GREAT FALLS — A woman admitted in federal court in Great Falls on Monday that she stole more than $600,000 from a construction company when she was employed as its bookkeeper.

U.S. Attorney Leif Johnson said in a news release that 37-year-old Nicole Ann Lopez pleaded guilty to wire fraud.

Prosecutors alleged that in 2013, M&D Construction, Inc. hired Lopez as its bookkeeper. Lopez was given access to the company’s business enterprise bank account. Between 2017 and 2020, Lopez charged more than $600,000 on her personal credit card accounts for mostly consumer shopping and travel.

To pay her personal credit card expenses, Lopez directed approximately $611,000 in 72 payments from M&D’s business account into her personal accounts without the company’s authorization.

Court documents state:

Between January 2017 and January 2020, defendant Lopez charged over $600,000 on her personal Capital One credit card accounts. Her expenses focused mostly on consumer shopping and travel, and included over $80,000 on purchases from Amazon, over $115,000 on general retail purchases, over $46,000 on clothing, over $57,000 on travel, over $34,000 on restaurants, over $24,000 on beauty products, over $12,000 on furniture, and over $7,000 on plastic surgery.
