Fed Charge Woman In Elaborate Title Scheme

The U.S. Secret Service charged Elizabeth Sichler with various crimes including embezzelment of $2 million dollars from clients in an elaborate scheme where she misappropriated money from her escrow accounts for personal gain and replaced the money with funds deposited by new customers.

Jennifer Learn-Andes writes in her Times Leader article that Sichler, 58, was also charged with bank fraud and making false statements to law enforcement authorities for allegedly forging her daughter’s signature to obtain $3,650 and lying about her writing of 61 bad checks.

People who have experienced problems with Sichler or Priority Search and have not yet reported their case to authorities are asked to contact the Secret Service Scranton branch at 346-5781.
