Bridget Johnson made one of the biggest robberies that have been recorded in Kenton County, Kentucky, but could not enjoy this fortune, because he gave it all to his lover, as reported by The Daily Beast.

Johnson, 59, and a divorced mother with two children was sentenced to 15 years in prison this week for transferring almost $4 million from her employer to an account given by a man she met online.
The woman confessed that she did not keep any penny of the money, besides she never met her 'lover' online.

Johnson met his lover on the Match.com dating page in early 2017, according to information provided by the authorities.

The mysterious 'boyfriend' told the woman who lived alone in Fort Thomas, Kentucky, but at the time was in Texas closing a business. At some point, the man told Johnson that if he could get a loan, he could finish his business ahead of time and go to spend a few days with them. It was at that time that the loving lady quickly transferred $6,000 of her own money.

The man continued to withdraw money in the same way for months and the woman ended up running out of her bank account and even the savings for her retirement, which amounted to almost $250,000.

When his money ran out, then Johnson began diverting money from the place where he worked for more than 20 years, the Northern Kentucky Visitors and Convention Bureau. She hoped her boyfriend would return her money before someone noticed she was missing.

Thus, Johnson took out $4,049,421 in a period of 16 months. For this, he issued checks to fake sellers and modified bank records to hide the missing.

Bridget Johnson was sentenced to 15 years in prison. Meanwhile, the man who planned the whole scam is still free and the investigation is ongoing.
