Mobile home saleswoman charged with embezzling from Charleston bank

A federal grand jury in Charleston has charged a saleswoman for a mobile home dealer with embezzling more than $120,000 from a local bank.

Carrie Hathaway was employed by Cross Affordable Homes. The Moncks Corner-based company had a contract to resell mobile homes that had been repossessed by First Federal Bank, according to an indictment filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court.

On at least three occasions in 2011, federal prosecutors charged, Hathaway didn't forward the proceeds to the lender. The sale amounts ranged from $34,900 to almost $53,000.

"As a result of the scheme and artifice to defraud, First Federal lost more than $120,000," according to the three-count indictment.

A court date has not been scheduled.

Hathaway is listed as the registered agent for Cross Affordable Homes with the S.C. Secretary of State. The business was formed in 2006.
