MILTON, Ga. – A Milton resident discovered Aug. 9 that his personal assistant allegedly stole thousands of frequent flyer air miles for personal use.
The victim said the assistant had been authorized to use the SkyMiles once, in December 2012, but when he recently checked the amount of miles in his account, he thought it low. A call to Delta proved that the assistant had booked flights allegedly in her own name using her boss's miles. She also allegedly took friends on flights using the SkyMiles. Nearly 700,000 SkyMiles were used, at a value of $25,000.
