A former employee of Card Player Magazine has been accused by the company of stealing $1.1 million from the magazine.

Shelby ‘Anna’ McCann is facing 23 counts of theft.  McCann had started working for Card Player in 2011 and left in 2016.

She was arrested at her home in Hawaii.

Card Player Magazine co-owner Allyn Jaffrey Shulman claims:

“All of the sudden there was no money to pay the bills…  this made us start thinking: What the heck is going on?”

A crowdfunding page set up to pay for McCann’s defence, under her old name Anna, had raised $468 prior to being taken down.

It had stated:

“The charges against her are so over the top it’s absurd. Without giving too much detail, they reported to police that every dime she made there over a base $37k/year salary was fraudulent and unauthorized.”

It is also claimed that McCann used a crowdfunding website to funnel upward of $22,000 for an adoption with checks written from the Card Player bank account”.
