Association. At the port he collected an annual salary of around $500,000. Beginning in September of 2015, ending in March 2017, Moe worked with others to falsify his work schedule. Billing for regular hours and overtime, he collected over $9,000 a week, while sometimes working only eight hours, the entire week.
Moe allegedly spend a lot of time on his yacht, out of state, or even out of the country in Aruba, instead of at work. The salary fraud charge led to his arrest but he has since been released on an unsecured bond and will be arraigned later on.
If convicted, each charge could cost him up to a $250,000 fine and up to five years in prison.
All persons are assumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
