Scott Kennedy was so desperate to find love that he made the decision to use his job’s company credit card to rack up a $5.8 million bill. Oh what? On his escort and making sure she lived a lavish life.
The 43-year-old, who was a CEO for the drug company Nemara, was let go a few months ago after it was discovered that he was using company money on his Backpage.com escort, 31-year-old Crystal Lundberg. Kennedy solicited services from eight to 10 times between 2012 and 2015. And he must have fallen head over heels because he ended up buying Lundberg a mansion and a hell of a lot more.
Like what? Well, trips, $600,000 worth of new clothes, as well as surgery for Lundberg and a personal driver for her kids. But wait, there’s more! Kenney and Lundgerg also splurged on two Rolex watches, a maid for their mansion, two pure-breed dogs, as well as a medical spa. Whatever that is.
The couple continued to spend as they were living inside of a 7,000-square-foot-mansion that Kennedy paid $12,000-a-month-rent using his company’s credit card.
Nemera has found 8,800 improper charges on the company credit card between November 2015 and mid-March 2017. These charges have been linked back to Kennedy and Lundberg. Kennedy allegedly gave his stay-at-home escort access to the company’s card, which resulted in 18 months of mega-spending.
Lundberg allegedly threatened Kennedy to give her more money or she’d begin seeing customers again.
Kennedy told the Chicago Tribune: “I wanted to be loved and cared for. My heart kind of overrid (sic) my head and said, ‘Take a chance.’ Well, it blew up in my face.”
And now because Kennedy wanted love so badly he and Lundberg are now under investigation for fraud and money laundering.
Good luck with your love search, buddy.
