BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Federal prosecutors say an Arizona man fraudulently wired $450,000 to his personal accounts through an Idaho-based Internet business, using the money to enrich himself, pay for his home and bolster his retirement and investment accounts.
Christopher Myers of Cave Creek, Arizona, was indicted Friday by a federal grand jury in Boise on 26 counts of wire fraud.
Prosecutors say the 37-year-old Myers was comptroller for a company called Click Sales, Inc. for five years through 2011.
The company facilitated payments for transactions over the Internet for retailers and consumers.
According to Friday's indictment, Myers began transferring money from the company's bank account starting in August 2008 to his control.
Each charge could carry 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
An Idaho number listed for Myers has been disconnected.
