Husband and Wife Business Owners Sentenced to Prison for Stealing Money From Local Band Students and Parents
It was an emotional day for students and their parents, who have been dealing with the Atlanta-based travel-tour company Harmony International for two years.
Husband and Wife Plead Guilty to Theft After Taking Thousands of Dollars from Local High School Band Students and Parents
The owners of a travel-tour company that promised to send dozens of local high school band students and their parents to Japan last year, only to cancel the trip last minute and not issue refunds may go to prison.
Brad and Margie Matheson, owners of Harmony International, face 93 felony counts and two misdemeanor counts including embezzlement, failing to maintain passenger funds in a trust account, and failing to provide refunds.
The attorney for the company told parents, “ultimately there is simply not enough money available to provide the refunds that were promised.”
