Windsor woman sentenced to five years in prison for $773,000 financial scam

A Windsor woman on Thursday was sentenced to five years in prison stemming from a scheme in which she bilked the title company where she worked out of more than $773,000.

Darella Bloch, 60, was charged in 2010 after the real estate company where she worked — LandAmerica Transnation Title Insurance Co. — realized there had been multiple thefts disguised as fees within several real estate transactions.

The company traced the money back to Bloch, who was found to have stolen $773,303, according to a news release from the Weld District Attorney’s Office.

In April 2011, Bloch entered a guilty plea for three charges and agreed to testify against Matthew Sysum in a separate case of mortgage fraud in exchange for dismissal of a count of unlawful activity concerning the selling of land in connection with the Sysum fraud.

The Weld County District Attorney has clamped down on white collar cases and, in the past eight years, has prosecuted 21 convictions leading to more than 110 years in prison, the release said.
