According to the complaints, Fry’s alleged scheme was to use a Power of Attorney to steal and embezzle funds and fraudulently obtain insurance benefits by purportedly removing monies and funds from investment accounts, annuities and insurance policies he managed for the client and keep the money, in excess of $1.3 million, for his own personal benefit.
